Excerpt: Sooo... I have a big case (HAF 932) but I am in a very dusty area. I taped a 12" x 12" heater filter on the side intake fan, all the other fans blow out. I used the Asus Fan Expert software to make my fans run at 100% as soon as the CPU gets to 77*F My room at the time was 86*F. I fired up Prime95 which slams all 8 cores of the CPU to 100% load HUH-LO! The temperature only rose to 113*F (45C), easily within the normal operating range.
Summary: I originally got a Corsair H80i and holy cow! that thing was so dang loud!it truly got annoying after the first night, also the cpu kept it around 40 degrees celcius under load which was alot better then stock CPU, so i went the next day and returned it for thius Hyper 212 EVO, i was skeptical at first since it wasn't a liquid cooler but i brought it home and installed it, im getting 35 degrees Celsius under load and it is soooooooooo quite! im in love!
Excerpt: i7-AsusMB-HAF932case-not overclocked. Something would fire up in the background and I would get a temp. spike. (sigh) With the 212, my temps are in the 70's (*F). Used to jump up to 120. I fire up as many apps as I can and can't get it over 95. Its about 2 1/2 inches taller than a cooling fan. We'll see what happens when I start editing video. You can install a second fan with the included hardware too. (I didn't).
Excerpt: Have had this in my rig for several weeks so far. I had a stock cooler on my old AMD Phenom II x6 1100t and the evo dropped my temps at both idle and load by about 10 degrees. Now she idles just a degree or two above room temp(23-24°c). Its also super quiet. To the point where if I'm having a conversation at my desk or the a/c turns on I can't hear it.<br /><br />Just be sure you measure your space because this thing is also really big.
Summary: This is a great heat sink and fan the base is very smooth and has good coverage and contact over the CPU. The fan is really well made and quiet. I got this one to replace a solid copper cooler that the fan fell off after running for about 6 years. The CPU now runs 15C cooler at idle and doesn't heat up very much during heavy usage.
