Great quiet fan
24 January 2012
Summary: The fan is very quiet at lower power settings. My hard drives spinning make more noise. You can hear it when it is running at the faster RPM's. I do like that it is PWM controlled fan- it adjusts the fan speed on its own, I guess actually the MB controlls it. Just remember to install this before you put the MB in the case. Part of this unit installs on the back of the MB.
Summary: I was using the stock cooler with a i7-3770K. When I ran the experience assessment (8.1 system, 8.0 CPU), the 70C alert fired off without any overclocking. I replaced the stock cooler with the Hyper 212 EVO. Now it will reach 46C, and that's with overclocking to 4.2 GHz (8.1 system, 8.2 CPU). At idle, the CPU and MB are about the same at 30C. The MB is often hotter than the CPU by a degree or two.
Summary: I bought this for a new build, installed on an Intel I5 3570K processor, keep this processor good and cool. This thing is huge, barely enough room to put the side back on my case (an Ultra Gladiator Mid Tower), very happy with the purchase.
Summary: Awesome CPU Cooler! First time every trying it and its great. Over clocked my A8 to 4.1 with no voltage change. Keeps my temps on idle mid 30s and under load low 50's. Couldn't ask for much better.
