Summary: Got it after my Intel CPU i5 760 went over 105 degrees with stock fan. While running the same super stressful applications, this thing cooled it way below 70. Recommended for anyone not overclocking and find liquid cooling too expensive.
Summary: This is my second 212+ (first was on my AMD machine). Great cooler! The option to add a second 'push' or 'pull' fan is fantastic. Nothing out there beats this in value. Just get some good (on sale) TIM and you'll be able to overclock with low temps with ease!
Pros: - Great cooling for the price ($19), - Easy to install, - Comes with backplate
Summary: The 120mm PWM fan is held in place on the Hyper 212 Evo heatsink with plastic clips. To counteract an unbalanced impeller, which can lead to vibration and rattling noises, small rubber patches are applied to the four corners of the 120mm PWM fan. The Hyper 212 Evo accommodates a fan on either side of the aluminum fin tower. By using the extra fan clips a second 120mm fan can be installed by those that desire a push-pull fan arrangement.
Pros: compatible with Intel socket LGA1366/1155/1156/775 and AMD socket FM1/AM2/AM3 processors
Cons: the Hyper 212 Evo puts out about 47.1 dBA at full fan speed and whisper quiet at 600RPM (30.0 dBA).
