A great cooler for a number of different CPU sockets which gives massive advantages over stock.

Excerpt: I have purchased this cooler as part of an overall 1155 socket build for an Intel i2600k processor. I originally installed the cooler that came with the processor and later switched to the Hyper 212 to try and get cooler temperatures than the stock solution. First of all, this cooler is substantially larger than any ones I have seen before. The heat sink has three large copper pipes which come right down to the processor and draw the heat out through a thick radiator.
Excerpt: I purchased the hyper 212 from Ebay to use with my new 2500k. At idle with the stock cooler temps were around 40c. With this new cooler the temps are now 32c. I used the paste that came with it but will change it to artic silver later. Stock Hyper 212 Idle 40c 32c Load 70c 55c When under load you can see a big a difference in temps with the stock at 70c. I wasn't happy keeping it like that and reading on the net this cooler seems a popular choice.
