Great cooler, but you need a biggish cabinet to be comfortable.
28 December 2014
Summary: Excellent cooler. Upgraded from a Hyper TX3 which was 4 years old and at its life's end. Great cooling. Very silent. It's a little bit tricky to install if you're on an AMD chipset, because you have to remove the existing backplate and replace it with the custom one. Once that's done, though.
Summary: Newer version of the hyper 212 Evo. Works great temps at heavy load 60-75C b4 it wld reach upto 95-100C. Rendering 3d images does not scare me ne more. make sure thermal paste forms a thin layer than a thick one.
Summary: There is no doubt that Hyper 212x is best cpu after cooler in the market. Important point is The CPU Cooler height is 158mm. Please check whether ur cabinet support the height. On corsair website there is specification regarding cpu cooler height it supports. Please consider this fact before buying.
