Summary: Normally I use the NZXT Dual 120mm Fan CPU Cooler with Four 8mm Head Pipes. They were out of stock so I tried the "Cooler Master Hyper 520" instead. It does its job and fits into the case a little better. A smaller footprint but also uses smaller fans and less heat pipes plus has a smaller area for dissipating heat and doesn't cool as well.
Summary: Got it for $17.99 and the installation was a breeze! The instruction not so clear but managed to install with no problem. Installation video is available on line if not sure. Highly recommend this product!
Summary: First of all, let me say that I dislike plastic snap fans because you can't take it off without breaking it. So I decided to try this. POORLY designed. For Intel processors, the fascet bolt springs didn't even keep the screw sturdy upon tightening. The screw started spinning with the phillips screwdriver. I wasn't able to make solid contact between processor and heatsink. I advice against this item for intel processors.
Summary: I had originally bought a Cooler Master RR-910-HTX3-G1 for my AMD Phenom II X 4 940 Black Edition CPU and thought I could get better results with this one, but NOPE! it actually ran HOTTER! I used the universal mount version of this cooler thinking that because of the 2 fans included with it, it would give me way more cooling,(not to mention it looks Way better) but it performed horrible, it was worse than the $19.99 RR-910-HTX3-G1!
Summary: This cooler can probably do its job just fine, except the item description is misleading. I've been running an Athlon x2 4200 Manchester 939 rig for about 6 years, and have been experimenting with overclocking. The stock cooler just wasn't cutting it antymore, so I looked at the hyper 212, which was out of stock at the time, so I figured for just a few dollars more, why not grab this one.
