Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 CPU Cooler Review
The 212 EVO has one of the best direct contact bases of all computer fans. It has a Heat Sink what is covered in copper with only a minuscule stripe across the surface. The Hyper 212 EVO has the ‘new’ CDC or Continuous Direct Contact. This pushes the heat pipes much closer together than the previous 212+, eliminating these gaps and this in turn increases the heat transfer capability of the base. It operates at 2000 RPM and moves a lot of air at 83CFM.
Included in the accessories that you get with this product are universal backplate and mounting crossbars, nuts and screws for its mounting, four rubber dampening pads as well as plastic rails and screws in order to attach and additional optional fan, Hex tool and thermal plate. You also get a quite comprehensive manual.
Installing and uninstalling this product is very easy and only takes a second or two to accomplish. There are not a lot of the wires, wire fan clips or rubber nails that make some other systems really painful to install.
This product has great idle temperatures, due, in main, to the direct interface between the CPU and the cooling system. The one downside is that it does not cope that well with heavy loads, but for a small product it still performs well.
