Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler Review



/ 5 years ago

Since its release in 2009, Cooler Master’s Hyper 212 Plus has gained a well-deserved ‘legendary’ status among a significant proportion of system builders. The concoction of enthusiast level performance and a ridiculously low price tag made the Hyper 212 Plus a legendary CPU cooler in every sense of the term. As times change though, so do prices. After a steady increase in price over the past few months, the Hyper 212 Plus has become a slightly less desirable product than it once was. Do you think that Cooler Master are happy with that? Oh no! To retain the price vs performance crown which the Hyper 212 Plus has held for so long, they have now introduced its successor, the Hyper 212 EVO.

The Hyper 212 EVO is very similar to its predecessor in terms of design. It utilizes 4 6mm copper heatpipes which converge to form a H.D.T (heatpipe direct touch) base. The heatpipes employ Cooler Master’s patented Continuous Direct Contact (CDC) technology which they claim will “act as a virtual vapor chamber that dissipates a large amount of heat”. Our testing will give you an idea as to whether their claims are true or not. An aluminium fin stack which is supposedly optimized to provide the perfect balance between high and low fan speeds will dissipate the heat carried through it by the CDC heatpipes. A 120mm PWM fan provides the Hyper 212 EVO’s airflow and is capable of pushing 66 CFM of air at a speed range of 600-1600 RPM (600-2000 RPM for the non-European version). Cooler Master claim that their fan’s “unique wave-shaped blade design” offers excellent airflow. Hopefully this claim is true as the Hyper 212 EVO is sacrificing 400 RPM of its fan speed in comparison to its predecessor.

Retailing for the low price of £23.98/€29,90/$35, the Hyper 212 EVO should appeal to budget conscious enthusiasts or overclockers, provided its performance is up to scratch. Support for all modern Intel sockets including LGA 2011 and all AMD sockets including FM1, Cooler Master have made sure that anybody can use their Hyper 212 EVO with minimal hassle. Can the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO live up to the high expectations its predecessor created?

    I think most people look for good cooling with a good price and quite at the same time. The 212 EVO sounds ok, but after this review I may be inclined to get the 212 Plus just for that reason.

      Both are great choices in terms of price, performance and acoustics. The choice depends upon preference. Some people may want the better performance of the 212 Plus whereas some may want the quieter operation of the 212 EVO.

    Your review is erroneous. The EVO's fan runs at between 600-2000 RPM, not 1600 as you stated, the same as the Plus. It has a greater CFM rating however, 24.9 – 82.9 compared to the Plus at 21.2 – 76.8. Also any other benchmark I have seen puts the EVO a few, to many, degrees ahead of the Plus. All statistics, except benchmark results, come directly from Cooler Master's website.

      Don’t be stupid
      read review properly
      Eu version DOES run in range of 600-1600 NOT 2000
