Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooling System - Proven Performance - 4 Continuous Direct Contact Heat Pipes, 120mm PWM Fan
About this deal
Data comparisons are based on data collected from testing performed on our new Intel i9-10850K system, including re-visiting many previously covered products which were originally covered on the prior testing platform which pivoted around an i7-5930k (4.20ghz @1.20v).
You should also get a program that watches the power draw. It should be 200W+. It might even be 225W. Personally I use Core Temp for that. Due to mechanical limitations, AM4 upgrade kit is only supported by the Hyper 212 LED AM4 compatible version. Our Flir One Pro thermal imaging camera shows some noticeable differences in heat soak throughout the cooling tower itself between 50% and 100%, which is to be expected. There is also a slightly lower thermal signature in the adjacent regions at full speed, which indicates the added benefit of improved airflow.If your system is always greeting hot and affecting how different programs are run, you need a cooling device to combat the heat. There are tons of coolers to choose from, including liquid and air coolers. The Noctua NH-D15 and Evo 212 are two such devices with capabilities to help your computer function efficiently.
I think more interesting comparisons would be with the Windale 4 and the Gammaxx 400. These are the value choices.The Hyper 212 cooling device is more of a budget option considering its specifications, while the NH-D15 offers more. A fan splitter isn’t part of this device, even if the Evo 212 allows for a simple connection to a second fan. If you want to add to the setup, you’ll need to get more fan headers. What’s more, there’s no RGB LED on this device but a primary cooling system. It was made to provide a balance between high and low-speed operations.
We have to state that the Hyper 212 Evo performs exceptionally to keep the temperature down. It does so through quiet operations built around a noise level of 36 dB, which is closer to the benchmark expected of coolers. However, the considerable size means you need enough space to fit it in.However, the overall build and size will consume some space, but the speed and efficient noise control are worth it. – Performance: Keeping the Temperature Down
