Coolermaster's Hyper 212 Evo heatsink stands 160mm tall, weighs in at moderate 569 grams and packs in four exposed 6mm diameter copper heatpipes on its base. Otherwise the Hyper 212 Evo is a pretty standard 'tower' heatsink. A 600-2000RPM,...

The new Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO doesn’t set any performance records, but it is not actually supposed to. Considering its price, it is only meant for moderately overclocked CPUs. And the Hyper 212 EVO meets this purpose well enough, coping with...

So what do we make of the Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO? Well I think the first thing to bear in mind here is the price. £23.98 is not a lot of money for a cooler of this type. But have Coolermaster cut corners somewhere to bring it to market at...

The Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO is a very straightforward cooler, there are no real bells and or whistles, unlike some monstrous behemoths we’ve seen that sport three fans. The EVO maintains a very slim profile, is rather lightweight, and we like...

The Hyper 212 is a tower style core contact cooler that places each of the 6mm heatpipes directly across the CPU for the best thermal contact possible. This configuration works great in that it reacts quickly to changes in thermal load but tends to...

De Cooler Master 212 EVO is een hele goeie koeler qua prijs/kwalitiet. Hij is zelfs in staat om een I7 2600K @4.2Ghz redelijk goed te koelen. Het enige minpuntje is de fan, die is redelijk luidruchtig. maar verder, top koeler! Gebruikt in...
