  • Summary: Great fan but you will be surprised by how huge it is compared to your stock CPU fan. Keeps CPU around 30'C on idle wich is perfect. Easy to install you basically just need a Phillips screwdriver.

This is a high end air cooler

  • Summary: Built an X58 Core i7 920 with and EVGA X58 Classified motherboard a few years ago and tried a few coolers, including the corsair H50, and other air coolers like the CM V10 which were way to big and bulky and seemed that they would cause chip creep with the weight of the pressure. The Hyper 212+ cools better than the H50 and for me was all about the best performance for the smallest size. Added another fan for push/pull config and it hasnt let me down yet.
  • Pros: Great cooling performance, Quiet, Reliable, Small footprint

  • Summary: Amazing, for the price it has it does surprisingly well, but obviously much better than stock, Got temps from about 18-29 degrees on idle on a brand new 2500k. Took off a star because installing the cooler was a bit tricky and the manual was a bit hard to understand.

  • Summary: I installed the heatsink by itself without actually using the included 120mm fan. I searched for a good standalone heatsink for a good price - there is nothing out there. Comes with little noise-cancelling pads to ensure fan is quiet if used. Temperatures are great - even without the fan installed. The only downside was that it was quite difficult to install as the manual was small and unclear.

Fantastic cooler - quiet and BIG.

  • Summary: This is a fantastic cooler. It's important to watch the YouTube video CoolerMaster has released in order to correctly install the cooler. Once you watch that it's a snap. I've got an Antec 300 case and it fits inside with about 1/2 inch to spare - make sure your case is wide enough before purchasing! Fan is big and quiet; additional fans in case all pulling air through. System temps are essentially at room temperature.
  • Pros: Energy Efficient, Quiet
  • Cons: Instructions

Great product, great price.

  • Summary: I would have listed the product as easy to install, but the directions are not great. It is a fairly straightforward install and I would say anyone who has the need for this product should have no problem installing the cooler. It has drastically lowered my idle and heavy use temperatures and allows me to keep my case fans on their normal speed. Just measure carefully before purchasing as the cooler is very tall and needs to be in a case that can accommodate it.
  • Pros: Quiet, Reliable
  • Cons: Very tall

Amazing cooler

  • Summary: This is an amazing product. Using it to cool a stock clocked i7-870 on an Intel DH55TC motherboard. Even with the PWM fan control set to aggressive cooling, it never spins above 900 RPM (totally silent) under the heaviest of loads. No need to spend $50 or more on a cooler unless you are seeking the last two or three degrees of cooling.
  • Pros: Extremely affordable, Quiet, Very effective
  • Cons: A little difficult to ins

Cooler Master hyper 212 plus

C. Tan, J&R

  • Summary: My Athlon II Dual Core sat at 45* C on idle, and under load, it would shoot upwards of 70* C. One day, I came home and discovered that it had shut itself off due to an overheat. I replaced the stock cooler with the Hyper 212 plus, and it dropped the idle temperature to 30* C. Under a Prime95 test, it doesn't exceed 40* C. Right now, the ambient room temperature is 26*, so the cooler does a pretty amazing job at keeping my CPU's temperature down.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Quiet

Excellent cooling

  • Summary: I did lots of research on quiet aftermarket coolers before finally selecting this one. I cannot say how the original fan performs with this cooler though as I used a [@] 120mm fan favorite of theirs. But, it is keeping my processor cool, idling around 28 degrees. And, with the fan I've put on it, it is very quiet. I didn't even know if the fan(s) were spinning until I looked in and adjusted bios to run them at full speed.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Energy Efficient, Quiet, Reliable
