Only $30, when most high-end heatsinks are priced at $50+ on NewEgg. If you want your CPU to run cooler for a cheap price, the Hyper 212+ is perfect.
The manual has two to three pictures each step, along with the most minimal of a sentence that describes what the pictures want you to do. You're better off watching the youtube video that Cooler Master uploaded.
Once again, I strongly advise just throwing out the given instructions and view the video that Cooler Master has uploaded to youtube. Installing was a bit tricky at first, one of the nuts refused to go the entire length of the screw, needed pliers to force it the rest of the way. After attaching the backplate, the rest of the process went very smooth.
I installed this heatsink to a week-old i5 750 CPU. Temps were running 45C idle with stock heatsink. After applying the Hyper 212+, the i5 dropped to 28C idle. I have yet to encounter temperatures above 35C on heavy load. Overclocking the i5 to 3.6GHz, the temps rise to 37C idle, which is simply amazing. I previously tried to O/C with the i5's stock heatsink, and the temp skyrocketed to 65C after booting Windows.
Comes with a 120mm fan attached onto the heatsink. The metal clips make it very easy to remove the fan for heatsink installation. Has an extra two metal clips in case you would like to add an additional fan on the opposite side for more airflow. In terms of noise, my case fans are louder than the packaged 120mm fan. The PC is positioned about 10 feet away from my bed, and I have no trouble sleeping because of noise.
The 212+ also came with its own thermal paste, a great little addition for those not wanting to spend $10 for a couple uses.
The only negative standpoint I would have with this heatsink is the size. Luckily, my case has a sidepanel window which bows out, allotting JUST enough clearance for the Hyper 212+ to fit. Make sure you measure the inside of your case before purchasing!
Other than water cooling, I have yet to purchase a heatsink that decreases the temperature by such a drastic amount. It is a great product for a cheap price, and I will be purchasing this heatsink for every new rig I build.
1. This heatsink fits many CPUs/motherboards (1156, 1155, 775, AMD, etc.), which actually complicates installation a little. There are three different settings for the brackets depending on your motherboard and CPU, so you have to be sure and follow the correct instructions for your board. Not too hard if you know what the final outcome is supposed to look like. The enclosed instructions didn't show the settings for 1155 on it, so I just followed the 1156 instructions, which worked fine. SETUP = 4 stars
2. The heatsink is tall (it wouldnt fit in either of my standard Dell or HP cases based on the measurements), but fits fine in my Antec DF-85 case I bought for my new PC with room to spare. If you're unsure, take some basic measurements before ordering. DIMENSIONS = 4 Stars
3. It is quiet. There is a huge fan on it, but the fan doesnt any real noise at all when I tested it running by itself (case fans disconnected). Running with the 7 other fans in the case didnt change the overall noise profile. NOISE = 5 Stars
4. Running a i5-2500K CPU at 4.5Ghz (overclocked from 3.3Ghz) with Intel stock cooler and CPU running at 100% load: 70 degrees. Same CPU setup with Cool Master Hyper 212 Plus and CPU running at 100% load: 55 degrees. COOLING/VALUE = 5 Stars
6. You can buy and clip on a second fan to the heatsink. So one can push air through the back and the other can blow that air out the front. I think people call this "push-pull". With 8 fans running I dont need a 9th, so I dont know, but its great that you could add a little more cooling ability to the heatsink. EXPANDABILITY = 5 Stars.
I have yet to take advantege of using dual 120mm fans, the factory fan seems to be suffice to keep my 3.75Ghz 1.36vcore e5200 consistant at 52C 24hrs on prime95. I cannot distinguish between the noise of this and the three other stock fans in my case except for my XFX9800GT's factory fan. I will recommend this to any enthusiast and even lable the product a "must have". I am looking forward to mounting this on a future planned socket 1366 or 1156. Have a good day.
My Gigabyte motherboard doesn't offer much control over the fan speed so I'm using the free SpeedFan program to control the speed for different temperature levels. At idle the processor is 38C and the fan is set to a silent 70%. At full load the processor is 53C and the fan is barely audible at 80%. I like my computer to be quiet.
The mounting bracket is a bit fussy but I had it mounted in 10 minutes or so. It has a backplate which is a good thing because it allows a tighter clamp and puts less stress on the motherboard. I'm cheap and I used the thermal paste that came with it.
At 26 degrees Celcius room temperature, my i7-920 at stock speed stays at around 37 degrees, which isn't that good (almost same as stock cooler). HOWEVER, when I use Prime95 to stress my CPU, the load is only around 55 degrees. When I overclock my i7 to around 3.4 Ghz, it stays at 40 degrees idle and around 58 degrees on maximum performance.
Therefore, my conclusion is that while this cooler does not show much performance at low temperatures, its efficiency increases as the temperature goes up.
This cooler sells for around $30, and most people should be enough with this, unless you are going to overclock until your CPU becomes almost fried with extra voltage.
This cooler comes with its own thermal compound. The backplate was a little hard to install because the screws did not go through easily.
For installing an after-market cooler for the first time, it took me around 45 minutes to install.
The dual fan configuration does make a slight difference, but not so significant.
Fits almost any mid-tower case. I had an Antec Nine Hundred case, and this cooler fit in my case with over 5mm clearance from the top of the cooler to the side panel, although it blocked me from installing a side fan.
Another thing to note:
This cooler has a sleeve bearing fan. You CAN install it so that the fans are horizontal, but then the fans will be loud and have reduced performance and life. It is NOT RECOMMENDED to do so.
If you want to do the horizontal setting, either get a new fan with rifle, ball bearing or buy a cooler that comes with a rifle or ball bearing fan, such as Cooler Master V8 (Price: $70)
