Excellent heatsink but fan dead after 2 months
I'm starting to realize that Cooler Master fans are terribly unreliable. The heat sink on this is excellent though. It dropped CPU temps substantially. The stock AMD wraith cooler was junk. And the install was easy. Unfortunately, the fan on this cooler died in 2 months. LEDs still worked though so....

The fan is 120mm and uses two screw-on-to-fan plastics brackets that are leaps and bounds beyond the old bent wire clips for ease of usage. At just 80mm thick, with the fan, you do not have to worry about memory clearance issues as Cooler Master says that the Hyper 212 EVO 2 is 100% compatible on all motherboards for memory clearance. Advertisement Topping out at 155mm in height the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 2 will easily fit in a standard ATX case

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO Review - Still AMAZING in 2021
Conclusion. I guess that really brings me to this conclusion, and I’m going to say that the 212 Evo surprised me. In 2021- 10 years after its release – we are seeing this cooler still perform really, really well, and it’s priced so much lower than a lot of the other coolers on the market right now

Much better temps with the Ryzen 5 2600 compared to the stock cooler (Wraith Stealth)
Replaced my stock cooler that came with my Ryzen 5 2600 (Wraith Stealth) due to high temps. With the Stealth I was averaging about 40-45 celcius at idle and up to about 80-85 celcius under load (when rendering video or doing video file conversion after only about 2 minutes). Now with this new CM Hyp...

A major step backwards
I have owned several Cooler Master CPU coolers over the years including the somewhat infamous GeminII (the GIANT one, not the smaller more modern one). The Hyper 212 was an excellent design - so much so that every system I've built in the past three years has boasted one and I've even taken to buyin...

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Edition Review
The fan is a Silencio FP 120 which says it includes exclusive silent driver IC technology which allows it to reduce noise and power output and uses a 4-pin PWM for a CPU fan on your motherboard. The heatsink design uses a 4 heat pipes for excellent dissipation of heat and this is a nickel brass aluminum fins instead of the gray aluminum fins that you see on the older models like the Hyper 212 Evo or the Hyper 212. The specs of this scooter are great since the height of the cooler is 158 millimeters which means this scooter can fit into most PC cases As long the PC case height is about 158 or 160 millimeters above height support for this cooler

Never got to try it... shitty mount
I was super excited to find a fan to fit the Motherboard of my brother's computer and yet I didn't even get to finish installing it. I'm sure the fan would have been great but during the instillation of it, the heads of the screws when mounting the fan on to my mother board peeled like wet bread and...
