Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO V2 CPU Cooler Review

I never had the chance to ever use the OG Hyper 212 EVO. I heard a lot of great thing about that cooler though. It was widely know for great cooling at a decent price. So the fact that this is a newer version, must mean its better, right? I would like to be able to directly compare the two but I will have to rely on what I can see with my eyes and comparing the specs. One thing I noticed was how much easier the V2 will be to install. The old system looked like it could have been somewhat challenging compared to the new brackets. The new system seems to be very straight forward. Another thing that is better, are the SickleFlow fans.

I have reviewed several of these fans in the past, just the fans and when they were installed on coolers. I will tell you, these fans do a good job of moving air. These coolers are exactly what you would want if you are looking for decent cooling capabilities that won’t break the bank. If you can save a few bucks on cooling, why not? I have been on an AIO for a long time and really don’t see going back to an air cooler anytime soon. But there is something I do really miss about air coolers. There is just something about all that shiny aluminum contrasted with polished copper that really makes me miss air coolers.  



The Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO V2 is redesigned with an Asymmetrical tilt to guarantee RAM Clearance, along with revised brackets to assure the ease of installation. It is also paired with Cooler Masters’ new SickleFlow 120 fan to improve cooling and acoustic performances.


I would like to thank Cooler Master for providing this review sample! Let us see what Cooler Master has to say about themselves on their website:
