The Frio destroys it. Its one of the best 1366 coolers money can buy, up there with the NH-D14, according to a roundup.

Any overclocking? I would say the Hyper 212+ because it is much cheaper, you can put another fan on it, it performs very well. Obviously if you only had the choice between those 2 and you were overclocking the Frio would be the better choice...

well I have both and have the hyper 212+ installed right now but am planning on building another pc for my dad and was wondering if it was worth the trouble of taking off the hyper 212+ and switching it out for the frio.

Frio is definitely better (according to reviews), but hyper 212 may be good enough for your needs. What temps are you getting and what kinda overclocks are you running or hoping to achieve?

its all about how much OC you gonna do

if are going to really push your CPU to the limit then get the Frio otherwise the CM212 is the one to get

I'm OC to 3.2 right now and getting ~60c under load with 25 ambient. I want to try to get 4 later on.
