yeah, because every cpu cooler with four 6mm heatpipes is a 212+ clone rolleyes.gif

@ts

it depends on wich price you can get them for. for 20$ it's probably untouchable.

The True Spirit 120 is actually cheaper in europe so it's a better deal over here.

Currently, 212+ costs US$29 (with free shipping) in Newegg while the A70 costs US$24 (after mail in rebate and with free shipping). 


guh.

including mail-in rebates in a comparison is just straight up misleading, man.

the stone cold fact is, he'll be paying out around 53 bucks at checkout and who knows when he'll see that fourty back. So it's not very fair to compare these two on that point.

A70 beats Hyper 212, only when the price is right.

Plus the fan on A70 is louder than Hyper 212.
