Cooler Master’s Forte has always been cost effective solutions be they cases, coolers, power supplies or the rest of their vast catalogue of products. An impressive feat however is their constant commitment to quality and more importantly the lack of compromises made in achieving this affordably. It’s no surprise then that Cooler Master is a household name spanning from the mainstream to the enthusiasts. A key product that has defined Cooler Master’s philosophy has been the Hyper 212, a budget four heat-piped tower cooler that has somehow managed to withstand the test of time by outcompeting more expensive solutions even from the likes of Noctua. Without breaking this winning formula, Cooler Master have recently revamped their cooler line-up with several new additions to their ‘Hyper’ series including the recently reviewed Hyper 612S including several variants of that, and the Hyper 414S/PWM. At the lower end, the Hyper 212 has undergone some minor changes aimed at further improving performance without increased costs. Dubbed the EVO, the new Hyper 212 boasts some very impressive innovations.
