Still don't really understand the differences between the CM hyper 212+ and 212 evo
post #33 of 39
212+ is HDT(Heatpipe Direct Touch) with space between heatpipes in the base and 212evo is CDC(Continuous Direct Contact) in heatpipes both are HDT, plus uses a CM blade master 120, evo uses Xtraflo fan
plus

evo


and 212+ is slightly better than 212evo

Good God that's a minor difference, but every difference matters when it comes to computers. Thanks for clarifying.

1) The 212 Plus comes with a 2000 rpm fan and the US Evo comes with a 2000 rpm but the Euro Evo comes with a 1600 rpm fan.

I can't really tell what of these heatsinks Plus or Evo perform better without relying the others reviewers.
Usually I've heard that the Evo wins by somewhat 2 C.

I've heard from a fellow that he tested both the Plus and the Evo in the same system and Evo kept the processor 2 C cooler after one hour of Prime95.
I'm not sure about the processor but according to his current rig the processor is the Core I5 2550K.

2) The Xigmatek Dark Knight II seems to be a better choice over the 212.

I don't consider Thermaltake Frio a good cooler. Frio cools okay but is very noisy and way over priced for what it is.

Read one review and enjoy the looks of the Enermax ETS-T40-VD, but anyone actually know this thing, or have any other suggestions?
I know I've heard good things about the Xigmatek dark knight
I assume as you use NewEgg you are in America.

ETS-T40 is not all that good. Thermalright True Sprit 120 and Macho HR-02 are both much better.
ETS-T40 = 81.2c
T S 120 = 67.8c 13.4c cooler than ETS-T40
Macho = 66c . 15.2c cooler than ETS-T40
There probably isn't 13-15c difference but is only review I can find showing these coolers.. and I know both TS120 and Macho are very good mid range coolers. The basic TS120 was first introduced in 2006 as Thermalright Ultra-120 and Cogage True 120 and has always had top ratings.

True Spirit 120M $29.95 (remodeled True Spirit 120 with same size cooler offset and not as tall; better RAM and case clearance)
http://www.nansgaminggear.net/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=TS-120M

Macho HR-02 $42.95 (black/white fan or can get regular tan/blue-gray fan)
http://www.nansgaminggear.net/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=MACHO-REV-A-BW


Prolimatech Megahalems is a very good cooler. Better than True Spirit 120 if it will fit and you can find it at a good price. Here in UK they are $43-53.00 with no fans.

All of the CM 212 coolers are over rated and often over priced in today's market. True Spirit 120 is 4c cooler and quieter too.

I don't really recommending the Thermaltake Frio.

The Frio shows good performance in the reviews but relying with the high speed fans.

I just mentioned the Frio as reference because it fits the Shinobi.
