CM Hyper 212+ vs CM Hyper 212X

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
which one is much better?
post #2 of 8
The 212X is new and I haven't seen a comparison yet and I only know of one person that has one however he hasn't installed it yet. Personally I would get the 212 Evo over the 212+ its a better cooler and not that much more money. The 212X is just too expensive for what your getting a little more money and you can get a Noctua.

HOWEVER depending on where you are located the cost of the 212X is almost the same as the 212 Evo, in that case get the 212X.

Silverstone Argon AR01. Same dimensions as the 212's, same performance as an Evo (and cheaper), better performance than a Plus, easy installation and the best fan mounts in the business.

Could also take a look at the thermalright true spirit 120/140.

It's supposedly a bit better performer and the fan has the new POM bearing (which I don't know much of but it should be an improvement over the previous XtraFlo and Blademaster in terms of lifetime and noise levels...).

If it's the same price or a tad more, I say go for it. Of course if you have comparable Silverstone or Thermalright products available these are worth considering too.

Here's the promised info on the 212x. Also posted this on the 212 club.

From where I am, it's price is 40$. Since the price is same with 212 evo, I opted for the newer 212x.

Here's some pictures, sorry if the image is not crisp and clear, I'm just using a low end point and shoot camera.

The BOX:



Accesories:

Bracket, Mounting Plate, Extra Fan clip for p and p config, Motherboard Standoff, CM TIM, screws, rubber for fan clips.





The Heatsink:


They have added this criss cross thingy, CM website says its for better heat dissipation:


Also new to the design is are these holes forming V shape found at the bottom of the heatsink. I guess this controls the air to move towards the heatpipes:


The holes go all the way up to the top, which I hope you can see in this picture:


The heatpipes, nothing new:




The Fan
Newly designed fan, it's a good looking fan.







Fan on Heatsink:




Installed:





TEMPS
I have i7 2600k on stock, the room temp is 30 C.

I've used a Noctua NT-H1 thermal paste.

IDLE:


LOAD:


Overall very satisfied with this cooler, fan is quiet. I'm surprised that it performs 1-2 C better with my old Antec h2O 620 which I retired and replaced with this cooler.

Now I can't compare it with EVO or past versions of 212 since I did not owned one before, this is my first 212. But for it's price, it's really a good performer.
