True 120 Xtreme vs Hyper 212 EVO

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I currently have a Hyper 212 EVO that I switched from a Corsair H60. But I found my old True 120 Xtreme.

I'm wondering which is better.

I've lapped the True, may have to go and get some fine grain sandpaper to polish it up a bit since there are some minor scratches.

But I'm wondering if it really is any better. Sure it's got 2 more heatpipes, but the Hyper 212 EVO has the heat pipes directly touch the CPU, unlike the True where its not.

Any thoughts?


My current temps:

Idle: Avg of 42
Load: Avg of 55 (Using Core Damage)

With the H60 my temps were slightly higher.

Now I don't plan to overclock, I'm undervolted actually. It just doesn't get me very much with what I do.

But would slapping on my True do much?

well the evo is already in and it's working at overkill levels, and I assume you can't hear it mostly because I can't hear mine. The true might maybe work better, but is it even worth the bother of changing it out?

What did you do with that h60 btw? I may be in the market for one soon. I'm looking at throwing an AIO on a GPU.

Well I switched it out, and it's actually on par with the Hyper 212 EVO, maybe a TINY bit better. Haven't tried OC temps yet. Also note I'm not using the stock fan, I have a pair of Corsair SP120 in a push/pull on it.

I'm going to return the Hyper 212 to the store, I only got it last week. Just a 5% restocking fee from $30.

I have the H60 sitting on my desk marked for sale locally since I don't have enough rep to sell it on here.
