Are you in the USA?
I ask because the price is likely different if you are not in USA.

It already happened, and I will join in the chorus of H7 or be quiet! Pure Rock. Both are far better overall than the 212. @doyll will be along momentarily to point out the appropriate Thermalright.

If it fits in yours cases a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Are on my second 212 Evo now rolleyes.gif


https://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Hyper-212-RR-212E-20PK-R2/dp/B005O65JXI
Amazon sells the for USD 29.50.
If the fan would be worn out after a couple of years the 212 Evo comes with extra fan mounts for any 120mm fan.

First was bought last spring and used with a FX-6350 processor but I had no plans to ever getting me an Intel processor so I threw away those parts for 1150/1151 socket mounting.
Bought the second one now recently for an Intel i5-6600k and ditto MB+DDR4 RAM.
As the Hyper 212 EVO kept the FX-6350 cool and very quiet, I just decided for another one (being a little angry with myself, not saving those 1151 parts).

The FX-6350 will be put to use again,some day..

Edit: Seeing now that TS only had 212X, saw they where around for some extra bucks compared to the 212Evo, but with the experience of 212Evo I had no trouble saving me some money by choosing the 212Evo.

In what ways is the 212 better than the H7 in your first hand tests? When I tested the H7 and Pure Rock against the 212, both outperformed it while being considerably quieter, looking better and having more developed mounting systems.

I never wrote anything about 212Evo or 212x would better than anything else, where did you get that from?

I only wrote that I'm satisfied with the 212Evo and didn't even consider any other cooler for my i5-6600K cpu. As it kept a FX-6350 cool and stayed silent, it will do that with a i5-6600K with a lower TDP (un-clocked)

That, and the "buy what I have since it must be better than components I have absolutely no first hand knowledge of" posts are way out of hand.
