Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus/EVO Club - Page 631

post #6301 of 6664
Is the hyper 212 really as bad as people say it is?

I posted that I'm using a cooler master hyper 212 evo on my 5820k and I was straight out attacked by overclock.net members boxing3.gif

I posted reviews, showing that the hyper 212 does very well and is consistently ranked as one of the best air coolers available.

No one cared, they just continued to attack me without providing any evidence that it was a bad hsf.

What gives? I've never had a problem with it, my 5820k runs great at 4.4 at 1.27v with the hyper 212 evo

yet I'm being personally attacked over a hsf that I'm having no problems with?

I wouldn't say it is the best cooler ever. But it is very popular and can be easily found. It has good cooling. It cheap. It's isn't too loud. It fits a very wide variety of sockets. It is a good solid choice that you can't go wrong on. It has decent performance for mild to mid range overclocks as well.

If you want to overclock your chip above 4.5 ghz or so I would suggest spending a bit more money to get something that will help keep your chip cooler.

Edit: MaximumPC seems to like it a lot. Gave it a 10 Kick Ass award.

I would not and did not say it was the best cooler ever, however it does rank well in numerous reviews so I said it was "one of the best"

Like you said, MaximumPC gave it a 10 out of 10, is it wrong of me to say that something that got a perfect 10 out of 10 review is "one of the best"?

Why waste precious energy worrying about replies in a forum? If you are happy with your 212 then be happy..I can run my Hyper N520 on a 8320 at 4.5 and it hasn't burst into flames just yet and the 212 is a better cooler than the n520(I have stupid airflow, though! Not stock by any perspective!) You can't take Inet forums too seriously as you never know who is off their meds that particular day IMHO. Especially here. You don't know who is a 15 year old gamer or a type A OCD overachieving Engineer type...It's all a matter of opinion. Mentally block out the garbage posts and just take in the relevant info and you'll be much happier in the end.

it's ok now, looks like moderators got involved and removed the trolls thumb.gif

idk, everyone here has always been so level-headed for the past few years, it was just weird to see this happen

Part of the reason they gave it that score is because of it's low price.

If you had NO BUDGET CONCERNS, I wouldn't say it is one of the best in terms of absolute performance. It is very good at the price point. It is a high value per dollar performance rating.

I'm really happy with mine after changing the fans, the low price being a major factor.
With my budget I personally couldn't justify stepping up to noctuas D15 cooler as double the price didn't result in half of delta t above ambient lol.
I was planning to watercool everything in a few months but might just stick to watercooling the gpu for now and do the cpu later as I will only be hunting a 4-4.5ghz over clock

I agree, I never said it was THE BEST, but it has a lot of desirable features, including high performance for a low price and it's not too incredibly large so it should fit most cases and motherboard designs.

I'm not a fan of water-cooling, if the pump dies you're SOL. At least with two fans and a giant HSF both the fans would have to die and the cpu pegged at 100% before too much worry.

Guys i have an overheating problem with my FX-8350 thats bugging me for a long time. im using the rig listed on my signature, and i was pretty sure i had a bad motehrboard (used to have an gigabyte 990xa-ud3 rev 3.0). I was so sure it was the source of my heating problems (even the NB was overheating on it), that i managed to sell it and got an used ASUS corsshair V formula for a little extra cash (needless to say im on a tight budget here).

So for my sad surprise, the overheating kept happening. Although its true that im using a cheap brandless thermal paste right now, i used to test with thermaltake tg-3. In fact i did so many tests that i spent it all. So im afraid the problem is either the cooler or the psu.

I cant think why psu would make it overheat, if anyone know its a possibility, let me know. So lets focus on the coolers now.

As i said, i have a coolermaster evo 212 plus, but i also tested on stock cooler and got similar results. some times better on stock. Tested both with thermaltake tg3 and the cheap TIM, and results were pretty much the same.

Last night i left BIOS all in stock, 4.0ghz and stock vcore, and temps slowly got higher, reaching 70ºC in less than 5min. If i try to overclock, it will reach 80ºC in like 15seconds. Ill post screens when i get home. As for now, im already considering a new cooler, but i was wondering:

My coolermaster base is not completly flat, as in the photo bellow:


i think this let some air in betwen the heatpipes, which is not helping my case. And to consider some times the stock cooler gets better temps (still high) i was wondering if thats a real problem.

Yeah, the cm212 is not supposed to be flat as Cooler master understand that IHS on cpu's are not flat themselves. However regarding the overheating, is it hot in your house? You have good ventilation?
