Cooler Master Hyper 212 alternatives

Ever since the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo came out it has been a cheap and extremely popular CPU choise so much so that it has built up a reputation as being the best choise there is and this is not true anymore

While the 212 Evo was a decent option many years ago and even up to a few years ago today there are many options just as good if not better then the 212 Evo in the same price range
The simple truth is the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo is outdated with many coolers available today that just as good or better for the same or less money

So why is so many still buying and recommending the old 212 Evo?
The reason for that could be many dont know any better or that they simply cant be bothered to find better options

Whatever the reason is my consumer advice is dont just buy a 212 Evo as the first thing without looking around first because as said there are better coolers out there that cost the same or less

I am not saying the 212 Evo is bad what i am saying pure and simple is that there are better options out there many of which some of have probably never heard of before
Now i know that OCN has members from all over the world so some of these better options are not available in your area or its priced higher or whatever

So here is a list of coolers that you should look at instead

# Alpenföhn Brocken ECO

Prices vary depending on location and availability
So please stop recommending and buying the 212 Evo because quite frankly it's time for it to go away

You don't have to imagine, it is reality. Are you rocking a Motorola Flip Phone, too? And can't imagine anything better than that flip phone? tongue.gif

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

The Ereboss looks like it has a lot more mass then most of the others and when it comes to air cooling more mass is better
At $33 it seems like a good deal and i have not heard or seen much of Raijintek before

Thats one of the reasons why so many pick the 212 Evo they know Cooler Master and they know the 212 Evo so they dont look beyond that and thats a shame

It seems like the Hyper 212 EVO is still a good pick among those coolers. Several of those mentioned in the earlier post are no longer available or have jumped in price...
Just to update this old thread.
