Hyper 212 is a fantastic bang-for-buck proposition. I've helped a few friends build their systems and the only ones without a 212 had a Ryzen with a good Wraith cooler.

I own two, will probably own a third when I get around to building the home server.

It is what it is.

But the cryorig M9i/a/Plus is basically the same temps, quieter, looks better, and smaller, and cheaper, so why go for hyper 212?

I don't consider adding my opinion of 212 to the list as being 'sarcastic', but a simple statement of what many of us consider a fact .. possibly making this a sarcastic statement.

No its not there are much better bang for buck coolers out there this is 2019 not 2009
By the way i once bought a 212 and i was not at all impressed with it

Its mediocre at best and its been so overrated and overhyped that its gotten ridiculous so please stop hyping it

Not worth buying today when there are many coolers that are much better in the same price range or cheaper and more quiet as well

Because the 212 is better known and its been so overhyped that everyone and their mom and her dog knows about it
There is a saying that goes repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth

OK so TLDR I didn't read all 6 pages LOL.

I'm with the OP, and the 212 series is the absolute best bang for the buck cooler you can buy, even today in 2019. You naysayers need to show me a $20ish cooler that can do what these things can do.

When I got my Ryzen 2700x I tried the rainbow brite oem / wraith prism rgb cooler. It sure looked neat. But it also got pretty loud and the temps were lousy. Since it was AM4 I bought a new Hyper 212 dual turbo model (black, 2 fans for push/pull) for $25 after MIR. The only difference over the plus/evo is 2 fans (and it's black). I think push/pull is overrated, but this $25 heatsink is so massively superior to the Wraith prism, and it's nearly silent.

On top of the before mentioned Arctic Freezer 33 Coolers (and the new Freezer 34 @ 22 eur) which have always been better and are currently better than the Hyper 212 in both pure price, pure performance and price/performance, i want to add the :

LC-Power Cosmo Cool LC-CC-120 which has taken the crown from the Hyper 212 since 2014 and at least in Europe is priced around 14 eur and is the best price/performance Cooler in the world since 2014.

And it's bigger brother LC-Power Cosmo Cool LC-CC-120-RGB for 22 eur, which is the best price/performance matte black rgb Cooler since it launched.

As for the US market, while there's a Deepcool Lucifer v2 for $35 nothing else matters, simply nothing in the US can beat this price point while the stock on amazon lasts.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00S0Q1UKA/?tag=pcpapi-20

The sales of Raijintek Themis at SuperBiiz for $19 https://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php...a303b90a18050d

and the unfortunately finished Themis Evo sale also at SuperBiiz for $26 are also a worthy mention https://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php...e0002e0a180510
I haven't seen a modern comparison including the 212 platform. The only comparisons I have seen are AIO comparisons and obviously 212 is not AIO.

I don't know when this Video Review was made but two things are incorrect about the 212 in my experience.

First, there is no gap between the aluminum and the copper in depth. Simply untrue. Maybe the one he had, indeed had a gap. But he didn't SHOW said gap. Atop of this, the pipes are tight up against each other. No Aluminum between them. That may have been an issue(my first 212 was much like his but no RGB as it was 2012 when I owned it and it's since gone on to a client build) with the RGB but I don't know when this was done and it was only one of the MANY versions of the 212.

2nd the clip retention sfaik was done away with since the mounting bracket has AM4 retention built in now. My 212s all have the X bracket mounting solution and all of them work quite well. Although my brother did have to order the bracket, since AM4 was new release at the time he got his 212. He has 2 of them.

My EVO keeps my 1800x a chilly 34-37*c. Granted it's not clocked but when I am gaming on it(GTA V, JC3, Skyrim and any one of the 100 games I have) the 212 still keeps it round upper 30's-low 40's.

I wouldn't say that 212 is the greatest cooler available. I am sure there are better. But at the price point and when you can get them on sale, it is indeed one of the best at what it does. Based on the information given I think this video was made in late 2016 to early 2017 back when Ryzen was first launched. CoolerMaster has since gotten rid of the clip retention of the AM4 socket. I don't believe(though I could be wrong) that there is a single model that includes that retention method. Also 212 EVO is a completely square cooling plate. All four sides meet the top of the CPU. I looked at mine last night and I could see Thermal Paste and the CPU underneath the cooler from a straight downward perspective.

I am really starting to feel my Oats as a long time member of OCN. Why did we go back to this system again?

I didn't watch the whole video. I don't know why nowadays we have to watch youtube videos of talking heads instead of just reading actual facts. I am not a fan of the current "hey I own a cellphone so I deserve my own youtube tech review channel" fad. (I guess you could remove "tech review" out of that statement and still be true, LOL)

But I did flick through it and the complaint I caught was that the fan orientation wasn't ideal. I have 3 of these things in use and I can tell you it is easy to change the fan orientation any way you like.

And on Newegg the Deepcool Gammax is $25, so the same price or even more after the usual mail in rebates. How is this one "better"? True, the competition has copied their design and there are more similar looking options. But are they better? Cheaper?

I mean I'm not trying to be a butthead... but I have owned 5 of these things, and currently own 3 including 1 of the newest version. If anyone is going to make a complaint about it, it should be about the mounting system. But even that is "meh" once you've actually done it once.

NewEgg sells the Gammaxx 400 on sale regularly...at least for 2 months off and on earlier this year.


As for the video, it’s one year old...also DeepCool isn’t a new company....they’ve been around for years already.

$16.99 is hard to argue with and skip the rebate games. I'd try one.
