I bought a Hyper 212+ in 2011 and used it for 7 years. Was the EVO the replacement for the + model?

I would have to say yes.

The difference in the two models is in the Cooling plate. The Aluminum gaps between the Copper pipes is no longer present with the EVO and the pipes are actually touching. They never touched in the 212+.

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

Here is just one better and cheaper option

Edit: And here is another
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...3802-_-Product

Some of the other coolers on the list are less than $40 and all of those are newer better and cheaper than the ancient overrated overhyped mediocre 212
Please stop hyping the 212 its as old as the Intel Core I7 920 or the Geforce GTX 280 if not older and no one is hyping those

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.

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
Thanks for sharing. I'd love a better cooler for under $20!

Buying a 212 EVO for full retail price doesn't make sense with all the better options you mentioned.

I regularly see sales on the Hyper 212 EVO, bringing the price under $20. Thats cheaper than the alternatives and some of those alternatives look like clones.

My two Hyper 212 EVOs were $15/each after MIR from newegg around 2016.

Guess it all depends on what deal can be had

FrostyTech used to have really good rankings on heatsinks but doesn't seem as reliable these days due to the massive number of heatsinks available which aren't benchmarked. Knowing which designs are good makes it simple to find deals on that model.
