Should I keep my hyper 212?

I'm upgrading to a ryzen 3600 and I'm looking to manually overclock it to go a bit past 3600x stock speeds. Will my hyper 212 be ok for this? I hear bad things about it but it's worked for me for 4 years without a problem and I'd rather not spend the money on a new one if I don't have to.

Thanks for the help

the only thing bad about it is it's nearly twice the price as it was when it was popular and there are better alternatives for the price it sells for. if you already have one, they're fine.

see how temps look first but they'll probably be more than adequate if you're just looking for an OC that can be obtained without even touching voltage.

I agree with @The Pook . Try it first. It should be ok. If it's not, then get something better. No sense spending money if you don't have to.

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

I agree. When people where praising 212 it was because of the price per performance, that is no longer the case, it didn't jump massively in price but I honestly see so many better options.

I have 212 on my sons 4960X and it keeps the temps OK at stock and with bit of OC but it straggles opposed other coolers in that price range..look elsewhere, 212 is dated

If you are staying at stock speeds it will be fine but you'll probably need an upgrade if you intend to overclock beyond 100-200mhz over stock.

Also, I don't know where people are seeing these high priced 212 EVO's, but I just bought one for a buddy's HTPC build @ $23 USD shipped to my door. In the sub $25 price range it can't be beat.

$45 with $10 MIR, or $35 at Amazon but OOS.

They were available for $29 + $10 MIR on Newegg basically 24/7 when they launched.

Oh wow. At $45 even with an MIR it's just not worth it. I picked up one new in box on ebay for the $23.

Yeah, it's not that they are bad coolers. It's just that they are an older design, and not as good as some of the more modern "budget" coolers. With that said, it's alright for $23. The problem with the 212 is that it has enough of a reputation/following that many places mark it up these days.

I have an ANCIENT one that I always use to vet new chips before throwing them under a block.
some old stuff is definitely worth hanging onto.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

I wish I held onto my Cryorig H7 for (kind of) the same reason, it took less than 30 seconds to install and it did a good enough job for HWBOT and for testing components.

When my Le Grand Macho RT got replaced by an AIO I tossed the H7 and moved the Macho RT to backup/bench duty but the thing is a PITA to install and is overkill for just testing
