The only thing all these kinds of threads are doing is causing new builders to keep buying 212's, while there are much better coolers in the same price range nowadays.
What do you get to be much better at the price point of a 212? In a case well configured it can handle pretty much of a beating even mildly overclocking top consumer CPUs with normal temps.
If ryzen 3000 is what i expect it to be, coolers like 212 will regain a lot of relevance back again.
