I could slow fans down about 100rpm with temps up about 5c and fans would be inaudible (<23dBA).
Ditto.

In USA most 4x heatpipe single towers with 120mm fan were significantly more money than 212 was, so it becaome a popular low cost cooler with decent cooling. In other places (like Europe) TRUE Spirit 120 was similar priced, as were a few other like Alpenfohn Matterhorn Pure .. so 212 didn't become as popular there.
Agreed, swear I got 212+s for like $15-18 on sale back in the day. At that price it is decent; ~$35 for the evo now seems insane...

doyll Hyper 212 Evo was never a 'good cooler'. But it was a well marketed cooler that performs close enough to other similar size and heatpipe coolers that used to cost more. It's low cost and excellent marketing made it a good seller, not a 'good cooler'.
