        "For someone looking for a budget cooler for a build that may even see some heavy overclocking, the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo is an excellent choice — especially for the money. The performance results and overall quality and simplicity of the cooler make it a very nice heatsink to work with and use. Installation is easy and applies even pressure, the fan clip-on mechanism is super fast and hassle-free, the fan itself is not loud at all, and the performance numbers are good. I will not hesitate to offer this cooler as my #1 suggestion to those on a budget!"

        "Overall, The Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO is a good unit for an replacement desktop cooler, though it’s not an ideal option or someone looking to get into serious overclocking. Even though throttling did occur on our mid and full torture tests, we were impressed with the choice of fan Cooler Master chose to pair with their HSF, striking a good balance between noise and performance. We would recommend this CPU cooler for light to medium overclockers who are looking for good cooling performance without having to hear it. "

        "The Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO to us one of those coolers that is over performing for the asking price. At $35, the price if definitely at the lower price range of the cooler spectrum and according to the testing that we have done here today proves that it is a pretty good cooler. If you are still using the stock OEM cooler from the manufacturer of your CPU, I would take this moment to run out and score a cooler like the Hyper 212 EVO. And if you are looking for better performance without spending much more money add a second fan and drop your temps a few more degrees."

        "Cooler Master have a real winner with their Hyper 212 Evo CPU cooler. The Continuous Direct Contact technology combined with a wide range PWM fan produced a highly efficient and quiet (at lower RPM) cooling solution which offers probably the best price performance ration on the market today. At the current $34.99 price it comes highly recommended by Review Horizon for any air cooled setup you have."

        "The Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO is a real evolutionary cooler. The direct-touch heatpipes with no gaps between them seems to be an excellent feature, managing to seriously improve the cooling performance seen on the Hyper 212 Plus."

        "This cooler performed quite well, especially given it's fairly unobtrusive size. Installation was fairly easy, and multiple configuration options should offer an ideal situation for nearly any situation. This cooler won't be something flashy to show your friends at the next LAN party, but at a price point of $35 USD it is cheaper than many of the flashier options out there. "

        "The Hyper 212 is a tower style core contact cooler that places each of the 6mm heatpipes directly across the CPU for the best thermal contact possible."

        "Overall, the Hyper 212 EVO was every bit as impressive as the Hyper 212 Plus. The new contact surface design really helps with the performance and also wastes less thermal paste, since you don’t lose a considerable amount in between the copper pipes anymore compared to the Hyper 212 plus."
