Ships with 1 fan, but you can put a fan on the other side as well. mount it pointing up or to the side, so many different way.

i was debating whether to get this or the EVO a while ago, the price difference was 7.43 (Directcanada 22.57 vs NCIX 29.99). eventually opted for the EVO because it keeps the processor cooler 9 degrees celsius lower at load. nonetheless, this is a great deal if you are looking for the hyper version.

Just beware that the model numbers at NCIX ( RR-B10-212P-G1) and ME (RR-B10-212P-GP) are different. I was able to PM once at ME but they had to talk to the manager and he said he was making a one time exception so, YMMV.

The cheapest part you can get to make your computer faster. (To get a good CPU Cooler and Overclock)

That's weird... thanks for pointing that out.

You know those two are actually the exact same cooler right?

You should show people what the kit actually comes with.... [IMG]http://img.ncix.com/images/41337_1.jpg[/IMG]

By the time you buy the 2 fans shown, mounting kit etc you'll be better off getting a water kit for $45 on sale. The hyper 212 is one of the best value air coolers, so either run it stock or get water.

I use this to cool my 3770k (4.4ghz) and it runs very cool and very quiet. I did find the bracket a bit clunky, but I'd probably buy it again. For $20, it's a good deal.

Hyper 212 Plus?

Am I the only one who thinks they forgot to put "Platinum" and "Iridium" somewhere in the name?

They are actually slightly different. the EVO makes full contact with the cpu vs the hyper, which has gaps.

Here is the review:

http://www.maximumpc.com/article/[primary-term]/cooler_master_hyper_212_evo_review

"the Evo is a worthy successor to the 212 Plus. Five dollars for a cooler that can keep an overclocked proc 9 C cooler? We’ll take it."

On same page:

"The Evo ran just over a degree Celsius hotter than the Plus at idle, and just under a degree warmer at 100 percent CPU burn."

yeah everywhere I've ever looked the difference between the two was far from 9 degrees. More like maybe 1 or 2 at most. The EVO fixed the surface a little bit and changed the fan (which many swap out for better fans anyways). this is a good value cooler for most users. it will handle moderate overclocking and fits in most cases, i believe there are no issues with RAM clearance either.
