OVERCLOCKER MUST BUY!!!!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heat Pipes (RR-B10-212P-G1) (Personal Computers)
I stumbled upon this item on accident. I was originally looking at the OCZ Vendetta II but decided to pick this up instead because it was $7 cheaper, excellent online reviews, and future-proof ability. Installation was a hastle because once more I had to remove motherboard from the CoolerMaster 690, but I enjoy the peace of mind with a well mounted hefty heatsink vs the push pins used by other heatsinks of the same proportions.
I have yet to take advantege of using dual 120mm fans, the factory fan seems to be suffice to keep my 3.75Ghz 1.36vcore e5200 consistant at 52C 24hrs on prime95. I cannot distinguish between the noise of this and the three other stock fans in my case except for my XFX9800GT's factory fan. I will recommend this to any enthusiast and even lable the product a "must have". I am looking forward to mounting this on a future planned socket 1366 or 1156. Have a good day.

Next time cut a square hole in the mounting backplate of the case behind the motherboard with tin snips before installing the motherboard for the first time, and you won't ever have to take out the motherboard again, thats what I did :-)
