COOLER MASTER HYPER 212 EVO INTRODUCTION
It seems like there has always been a Hyper. I don't know exactly when Cooler Master unleashed their first Hyper CPU cooler, but I do know that it was early on in my PC enthusiast days and I wanted one badly. Unfortunately, with only a very lame store-bought mini-tower and Celeron processor, I didn't have the need, space or money for a Hyper. Cooler Master, along with their Hyper line of coolers has grown up along with the PC aftermarket and with top shelf offerings in the chassis and cooling departments, they've built quite a reputation.
The good folks at Cooler Master have sent an example of their latest Hyper, the 212 EVO for evaluation here in the Tweaknews lab, and I'm excited to see how it performs. As the name suggests, this cooler is the next step in the evolution of the wildly popular 212 series. Unfortunately, I never got the opportunity to review the original so a direct comparison won't be possible, but I've used a few Hyper models and the Evo has some big shoes to fill. Let's see how it stacks up.
