Packaging and Contents

The Hyper 212X comes in a classic CoolerMaster style box, the exterior of which shows images of the cooler inside as well as giving details and technical data.

The Cooler itself is protected by a simple plastic moulding, which should do the job but isn't nearly as environmentally friendly as the cardboard systems we've seen used.  Inside the box you'll also find a smart little carton containing accessories and mounting hardware.

Now lets remember this is a £30 cooler.  So what do we get?  Well quite a lot actually.  Not only is there's a universal mounting bracket and back-plate, but you also get a set of additional plastic fan mount clips, which are so much nicer than the cheap metal spring clips you'd usually get in a cooler at this price pint.  you also get a moulded plastic tray which contains all the bolts and screws you're going to need.

Let's take another look at that mounting hardware shall we.  Isn't it nicely laid out.  And don't go thinking this is one of those finger ripping vac pac things, it isn't, it opens up easily and can be clipped closed when finished with to keep all the other hardware safe and organised.  In all the coolers we've tested we've never seen this before, not even with Noctua, and it's fair to say we're well impressed.

Excellent review Gary! I'll be grabbing one of these for the old mans rig now, the Gigabyte cooler he has at the moment is driving me nuts with the revving it does Quote

I can't praise these coolers high enough to be honest, my 212 evo is coping nicely with my 3570k at 4.2ghz on 1.15v, it barely scratches 65 degrees in the summer with a corsair sp quiet edition fan on it.

They are, awesome coolers for the money and i recommend them all the time when people don't want to spend a lot.Quote

This is the improvement of that, and it wouldn't have mattered at all on that 3970x powerhouse, the results would be near identical.Quote

I have the 212X with the 82.9 CFM fan on my QX6800 which is a 130W TDP

at stock speeds I get 60+ degrees at load and around 40 degrees on idleQuote
