excellent reliable cooler.
Amazon product: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo CPU Cooler, 4 CDC Heatpipes, 120mm PWM Fan, Aluminum Fins for AMD Ryzen/Intel LGA1200/1151, 4 Heat Pipes (RR-212E-20PK-R2)
Did not realize this cooler was that big! You have to realize that the advertized 120mm is only the fan diameter, the actual cooler assembly reaches close to 160mm high! I had to do 2 small 1X2 inch cut outs to my lenovo M90 side cover to get proper clearance. | Instructions are precise clear and to the point. All hardware is present to do proper installation for AMD and Intel. | Really well packaged, I feel this product is worth more than what I paid for. The thermal paste supplied with it is a bit too liquid to my own taste. I am used to startech paste which is thicker and seams to have higher concentration of silver. But this is not a scientific fact, just personal impression, I could be wrong. | This cooler is really efficient! I installed it on a i7-870 in a Lenovo M90 which was constantly running in the 70-75 Celsius (158 – 167 F) range with a 30% CPU load. | After installation Temperature range under the same CPU load is now 40-45 Celsius (104-113 F) !! | Fan is as silent as the stock lenovo fan. Excelent purchase. Buy without a doubt, but ensure your computer case can accept this 120mm X 160mm assembly. | ****EDIT****** | I have been doing some transcoding and I am amazed! 80-90% CPU load for 45 minutes and temperatures kept below 63C (145 F) During the entire time. see pictures attached.
