Re: [My Review] Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO Heat Pipe
I have three Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus HSF units which are not appreciably different from the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. I think the only difference is the fan and native LGA2011 support for the EVO version. Ive probably spent something like ~$20 for each unit and never had a fan failure with the oldest unit being several years old.
I think the LGA2011 kit for the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus cost something like ~$3 to ~$5 USD and the assembly does a fairly good job cooling my Intel Core i7 3930K CPU.
For what its worth, I also have four Antec 300 cases. Some versions of the Antec 300
have an opening in the motherboard tray to allow for bolt-through HSF installation / removal.

That sure is a handy "feature" on cases. Wish it were a ATX standard for ALL
cases to have it. Makes installing after market cooler brackets & hardware SO

The stock fan on the Hyper 212 EVO is rated for 40,000 hours; >1666 days. I'm only getting ~90. I went with the recommendation by koitsu
. I ordered the Noctua NF-F12 PWM rated at 150,000 hours. Cooler Master is sending yet another stock fan that I'll just stick in the junk drawer as a back up.
My Antec 300 does have an opening for HSF brackets, but it's too small to be of any use. I have to pull the board.--

Its nice to have, except when your case was derp'd in construction and the cut out is in the wrong place and unusable.
