Get the Coolermaster 212EVO and get it over with. The 212X will be a tad better(1 or 2 degrees most likely). It is not like your looking for high end cooling here.

Well, no i can't say i am looking for high end cooling it's just i want to get the best cooler at this price, and currently the retailer that i'm going to buy from has the 212EVO and CNPS10X Performa at the same price, and the 412S is around that price to. The thing is i read some reviews and some opinions on other forums and i got really confused, some were saying that CM 212EVO is better than the CNPS10X and others were saying the oposite, CNPS10X has 5 heatpipes and it's a bit larger...i don't know what to think anymore.

I could not find reviews with both tested. You can always throw a second fan on the 212

Well reviews of these coolers being compared are indeed very hard to find, the ones that i've read i found by searching for other cpu coolers and they were just in the comparison charts too. The only review i've just found comparing all of them is this. And since everyone says hyper 212EVO is so good, i might just go with it.
