Cooler Master Hyper 212x just as good as 212 EVO?

    I've been hearing that the 212 EVO is the BEST CHEAP aircooling you can get..

    So I searched for it here in my country and failed..

    But then I saw the Hyper 212x and I just had to get it!

    So I got it and was wondering if it was a good buy~

    Also will adding a new fan greatly improve its performance?

    Thanks for reading and any answer will help :3

    CPU: AMD FX 6300 at stock speeds (No plan YET to overclock... probably when its already considered weak by market standards)

    Hello,

    The 212 Plus, EVO, and X are all pretty similar. The 212X is the newest version, so probably has some benefits over the previous ones, but not really by much. Sounds like a good cooler to me.

    Now adding a second fan won't really improve performance drastically. You may be looking at a couple of degrees max, and that may be at the expense of some extra noise when running another fan. Maybe not.

    Here's an article.

    Afaik the x is supposed to be a little better because it has air guides(the holes in the fins).

    You can also check Thermaltake NIC F3, a new model at low cost. I have been planning to buy this.

    The 212X is fine and use the fan it comes with. Changing the fan or adding another will not improve this cooler

    that depends two of the stock blade-master fans in push/pull will do a fair bit of thermal work

    Its a good cooler at a great price, here, its 14% less cooling than a $100+ AiO, but costs 70% less.

    adding another JHetFlo or sickeflo for better performance its the win ! with 2 fans it may become a little bit noisy, also its pretty recommended to use CoolerMaster Master Gel Maker TIM for better results, or also Arctic MX4, Hyper 212 its a well known cooler here, most members recommended it or have used in the past for customers or friends builds... if you like silence you might look for some noctua's silent performer fans.... also Thermaltake Ring 12 might surprise you with the low noise!

    i guess price could be a factor here...

    another cheap option that might impress you !
