From the Cooler Master website:
Cooler Master was founded with the mission of providing the industry's best thermal solutions. Since its establishment two decades ago, the company has remained faithful to this mission, emerging as a world leader in products and services for companies dealing with devices where heat issues must be resolved.
Cooler Master is an industry leader when it comes to PC peripherals, cooling, cases, and power supplies. They have products that fit just about every need and price segment in nearly every conceivable category. That said, Cooler Master's real claim to fame has always been their wide selection of cases, like the Cosmos and HAF series that have garnered a great deal of accolades and attention from reviewers and enthusiasts alike.
In today's review, I will be taking a look at the Hyper 212X, a new rendition of the famous Hyper 212+ and its successor, the 212 EVO. The 212X features a single-tower design with a single fan and four heatpipes. Considering how similar the 212X is to the EVO, it will be interesting to figure out whether it is a solid improvement over the older EVO.
