The Hyper 212 EVO is a CPU cooler with tower heatsink, four U-shaped direct-touch heatpipes and a 120 mm fan. It is obvious by the name that this cooler is an evolution of the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus, which we tested last year. The main difference is the base of the coolers, as we will discuss later in this review.
The box is relatively small and simple, as you can see in Figure 1.
The box contents are shown in Figure 2: the cooler itself, manuals, thermal compound, and installation hardware. The cooler came with only one fan, but it comes with the hardware necessary to install a second 120 mm fan.
