I'm building a new Haswell system with an i7-4770K and an MSI Z87-G41 PC Mate motherboard. I happen to have both a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO and a Hyper 212 Plus that I picked up on sale over the past 18 months. Does anyone know which one is better? Does anyone know if either will work on an 1150 mobo? These coolers were made before the 1150 socket came out.

All 1155 coolers fit on socket 1150, the cooler holes stayed the same

As you are going with a latest generation of cpu's I think a increase in performance should result in increased tempatures.For best results buy a corsair H40 cooler and sell the coolermaster hyper 212 evo.That should give you overclocking experience too as it is a liquid cooler.

Did you already bought that cpu+mobo ? Since you can get a much better deal if you're from the US : http://promotions.newegg.com/intel/13-2602/index.html

On topic : both of them work with LGA1150 mobos. 212 EVO came after Plus, so it's supposed to be better.

if possible change the mobo to at least a G43 for better O.C capability

The EVO is the better heatsink, wider copper heatpipes making contact with the CPU. Primarily leads to lower idle temperatures, not too much difference under load though.
LGA1155 and LGA1150 have the same mounting holes, I would think that it would be fine to use. At worst you will need a new backplate, which would be a few bucks to get from Coolermaster.

Yeah, that really is bad advice. The Hyper 212 EVO is equivalent to a H60 in performance.
The assumption that a liquid cooler is inherently better than air is the reason why Corsair even offer units below H80i performance, they thrive off people assuming liquid is better. Even the top end units like the H100i have air heatsinks that perform the same for far less, its only once your in the realm of custom water cooling will you get results that arent possible on air.

Thanks for the advice! I don't plan on overclocking much, just when I have some TV shows to encode with HandBrake, so I will go with the EVO. Since I'm fortunate enough to have a Micro Center no more than 35 minutes away, I got the i7-4770K for only $280 (cheaper than Newegg), and the motherboard was the same price as Newegg. The only problem was that the RAM selection was not that great at Micro Center, so I ordered it from Newegg. Memory compatibility has bitten me a couple of times with my last few builds, especially with Gigabyte boards, so now I just make sure that the RAM I get is listed on the mobo's compatibility sheet.

yup, getting the 212 EVO is a much better and wiser choice..:)
