Hello!

It's been a few days and I have been considering two coolers (well actually the same cooler but it's two different models) and I was wondering if the Hyper 212+ (http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=8...) was worth the extra 15$ over the original Hyper 212 (http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=8... ( yes it comes with a fan)). Do they operate and overclock similarly? Will the temperatures be higher with the original?

Thanks you in advance!

212 Plus vs 212 in rise above ambient
at 85W: 10.9 vs 11.8
at 150W: 16.9 vs 19.0

And I think the Plus also supported more sockets (1156, 1366)

I'm gonna be using it with an AM3 board so do you think it's worth it?

How high are you going with your overclock? Which CPU?

I was not planing to overclock now but maybe later at say between 3.8Ghz and if the chip can 4.0Ghz and maybe only 3.7Ghz.

Edit: Sorry it's a Phenom II 955.

FrostyTech also has a chart for the AMD CPUs.

You can see the Hyper 212 Plus is a little lower than some of the other coolers but still impressive. It's still about a 3 degree difference between the two models. It's still pretty high up on the charts and that price is really good.

If you're not going for that 4Ghz OC I think you're safe with the basic CM Hyper 212.
