More about : cooler fans admir00 October 15, 2011 9:25:46 AM yes, the improvement over a stock cooler is pretty drastic, hyper 212 has good reviews, I have a CM hyper212 EVO, and am loving it. m 0 l jsc a c 156 V Motherboard October 15, 2011 9:51:19 AM Depends. If you are not going to overclock, maybe yes and maybe no. It depends on how efficiently your case moves air through it. If you are going to overclock, yes, you need a better than stock cooler. Ther are many coolers better than the Hiper 212+, but they all cost significantly more. At around $30, you cannot beat the 212. For the price, nothing comes close. m 0 l Related resources Would these fans be good for pushing air through an air cooler - Forum New Fans / Gpu Cooler ! - Forum Looking for four blue LED fans, two for water cooler and two for case? - Forum Advice on replacing case fans needed - Cooler Master HAF XB - Forum Fans for Cooler Master HAF 912 - Forum Can't find your answer ?
