Hello everybody.

I'm finally building my first computer in a couple of weeks, and as CPU cooler I'm planning on buying the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO.

The thing, however, is that it apparently comes in a EU version which only runs at (maximum) 1600 rpm instead of 2000 rpm, and since I'm living in Europe it's the only version available to me.

This EU version is probably more silent due to the lower rotation frequency, but I would personally choose better cooling over quietness any day.
So my question is: Will the 1600 rpm versus the 2000 rpm have a considerable effect on the cooling ability of this CPU cooler? And does anyone have any experience with the EU version?

Thanks in advance.

it shouldnt be horrible, but it will have some effect... kinda a bad example but, on my stock PHII 840 cooler, it tops out ~2500rpm on "silent" mode, which keeps it cool at the stock 3.2GHz 1.325V
but if i set it to turbo which tops @3200RPM
it keeps it below 70C
@3.8GHz @1.3V (tops at 1.4 with cpu load line calibration)

What do you plan to do with your computer if your afraid it'll max out too early?

I think you'll be fine, unless you're running some Intel 8- or 900 series at the maximum overclock you can get.

Well, nothing too special right now. It's gonna be a mid-end gaming computer, but I am just wondering if this cooler wil be sufficient if I should decide to overclock my CPU (Intel core i5-2500k) in the future?

You shouldn't have any problems overclocking but you can always buy a second fan for a push/pull setup.

^yep. It should be enough, but you have a recourse if it isn't.

All right, then I don't think I have more questions. Thanks very much for your time and support. :)

I wonder why the EU version would come with a slower fan?

The 212+ and I'm assuming the EVO as well uses a clip system to slide a 120mm fan into place. You should be able to clip any standard 120mm fan you want onto the sink itself. Or use a push pull setup.

Yep, you can always just replace it if you need to.
