Actually it's the Hyper 212 EVO That's really popular now.

Ah I didn't know the EVO was that popular sorry, there are just so many people who get the 212+.

Here's the most popular air cooler for these times, the Hyper 212 +
If you get that heatsink, get some good thermal paste, like Arctic Silver 5:

Just cause its popular doesn't mean its good. Its actually kinda bad but its decent for the money it costs.

Op if you want good air cooling you really have about the options. The phantek, the noctua nh-d14 and the thermalright silver arrow. They are the best air coolers and about ten degrees cooler then the 212+
