Which Is Better Since I Can Get The EVO For $29.99 And The 520 For $28.99 With $4.99 Shipping

The 212+ and EVO are better CPU coolers. The N520 is an older design, and both the 212+ and EVO use direct heat contact pipes.

The 212+ and EVO are bigger, which will allow for more surface area, and the fans have a higher CFM and static pressure. And if you want to change the fans, you won't be able to do that on a N520.

Basically, the N520 is an older design, and the 212+ or EVO should outperform it.

I don't know how much of a difference it will make in the long run, as it doesn't seem like the N520 is a BAD cooler. If it were me, I would go with the EVO.

Actually the Hyper 212 EVO is almost the same as Hyper 212+ except for supporting socket LGA 2011.
This shows the difference between 212+ and N520, clearly the 212+ is better


If you don't have socket LGA 2011 based MOBO, get the 212+ it's the best over many generations.

212+/evo are almost the same cooler, the evos fan does have a bit higher CFM and it is a "little" loud on max setting.

as for your initial question, yeah get the evo.
