Hyper 212 EVO vs Hyper N 520 Tags: CPUs Evo Last response: May 14, 2012 5:50 AM in CPUs Share melikepie a b à CPUs May 14, 2012 4:45:10 AM Which Is Better Since I Can Get The EVO For $29.99 And The 520 For $28.99 With $4.99 Shipping More about : hyper 212 evo hyper 520 hellfire24 a b à CPUs May 14, 2012 4:57:51 AM 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. Use this link to do a comparison. http://www.coolermaster.com/product_comparison.php 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. m 0 l ilysaml a b à CPUs May 14, 2012 5:15:25 AM 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. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
