Hi I ordered the CoolerMaster Hyper 212 plus a couple days ago and what arrived today was the Hyper 212 Evo. I can't see any obvious difference but there must be one. What is the difference?

1) lower RPM fan (quieter)
2) brackets for adding a 2nd fan

Otherwise the heat-sink and mount are identical. Technically the EVO is the better unit anyways, so I would just keep it and enjoy saving that $5-10

Awesome! Does it still push the same amount of air as the Plus version?

slightly less airflow, but still pretty good. On mine I put the stock fan in the case, and then put 2 silent fans on the EVO to get the flow back with a little less noise than the stock fan.
Bench temps for my i7 2600 are 58-61*c on all 4 cores when clocked at 4.2GHz and the fans all at their lowest settings.

Can you advise what fans to put on my EVO to bump up the airflow a bit? It needs to be relatively cheap.

It will outperform the 212+ regardless of the fan speed difference.

Better base too!

Hook it all up first, you likely don't need another fan. The fans I replaced my system with are some low RPM 120mm Enermax fans found at my local microcenter:

I got them on sale for $10ea at the time. They are extremely quiet, but because of this there very low airflow to them, so you typically need to buy 2 for every 120mm fan you replace. For a normal system there is no need to get fans like these, I got them because I do audio recording from time to time, and these are quiet to begin with, and easy to filter out what little noise they do make.
