Hi,
Thinking of upgrading from my stock i3 3220 fan to a nicer unit.
Newegg has both Hyper 212's on sale plus mail in rebate, $20, $30 respectively.

I have an i3 3220 mounted to a ASRock Extreme4 in an Antec Nine Hundred.

Is the Evo worth the $10 more? I don't overclock.

More about : hyper 212 evo

The 212+ will be fine for the 3220.

Now, if you wanted to upgrade to an i5 K or i7 K at some point, I would recommend the 212 Evo, but otherwise, the 212+ is sufficient. Hell, even the Hyper TX3 would be fine if you never want to upgrade or overclock.

Upgrading to an i7 once prices drop towards the end of the life cycle is likely or a year or so if they fall fast. I'll get the Evo then.

Thank you.
