Cooler Master 212 EVO vs 212 Plus?

I'm getting ready to do a new build using the i5-3570K, and am going to be getting an after market cooler. I was wondering if there is a preference between the 212 EVO or 212 PLUS by Cooler Master as they seem to share most of the same specs and price points. One thing I wasn't able to locate was the Db range on the Plus..is it higher or comparable to the EVO?

Thanks for any suggestions!

  1. The plus is the more performance orientated one and the evo is meant for silencer operation. It is a nice cooler but really good cooling is what you want, rather get something more expensive if you are able

    For the same price EVO is the better cooler but they are similar in noise and I selected 212+ for $5 savings when buying. Did not need that extra 1-2°C the EVO provides. http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Cooler-Master-Hyper-212-EVO-CPU-Cooler-Review/1407/8
