    I had bought a prebuilt computer with a i7 11700f and was super excited to use it. My wife asked me to render a short video for her business and after 35 seconds the cpu was reading 100c in cpu-z. I immediately went out and bought the Hyper 212, installed it and ran a longer render.....64c. It took AT LEAST 36c off the old cooler. It's worth it. Don't skimp on a power supply and keep your components cool.

    I got this CPU cooler over the Stealth Wraith that comes wirh the 5600X. Was not difficult to install and dropped my full load temp from 95 degrees to 79. RGB looks great as well. The fan doesn't stay all the way in on the bottom side, but does not come off. Not sure if normal, but kind of bothered me.

    Easy to install, looks really cool and significantly decreased my CPU temp( Ryzen 7 x2700). On Cold War I was consistently running around 80 degrees using stock AMD cooler. After installing, I'm maxing out at 65 degrees. Would definitely recommend if looking to upgrade from stock cooler.

    Definitely more quiet, but CPU wasn’t that much more noticeably cool until I purchased an extra fan for the other side. Then the temp drop was around 10degrees Celsius.

    I bought this cooler because the cooler that came with my pc was loud and hot. I can say that this cooler is definitely not only quieter, but also performs leaps and bounds better than my old one. I have attached and image of my thermals using this cooler and Thermal Take TG-7 (which you can also get at best buy) as my thermal compound. My test was running 5M based off of GTA5 with graphics mods and reshaders at 1080p Ultra/Very High settings for about 30-45 minutes. I experienced 0 thermal throttles as shown by third party software and at the peak reached 61C averaging around 50C. And this was all done on a Intel I7 boosted to 4.7GHz. Unless you are running some NASA level CPU this cooler with the proper thermal paste should do the job for you just great. If you find you need more airflow you can also get a second fan as this comes with the mounting brackets for a second fan and a fan splitter so you can run both fans off of the CPU 1 header if your motherboard doesn't have two CPU headers. Installation was honestly pretty easy. And this is coming from someone who just did this for the first time ever. When installing be careful as it is pretty easy to cut your fingers on the blades of the heatsink, but other than that is 15 minutes of work and you're done. I think this cooler will stay with me even when I build a whole new PC in a couple of years. For $40 you cant beat it. As a side note to those of you considering the non RGB version of this cooler it should be know that it moves less air through the heatsink than the RGB version. If you don't want the lights just don't plug in the RGB header as the Higher Cubic Feet per Minute of the RGB version is worth it for an extra dollar.

    Runs 8-10 degrees celsius cooler than the stock cooler on my Ryzen 5 3600x. The Wraith Spire cooler never exceeded 80celcius but I wanted to add some color and clean up the build. This runs a bit cooler and more silent, and looks much better. I got it for $30 with rewards, worth it at that price. But for $50 I don't think it would be worth it. If you plan to do heavy overclocking, then a more expensive Noctua or liquid cooler would be recommend. The benefits of overclocking didn't really seem great to me though, so I stuck with this affordable option and it serves me well.

    This cooler is a great buy for the price. If you have a standard size case then it will fit just fine. The cooling is much better than the stock amd wraith cooler on my am3 fx series 8 core. I don't overclock so I have no opinion on that. The led function is controllable by the standalone buttons it comes with or by your motherboard if that feature is available. Sure the buttons seem cheap but these things were intended to be board controlled so not many options for manual control. As far as installing it wasn't too bad. Take your time, read the directions, and everything will be just fine.

    One Of The Best For The Money...

    This has been my go to air cooler when they're in stock. The latest CPU I've put it on is an Ryzen 5 3600X. I added another fan for push-pull configuration. It looks fantastic with the black coloring and the Cooler Master logo. RGB fan that is included is pretty bright, and decent quality. Installation is not bad at all. Comes with actual controller but it's useful unless you can figure out how to route it outside of the case. Best thing to do is connect to Motherboard's 12V RGB header, or another hardware controller RGB controller. I'll be using this air cooler future builds.

    Easy to install with excellent instructions and quality materials. Able to overclock Ryzen 3600 to 4.4 and 4.3 stable during gaming with a less than decent case off Amazon. Would recommend if AIO coolers are out of the budget or doesn't make sense spending extra unless you prefer the cool aesthetic.

    Running a Ryzen 3600XT and this dropped my temps considerably. Stock cooler was 79 degrees celcius while playing cyberpunk 2077. With the coolrr it sits around 63 degrees at highest. Would reccomend for sure. It comes with one fan however it does come with hardware to take a coolermaster sf120R ARGB fan and make it connect to the cooler for a dual fan setup.

    This is best CPU Cooler I've had in a longtime.

    This works really good at cooling the CPU, it has great surface coverage, it runs quiet, and under rare conditions I only need to turn the fan up to 75%. I opted to add the second fan, it includes the optional second fan mounting brackets in the box. I'm using it to cool an AMD Ryzen 5 1600. It comes with a push button controller you plugin for the fan LED's and the LED's for the fan are multiple colors and have multiple modes. There wasn't instructions on the lighting control module settings in the box. Right now fan speed running at 30%, 1 fan on 10% and all others on 50% the temp is 26C/78F, 29C to 33C sometimes 36C is more common, it rarely ever goes higher than 41C and up to 107F or 111F under heaviest loads. Before with stock fan it was running hotter and the higher temps lasted much longer, it took a longtime to bring the temps down before. The only downside is you need to think about cable management a bit with this cooler especially if you add a second fan. I highly recommend this version of the CPU cooler, the version before this one doesn't seem as good, the mounting area coverage and mounting configuration of that version compared to this one isn't as good. The price could've been just a slightest bit lower at around $35 to $40 would have been nice.

    This cpu air cooler performs well and it definitely great value for the price and it looks nice if you put rgb fans on it But the installation process can be difficult and frustrating if you don’t read the manual correctly But if mounted properly the cooler works like a charm with no issues

    The price of this was very reasonable and I love how it comes with the color versions. You can also change the steadiness of how the colors display. As far as performance, it's keeps my CPU temperatures down. I definitely would recommend this product.

    Works great, not to hard to install and comes with the hardware to mount an additional fan. Keeps my 3600x from thermal throttling and looks good doing it.

    Took my i7-11700f from 100 Celsius to mid 70s, and installation is very simple. Bought for 45 USD at the time of writing and is unmatchable in terms of performance.

    This is a really good cpu cooler. The processor never overheats and keeps my system nice and cool. I haven’t had any issues especially when I’m playing games on max settings. The fan is sorta quiet but I don’t hear much since I’m always wearing headphones. I would definitely get this cpu cooler instead of using the stock cooler that comes with your cpu. It’s also at a reasonable price which is nice. And it has rgb which adds some color to my pc. Honestly I would recommend this to everyone looking for a cpu cooler but in a fan version.
