Cooler Master’s Hyper 212 Evo Heatsink

I really like my new Cooler Master’s Hyper 212 Evo heatsink.

This $35 heatsink is definitely a good buy. It is pretty big and supports two 120mm fans.
It keeps the i7 3770K very cool without resorting to water plumbing. Only drawback is some cases will not enclose it due to its girth.

It runs about 21-28 degrees celsius at idle. At full tilt, I have not seen it go over 60 degrees. For most use, it hovers around the mid thirties.

Here it is running 94-96% CPU load across all cores running a BluRay Handbrake to 1080p h.264 file and creating a 10GB 256 bit AES encrypted Truecrypt file container at the same time. Both are very CPU intensive.  96% load and it never went over 60 degrees.

Impressive indeed.
