Design and Aesthetics:

Wraith Prism

The Wraith Prism cooler, although not the best at keeping things cool and quiet, does a good job for the CPUs that it comes bundled with. It showcases a stunning design featuring customizable RGB lighting, adding a touch of personalization to your PC build. Its well-crafted, slim construction ensures compatibility with a variety of cases, including those with limited height clearance.

Hyper 212 EVO V2

The Hyper 212 EVO V2 has a unique design with its fan bracket, which sets it apart from most other coolers. While this gives it a different look, it also pushes the fan out far enough that it might interfere with the first RAM slot. This shouldn't be an issue if you're only using two RAM slots, but something to keep in mind.

As for the overall feel of the cooler, it seems a bit lighter and cheaper than other coolers of a similar size. This might not be a deal-breaker, but it's worth mentioning.

Install Notes:

Wraith Prism

Installing the Wraith Prism cooler is a straightforward process, thanks to its compatibility with AMD's mounting system. Some users may encounter minor challenges when securing the backplate, but with care and patience, most builders will find the installation hassle-free.

Hyper 212 EVO V2

It's more difficult than most to install, especially for AMD coolers. The cooler doesn't use the AMD backplate, and its own backplate isn't labeled, making it hard to figure out how to orient it based on the pictures provided. The backplate might feel loose on the motherboard at first, but it should become secure once the cooler is screwed into the mounting system. While the installation is an improvement from the EVO V1, it's still more complicated than most coolers, which can be a turn-off for beginners.

Cooling Performance:

Wraith Prism

When it comes to keeping your computer cool, the Wraith Prism cooler does a good job, especially with the CPUs it comes with. It might not be the best for super powerful processors, but for most people, it keeps things cool enough even when you're gaming or working on heavy stuff. We test it using the normal, slower setting, so it works well right when you start using it, providing a reliable and visually appealing cooling solution.

Hyper 212 EVO V2

This cooler has below-average cooling performance compared to other coolers on the market. That means it might not be the best choice if you need top-of-the-line cooling for your PC, especially if you're into gaming or heavy processing tasks.

Noise Performance:

Wraith Prism

The Wraith Prism cooler is pretty quiet compared to the basic coolers that usually come with CPUs. It has a special fan design and air flow system that keeps the noise down without making it less effective at cooling.

Hyper 212 EVO V2

Unfortunately, the Hyper 212 EVO V2 is louder than most other coolers on the market. This means that you might experience more noise while your PC is running, which could be a drawback if you're sensitive to noise or prefer a quiet workspace. If having a quiet PC setup is important to you, it's worth considering other coolers with better noise profiles.


Wraith Prism

The Wraith Prism cooler is a top contender in the market for those looking for an efficient and visually striking cooling solution. Its solid performance, customizable design, and competitive pricing make it a highly recommended choice for a wide range of PC builders.

Hyper 212 EVO V2

The Hyper 212 EVO V2 has its pros and cons. It's got a unique design, a decent noise profile, but its performance is below average, and the installation process can be challenging. It's better suited for people who feel more comfortable putting together a computer, and not the best choice for beginners. If you're looking for a cooler that's easy to install with better performance, you might want to consider other options.
