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

The Hyper 212 Evo has a simple and clean design, with an aluminum tower and a single 120mm fan. It's black and silver, so it matches most computer setups. It doesn't have fancy lights like some other coolers, but it still looks professional and cool. Compared to other coolers, this cooler has a lighter feel in both the radiator and fan, giving in a cheaper feel.

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

This cooler works with many different Intel and AMD sockets. This cooler proved to be rather difficult to install compared to the other coolers tested. there are many parts that don't look like their picture within the instructions. Some parts not even within the directions but look like parts that are used, which adds confusion. Given the install type, I would suspect that there is a high chance to damage your motherboard given the setup and for the hold not to be secure. The mount that connects to the cooler isn't even bolted on and it can feel like a puzzle to get it on the cooler. Overall, this has proven to be one of the most difficult installations.

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

This cooler has four heat pipes that touch the CPU directly and a 120mm fan that helps take away the heat. This keeps your CPU from getting too hot when you're doing a lot of work on your computer or playing games. It might not be the best choice for extreme overclocking, but it's good enough for most people.

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

Unfortunately, the Hyper 212 EVO 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

The Hyper 212 Evo cooler, compatible with various Intel and AMD sockets, has a simple and clean design with an aluminum tower and a single 120mm fan, but its installation can be challenging and potentially damaging to the motherboard. Although it lacks fancy lights and has a cheaper feel, it performs well for most users with its four heat pipes and a 120mm fan that keeps the CPU cool during heavy workloads or gaming. However, it is louder than most other coolers, which may be a concern for those seeking a quiet workspace.
