Design and Aesthetics:

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.

Freezer 34 eSports

The Arctic Freezer 34 eSports cooler features a cool and modern design, with bright colors that make it stand out in any computer setup. Its design ensures good airflow, which helps it effectively keep your computer cool. There are two versions of this cooler: one with two fans and the one we're discussing here, which has just one fan. Despite having a smaller part that connects to the CPU compared to other coolers, it still performs exceptionally well. It can compete with other fancy coolers like the Scythe Mugen 5 Rev.B, Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 4, and the Hyper 212.

Install Notes:

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.

Freezer 34 eSports

The installation process of the Freezer 34 eSports cooler is somewhat complex yet manageable, thanks to its user-friendly mounting system that is compatible with a variety of Intel and AMD sockets. It utilizes the default AMD backplate, secured with four independent screws, which then connect to the cooler mounting system. However, due to the four independent connection points, achieving a secure connection with all screws can be challenging compared to other systems that only have two. Furthermore, the cooler features a distinctive fan mounting system that attaches directly to the unit. While innovative, the placement of the fans can prove challenging, as the mounting system may detach from the cooler during fan installation. Despite these complexities, detailed instructions are provided, ensuring a smooth installation process for both first-time builders and experienced enthusiasts.
