Design and Aesthetics:

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:

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:

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:

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.


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.
