We're revisiting and benchmarking the Cooler Master Hyper 212, specifically using the Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition (a more recent, but still many-years-old successor) to see how the 212 does against more modern coolers. Newer alternatives include the Deepcool AK400, Thermalright Assassin Spirit 120, and Vetroo V5. We'll also cover performance results versus the stock AMD CPU coolers, like the AMD Wraith and AMD Stealth coolers.
