    As in usually recommended, high value, cheap (it was £25 I think), quiet and does a helluva job.

    (Yes other than the actual new Hyper Evo 212 haha.)

    I know 212 has a lone AM4 bracket / brace upgrade, but good luck trying to find one.

    I went a few pound more for the 120mm Pure Rock, as it's easier to replace when the fan starts being noisy.

    For the same price on Scan it was a choice between that or the Hyper 212 Evo. I had the 212 last time and installing it was annoying as hell, and its fan started getting noisy eventually, so not exactly comparable to a be quiet fan.

    Unless they've changed things, don't expect the bequiet to be less fiddly to fit ! I think you made the right choice going for a 120mm fan version.

    Ugh, the clips are a bizarre mechanism. There's thousands of lost souls on YouTube comment sections looking for a video showing and explaining how to put them on. But now that I know, it should be ok. 2 fiddly screws is better than 4. Despite the fan being a bit askew it's still 15 - 20C less now.

    I've installed about 20 CM 212/212 EVOs and I still get it wrong and swear a lot every time. I mean that's gotta tip you off that your design is dumb, when professional case builders still get it wrong every time.

    Or maybe I'm just an idiot, not sure.
