I noticed that there isn't enough love for the Hyper T4 CPU Cooler, so I wanted to share my story about mine.
I finally bit the bullet and built my own gaming PC after many many many years of lurking from a distance, afraid to get my hands dirty. In the process of researching CPU air coolers, every one kept trumpeting the EVO 212, saying "It's the best!". You can guess my frustrations when I learned that an EVO 212 wouldn't fit in my case! Every cooler people recomended me was either too big or too expensive, and this being a first build I didn't want to break the bank on my first try and fail.
Which leads me to the greatest discovery in my build.....The Cooler Master Hyper T4. Yes, the cooler that no one is talking about, BUT SHOULD! I installed this cooler on my AMD FX-8350 Black Edition, and I am totally impressed with its performance! I have run Prime95 for 24hrs on my rig and the HYPER T4 never let my CPU get above 37c....YES! 37c! My Idle temps are around 13c! The fan on the T4 is darn near silent, EVEN AT FULL SPEED! I am really happy to have found a CPU cooler than not only cools amazingly well, but also doesn't destroy the pocket book. It is very well made and very easy to assemble and attach to the motherboard.
So in closing, if you are looking for a CPU cooler and a Evo 212 wont fit, defenitly get a Hyper T4.....trust me, you'll love it!
Thanks for making such good equipment Cooler Master, you've got a loyal customer from now on in me!
(P.S Are there supposed to be Cooler Master stickers in the box with the Hyper T4? There were none in mine and I wanted to proudly display it on my case to let every one know who's keeping me cool)
