Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

i am from Italy and today I wanted to buy your item for my cpu i7 4820k / LGA2011.

 

I ask to the shop and they sell only the version R1 and this version is not compatible with LGA2011.  Is it correct ?

 

 

I would like this cooler but I am afraid to buy a not compatible item.

 

 

thank you for your help

 

 

ps: i am confused because:

Hi Sereupin & Saipan,

 

We are sorry for the inconvenience but since we lately changed our websites in Europe some mistakes happen due the transfer.

In Europe we carry the Hyper 212EVO with the item code : RR-212E-16PK-R1

 

It has full Socket LGA 2011/ 2011-3 support and its main difference is that the fan has been set at 1600RPM  instead of the global version (RR-212E-20PK-R2) that has been set at 2000RPM.

 

Hopes this answers your questions.

Hi, first of all thank you very much for your help and informations.

I really appreciate that.

 

Unfortunately "it's late" for that infos because I already found the solution: I asked to many many online sellers and believe me, they all didn't know what to answer to me because, for what I have understood till now, they used the initial description of the product when it came out on the market and in this period probably the socket lga2011 and 2011-v3 wasn't still on the market, so it was impossible to say that it was compatible.

It has been interesting to see the description of the product to be not excat and updated, I can't image how many people in the last 1/2 years (the time that the socket LGA2011 is on the market) didn't buy the evo 212 in Italy and maybe in other countries of europe just because they couldn't read the correct compatibility description..

Anyway, I called a shop near my town, i asked by telephone if it was compatible with sk lga2011 and he said that it wasn't compatible.. later, after hours of questions and researches, I called again and I repeated the question asking for to check better.. I went to the shop and asked for a package of evo 212.. it is written on the box "lga2011", inside the box there are 4 screws for adapt it on the socket. That's good! I bought it :) ..

 

I have noticed that thanks to me the same day the shop changed the official page of your item with the right complete description.. it happened to many other shops where I forced them to check about their items on sell but with old description info..

I deserved a discount for my help :D  but nothing, they didn't... ehehe

 

have a wonderful day and thank you very much again!

 

 

ps: just one question: why the difference on the RPM fan 1600 vs 2000 between usa and eu market ? for what this difference ?

Thanks for your help in fixing the shops online description. I've asked CM Italy to update their website as well.

It should be fixed soon (if not already).
