Hyper 212 EVO - does the side matter for the fan?

Recommended Posts

The Hyper 212 EVO that I'm using is causing a problem, in that the fan overhangs one of my memory sockets.  Can the fan be moved to the other side of the heatsink, set up to suck rather than blow, without loss of cooling efficiency?  I really need to recover that cooling socket.

Hi Dan,


Yes, you can move it to the other side. I would recommend air pushing through the aluminum fins. :)


Cheers, Pim
