Hi!

 

I am new to this forum and have been searching on the web if coolermaster was planning on releasing something to make the Hyper EVO 212 compatible with the upcoming am4 board. Since i have not found anything solid, i thought to ask here first. 

 

Thanks :)

Actually I've just read that the mounting holes are further apart, so a new backplate will be required, at the very least.

So here's the latest info I've found. The mounting hole distances are definitely not compatible with the backplate as shown in the diagram drawn by me (Paint FTW), however the scissor mount should still fit as AM4 hole diagonal distance seems to be within the tolerance of the adjustable linear holes as their range are between 100mm and 117mm and thus 104mm fits well within that.

Ignore this second picture. I just don't know how to remove it from the post!

Hi all,

 

The Hyper 212 EVO will support socket AM4  :) 

There will be an upgrade kit for the Hyper 212 EVO in the near future.

 

We unfortunately do not have an exact date yet when these kits will be available. 

Info will come a.s.a.p. 

 

Let me know when you have any other question.

Hello,

 

Just came across this information:

 

http://www.eteknix.com/cooler-master-announces-amd-ryzen-am4-compatibility-list/

 

2 Questions:

 

1. Is this taken from any oficial Cooler Master source? I cannot find it in the Cooler Master news section.

 

2. If is official how do we know if our version of the 212 EVO will be compatible or not?

 

Update, Just found the official press release: 

 

http://www.coolermaster.com/company/press-release-M1701190001f278-20170119.html?page=1
