this cooler master is 159mm tall, get the cryorig H7 which is a better cooler, and smaller at 145mm tall

I'd just like to chime in and say how horrendous the 212's installation was for me on two different machines. I wish CM would make a more user friendly system than the goofy bracket they have now.

i'd say so.. either that or the 212 evo is very popular for it's price range.

Short answer is: Yes its a good cooler for its price.

Longer answer is: Its still a respectable product, but the Cryorig H7 may be a better choice nowadays
