Does anyone know where I can find the model of a Cooler Master CPU cooler?

I was given an older computer from work that has some missing parts. One of the parts it wasn't missing was what looks to be a pretty beefy CPU cooler from Cooler Master it looks like this one: Hyper 212 EVO

but I can't actually tell if it is or not. I'm going to be overclocking a 5820K and won't be water cooling so I'd like to make sure my cooler can handle it.

You could post a few pictures. One way to tell is the number and shape of the heat pipes.

I'm not sure I know how to do that here. I can't find an upload option. Do I have to link to imgur or some other site or something?

Imgur is the best way I can think of

If the base of the cooler has the heatpipes all melded together, it's a 212 EVO. If the pipes are separated a bit, it's the 212 Plus.

I'm going to have to say EVO then. Also the pipes that stick out the top are the same size on mine but look different on the Plus.

Pretty sure that's a 212.
