from completed build The slightly Mad Hatter (with more updates!)
At the time of purchase, this cooler was offered with a free AM4 adapter. It's currently a placeholder while I wait for AM4 adapters for a Cryorig H7 and Corsair H80i V2. Because of the R7 1700's performance potential under an air cooler, the system may stay air cooled until a full custom loop will be done.
Although it may no longer be the best budget cooler in the market, it still lives up to its name. I managed to overclock this particular R7 1700 to 3.9ghz at just over 1.38v. But that was pushing the 212 Evo to 72c max temperature during stability testing. Dropping it to 3.8ghz at 1.325v stabilizes load temperatures at 65c.

First time using this cooler. My son and I hindered it's cooling by painting it, but it's on a locked cpu. Had to polish the block side a little. It looks so rough outbox the box.

Really got the job done for me. Definitely a contender in the budget air cooler space, and a great fit for the 6300.

Little bit of a pain to install, but it's cheap, runs quiet, and looks nice

Keeps it cool, what can I say. No complaints at all so far.

Due to how close the CPUs sit on the Asus motherboard, I could only find one CPU air cooler that would get the job done, and the Hyper 212 EVO is one of the best budget air coolers on the market, so why go with anything else.

Great air cooler for your CPU, definitely buy it over the stock cooler if you want to go air.
