Re: Hyper 212 cooling
the only real difference between the evo and plus is, as you noticed the fan looks nicer on the evo and the other difference is the brackets holding the fan to the cooler. The plus has thin metal clips which are fiddley to fit the first time u do it. The newer evo has easier plastic clips.
Also the plate that sits on the chip has smaller gaps where the cooper and silver plates meet. (if that makes sense).
They both only come with one fan, but a spare bracket so you can fit another fan to them.
(I have the plus and i built my mates pc with an Evo.)
