An exciting new movie called “Drive” is currently playing in theaters and it has been met with mostly positive reviews for good reason. The story basically revolves around a protagonist involved in a heist gone wrong and the double-crossing criminals that are after him and his loved ones. While it is a story that has been told several times before, the approach taken by the director to tell the story is what really sets it apart from other crime-action genre movies. Often we forget that storytelling is just as important, if not more so, than the story itself. We get easily distracted by the size and grandiosity of certain crafted things that we overlook the essential, which is sometimes lost beneath all the shiny things. This is an idea that extends beyond movies and can be applied to other facets of life, for the point really is about making the most of what you have and making it work effectively.
In the world of computing, Cooler Master is a name synonymous with efficiency and has won multiple awards for products which revolutionized the way we look at cases and various cooling solutions. With their Hyper 212 Plus CPU Cooler, Cooler Master has earned the respect of critics and system builders alike, for its extremely low price and excellent performance on par with coolers that cost twice as much. Cooler Master figured out that creating a heatsink with direct contact heatpipes can cool just as efficiently as some coolers with a separate contact base and higher heatpipe count. This Continuous Direct Contact ™ design has worked very well for the CM Hyper 212 Plus and has now been improved in the CM Hyper 212 EVO.
The CM Hyper 212 EVO retails for $34.99 and is aimed at budget conscious enthusiasts. The Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO looks almost physically identical to the Hyper 212 Plus with a few subtle, but very effective, changes. With a new wide range PWM fan and an updated Continuous Direct Contact ™ surface design, the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO takes budget CPU cooling performance to another level. Thankfully, this level of performance is compatible with the entire current desktop processor lineup from Intel and AMD and is even compatible with the upcoming AMD FX-Series processors, so enthusiasts armed with the CM Hyper 212 EVO will be ready, no matter what system they choose to run and overclock.
