Still running a 212 Evo in my daughter's PC. It still does the job, no problem!

AIO's now are my go to for cooling needs. They also help mitigate the issue I've had in the past of Heatsinks resting on or not fitting near all the cooling fins of everything else (power phase, RAM).

They have come a long way.

Air Coolers though, will last the test of time. My TT Down Draft cooler is on 5 years now, still works fine.

Also still running my 212 Evo with dual push/pull Noctua fans on my 2600K which I installed back in 2011.

when I bought a used AMD Phenom II X6 just after they came out I had a air cooler on it two fans wasn't a expensive one, anyway I had that system for about 3 years then sold it to my Nephew who still is using that system with the same cooler . when I switched out systems that was way back just after the New CPUs came out after the Intel 2500k so this goes to show you how long at least in my case they last

Unless you are running on stock the 212 Evo is not a significant improvement over the stock cooler. Plus seeing as it's a Coolermaster Design their installation and mounting methods aren't user friendly and time consuming compared to a Noctua.

I have a really old OCZ 92mm Vendetta tower cooler using an AM3 clip to mount to a circle plastic bracket on a Intel Socket 1155. Easy design. Temps good too on stock i7 3770 below 60.
