Hello and welcome to the forum :)

Have you tried emailing Zalman, they might be able to send you one in the post.

Close to Swindon, but not Swindon
Great value fan for the price:

YOUR BASKET
1 x Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo CPU Cooler (Socket Intel® Socket LGA1366/1156/1155/775/AMD Socket FM1/AM3+/AM3/AM2+/AM2) £26.99
Total : £26.99 (includes shipping : FREE).



There was also the Corsair A50 which I remember being one of the best £20-30 CPU coolers available. However it seems that it is now discontinued and unavailable at any UK retailers.

I saw one of these the other day. Can't believe how big they are!!!

212 is just a normal little cooler mate. Big singles are 140x102x162mm HR-02 and 155x53x170mm (TS140) :)

Matterhorn 138x123x158mm w/ 6x pipes £29.99
TS120 . = . 133x52x160mm w/ 4x pipes £24.98
212 EVO =. 116x51x159mm w/ 4x pipes £26.99

Are you seeing the comparisons above? The TS120 is a little bigger but cheaper and Matterhorn is twice the size with half again as many pipes (6 vs 4). That all adds up to better cooling ability..and 212 is on the bottom of the scale.. and Matterhorn & TS120 are better built too
