Cooler Master Hyper 212 CPU Cooler - The Cooler

Using our trusted T.E.C.C. testing methods, we compare Cooler Master's Hyper 212 to all our previously tested coolers.

The Cooler



Head on we can see the Hyper 212's nine cooling blades.



Cooler Master has given us ample length on the 3-pin fan cable, long enough to reach even the farthest motherboard fan header.



The cooler is not as deep as you might imagine. This will help out when using tall memory or a motherboard with an extra large Northbridge Cooler.



The back of the cooler holds a bit of a surprise. As you can see the cooling fins do not go all the way across from one side of the cooler to the other. We will have to see if this effects performance compared to the Noctua and Rosewill designs that travel from one extreme to the other.



Nothing special about the other side, it is like what we looked at before.



From the top you can see the additional hardware for mounting a rear fan.



The base is like many other coolers we have looked at in recent months. There are light machine marks, but the cooler is smooth to the touch.
