After taking a look at the Cooler Master Hyper 212 and Sphere CPU coolers, I am back to finish up the trifecta by putting the Hyper TX2 through our TECC system. The two previous coolers both suffered from Cooler Master's aging mounting system that requires you to remove the motherboard for all installations. On the TX2, a cooler costing half that of the previous two tested, surprisingly you do not have to remove the motherboard and mounting goes much easier.
The ability to mount an aftermarket heatsink easily is only one part of the equation. The Sphere suffered from poor cooling performance and a rather loud fan while the Hyper 212 was just an average cooler for its price. On the surface, the TX2 does not show much promise either, but that is what we are here to find out.
Let's dig in and see how the lowest priced cooler from the Cooler Master line-up performs against our previously tested heatsinks.
