Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The HP-1216 uses 46 aluminum fins that are thicker than most, reminiscent of the fins on a Noctua tower cooler. These fins, however, are double stamped to create dimples and bumps on both sides of each individual fin in the arrangement. These fins surround five heatpipes that come into direct contact with the CPU that are aligned in two "V" shaped configurations as they pass through the fins. Once the heat has gotten into the fins from the heatpipe transfer, it's down to the fan to keep with the load the cooler is taking from the processor.
XtremeGear has equipped the HP-1216 with a clear 120mm blue LED 78.4 CFM fan that should be up to the task. XtremeGear offers a fan controller with this cooler as well. This will allow you to keep performance when needed, but will also allow you to run the cooler at near inaudible levels. The use of this controller will bring down the 2200 RPM, 78.4 CFM and the 37 dBA rating of the fan to your specific needs. The cooler is built to accept a push/pull method, but only ships with one fan included. The major plus to this cooler is that it's built ready to run on any socket from AMD AM2 and up, as well as both LGA775 and i7.
Availability is an odd thing to discuss with the HP-1216. While there are plans in the future to attempt to put the Xtreme Cooler HP-1216 on e-tailers shelves, the immediate use is strictly to stock CyberPower with an optional air cooling choice. I don't see stock being an issue while you are choosing directly from CyberPower, but I would assume they are still being manufactured in limited quantities, until it can make a name for itself. Once this happens I'm sure they will roll with it and make this cooler available to the masses.
While the cooler is made by XtremeGear, the cooler is only found at http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/ for those in the U.S. and http://www.cyberpowersystem.uk.co for those over the pond. I was told the HP-1216 will be released and ready to go into a CyberPower PC on July the 1st and has a MSRP of $29 U.S dollars. As I mentioned, the lineup that CyberPower already uses does really well to cool a processor, even under our rigorous testing, so XtremeGear has quite the task ahead of itself. If this cooler can handle itself and our testing, I think it only stands to reason; for $29, why would you choose another option?
