Introduction

While people tend to associate high-end, stylish cases upon hearing the words "Cooler Master", most don't imminently think of their cooling segment even though that word is in the company name. Cooler Master has for years been quietly churning out quality CPU and GPU coolers whilst letting their cases take the main spotlight with the critics.

Today we are going to take a look at the Cooler Master Hyper 212 CPU cooler. While the design isn't unique, it does follow a pattern set forth by some very efficient CPU Coolers. From a distance it would be difficult to tell the 212 from our current performance leader and award winner, the Noctua NH-12P; the designs are so close.

Let's dive in and see how the Cooler Master Hyper 212 looks; and more importantly, performs.
