CoolerMaster Hyper212 CPU Cooler

The CoolerMaster Hyper212 is a new heatpipe-based CPU cooler that's compatible with virtually all current Intel and AMD motherboards. It's designed around four heatpipes radiating from a copper base up to a large block of aluminium fins.

What's unique about the Hyper212 is the fact that it's designed to accept two fans for improved performance. The second fan is optional, of course, but is recommended for optimal performance.

Its key features include :

  • Universal design for Intel Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Extreme, Core 2 Duo and AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core, AMD Athlon 64 FX.
  • Fluid Mechanics Cooling Solution
    - Special fan bracket design provides dual fan cooling solution for twice the airflow
    - Dual heatsink design which maximizes the dissipation surface
  • Superior Cooling Performance
    - Mirror-finish copper base allows for 100% contact between CPU and cooler
    - 4 heatpipes for optimal heat transmission.
    - Sickle-bladed fan produces huge airflow with lower noise levels.
  • Best airflow design that exhausts hot air from inside of chassis
  • Silent operation at only 19 dBA.

Our Review System

Tech ARP is committed to developing new ways to improve your experience with us. As part of our continuous efforts to improve the value of our reviews to you, we are implementing a multi-tier review system.

This review system is designed to allow you to quickly receive information on the latest hardware or software. This new system also allows you to quickly get the gist of the review without reading through it. This can be very useful, especially in situations where you need to make a quick purchase decision.

In this new system, we start with a Product Overview whenever a company sends us a press release about their latest product. We shift through extraneous PR-talk to create a straightforward summary of the product's features as well as specifications. This allows you to quickly find out all the pertinent details about the product, without reading through official press releases.

When we receive the product for review, we will quickly take photos of it and create a Pictorial Review. The purpose of a pictorial review is to allow you, the reader, to quickly examine the product visually. It may help you make better purchase decisions, especially if you cannot wait for the full review.

After thorough testing, we will post a Comprehensive Review of the product. This adds on to the pictorial review with comprehensive test results and our final conclusion on the product.

But no matter whether you are reading a Pictorial Review or a Comprehensive Review, you can always read the summary of the review as well as examine the product's specifications right on the first page. In all our new reviews, we will maintain the first page as a Product Overview page. If the product is listed in PriceGrabber, you can also check out the lowest price online.

We hope this new review system will make your experience a lot more enjoyable and informative!
