Summary: The Cooler Master Hyper 101 seems to be the small brother of the
. It has the same basic design, but smaller, with a smaller fan and one less heatpipe. It also costs less, which is good news for users on budget. The good news is that the Hyper 101 performs almost the same as the TX3.
Being an inexpensive, quiet and reasonably good performer, the Cooler Master Hyper 101 CPU cooler has an incredible cost/benefit ratio, thus deserving the Hardware Secrets Bronze Award.
Conclusion: Just like the TX3 – it’s a heatsink that supporting many mounts and works really well. The mount does require you to do a little work though but that’s due to the flexible nature of the heatsink. It comes at about RM 15 lower than the TX3, personally I’d recommend you to go for a TX3 over this one but if you insist on having lower cost then the 101 works fine. I love the fact that you can even use it without the fan! *Sorry, I’m not conducting a TX3 test on the i5 2500K.
Conclusion: Ultimately the Hyper 101 does what its supposed to, just about. It doesn’t really handle 100% synthetic load very well, but its unlikely to encounter this in the real world. As for overclocking, I’d definately steer clear with this one, but for £13 you can’t really go wrong. So if you want a reasonably quiet aftermarket solution then the Hyper 101 from Coolermaster isn’t a bad choice, but it won’t blow you away either.
Pros: Small and compact, Easy to install, Affordable
Summary: Der Cooler Master Hyper 101 ist gut verarbeitet und erstaunlich leistungsfähig für seinen Preis von unter 13 Euro. Obwohl nur bis 95 Watt ausgelegt, kam dieser Kühler im Lasttest auch mit einem 140-Watt-Monster zu recht, wenn auch auf Kosten der Geräuschkulisse.
