  • Excerpt: For those who can remember the original GeminII S, you will see where this new submission gets most of its dominant traits and features. For those who don't remember it so well, or not at all, let me summarize it for you. The GeminII S was a small footprint cooler with the use of a 120mm fan blowing down at the motherboard.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus and Hyper TX3 CPU Coolers Review

  • Summary: Cooler Master cut a slice of the bottom of their Hyper 212 and TX2, making them direct-heatpipe-touch models. We put them through their paces on an overclocked Core i7 platform. Can these budgetfriendly cooling solutions offer a good alternative to Intel's stock cooler? How do they compare to high end, 788 gram, heatsinks? Read on to find out!

  • Summary: The X'Mas edition of the Titan Fenrir looks like a formidable CPU cooler with a morbid red and black paint job, shiny stock fan, and fat direct-touch heatpipes, but its bark is much bigger than its bite. It has a decent sounding fan that undervolts well, but its performance is somewhat lacking compared to the competition. Its biggest problem seems to be a mounting system that doesn't apply enough pressure.
  • Pros: Good performance, Stock fan has above average acoustics, Good performance, Versatile, secure mounting system, Relatively small size, Hardware for second fan included, Very low price
  • Cons: Questionable mounting system, Blows upward on AMD motherboards, no LGA1156 backplate, Stock fan has poor acoustics

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus

OverClock Intelligence Agency

  • Summary: As we just saw, the Cooler Master 212 Plus provides good performance for the price. While it is certainly not the most powerful cooler out there, at just $35 USD, it holds its own on the market. Not only does the Hyper 212 Plus perform well, but its performance is dramatically improved by the cheap (or free) upgrade that is an additional fan. From a usage standpoint, the Hyper 212 Plus has some good aspects and some not-so-good ones.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus CPU Cooler Review

Hardware Secrets
30 March 2010
  • Summary: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus is a good cooler with reasonable performance. It has a good construction quality and its fan is strong and quiet. It, however, does not reach the performance level shown by top-shelf coolers, probably because of its relatively small heatsink. Other weak point is the installation, which is a little complicated. Its looks is average; it is pretty but does not draw attention like more sofisticated models.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus and Hyper TX3

  • Summary: Although the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus launched with a retail value of $40 US, that appears to have now dropped to just $30 US as evident at several major online retailers. At this price the Hyper 212 Plus is incredible value and hands down the best value CPU cooler we have ever reviewed.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus

  • Summary: We’ve seen a spate of top-performing air coolers in the past few months, as nearly every manufacturer hops on the skyscraper-design bandwagon, and Cooler Master’s entry is right up there with the best we’ve tested. And at $30 from Cooler Master’s online store, it’s dirt cheap. For that price, you really can’t go wrong with this cooler.
  • Pros: Dirt cheap; effective cooling.
  • Cons: Can bump up against north-bridge chip cooler.

  • Excerpt: I'm sure at this point most of you have seen or heard of the Hyper 21 from Cooler Master. This was one of the few, at the time, to offer a gap in the middle of the fin sets. I was able to test that cooler myself, but it was prior to my time with TweakTown, but I still remember what the 212 had to offer. To me the Hyper 212 was a good design, and very efficient for the lack of total surface area with all the missing middle bits of the fins.

  • Summary: In this review Frostytech will be testing Coolermaster's Hyper 212 Plus tower heatsink - an exposed heatpipe base cooler that comes ready out of the box for socket 1156 Intel 'Lynnfield' P55 motherboards. Naturally, it supports Intel socket 775/1366/1156 and AMD 939/AM2/AM3 processors.

Cooler Master Hyper 212+

  • Conclusion: The Hyper 212+ CPU cooler performed quite well. Not staggering performance like we have seen with other CPU cooler offerings, but the other offerings run in the 60USD range versus this CPU cooler having a price point of around 30 USD. This CPU cooler fits perfect for those who need a better CPU cooler, but cannot afford the much more expensive CPU coolers out there, or for those who want a quiet CPU cooler for their HTPC computers.
