As this is the first cooler I’ve had that would accommodate LGA 1156, I really had nothing to compare this cooler with. I also really don’t know how hot the i7 860 (95 watts) gets compared to the LGA 1366 i7 920 (130 watts).
Pros: – Light, small footprint, – Kept the i7 860 overclocked over 40% at under 60C, – Silent running, – Will accommodate a second fan if desired, – Innovative mounting hardware “one size fits all”, – Under $30
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.
