Cooler Master Hyper Z600 Review

Excerpt: Cooler Master Hyper Z600 CPU Cooler The criteria used to select a CPU cooler varies from person to person. Some are looking for something silent, some are looking for the ultimate in cooling to aid in their overclocking endeavors, and some are looking for the balance point between those two extremes.
Summary: As you can see the Cooler Master Hyper does a fantastic job of cooling our processor, I should note that for some reason the OCCT software did no recognize that fact that the processor was overclocked to 2.8 GHz, instead it just registered it as being at default speed. So let's take a look at the pros and cons of the Hyper and see what we end up with.
Conclusion: The Cooler Master Hyper Z600 is a CPU cooler with very good cooling abilities, it’s very well well made, with an interesting design. The fact that you can mount an additional fan or even run with no fans should help it appeal to most every type of use out there. The HyperZ600 is a very large and heavy cooler, so it most likely will not fit in all cases and configurations, you’ll need to make sure that it will fit in your case.
Conclusion: The last time we had a look at a high-end CPU cooler from Cooler Master, the GeminII, we were very much impressed by what we had to offer, and once again we've found plenty to get excited about with the Hyper Z600. Yes, it's huge (time to break out the tape measure before you consider trying to buy and fit one), yes, it's heavy and yes, it starts to get expensive once you consider the additional cost of a couple of good quality 120mm fans, but boy does it do an...
Summary: The Coolermaster Hyper Z600 Black Label heatsink is part of a special Limited Edition kit, comprised of all black versions of the quiet Cooler Master Cosmos RC 1000 case, Real Power 850W power supply and Hyper Z600 heatsink.
Conclusion: For the first item in our list the Cooler Master Hyper Z600 falls a little short of what we would expect. The instructions are clear however the install itself is awkward as we have to remove the motherboard from our case and then balance it on the CPU block whilst fitting some nuts. Luckily installation and removal of fans is very simple, so once the initial install is complete the cooler is easy to maintain. Weight is also an issue with the Z600.
Excerpt: Cooler Master has a real winner in their new Hyper Z600R CPU cooler. Whether used actively, with the included 120mm blue LED fan, or passively you'll get top-notch performance and beautiful aesthetics. The X-shaped Hyper with its decorative top cover makes quite an impression and its large size and six heatpipes seem to provide the one-two punch that beats down high CPU temperatures.

Summary: The Cooler Master Hyper Z600 looks very impressive, but it does not take the heavyweight heatsink crown — at least not for cooling performance with a low speed fan. It's tall and has plenty of surface area, but its shape makes it challenging for a low-speed fan. That said, it still performs extremely well, more or less matching the Scythe Ninja Copper .
Pros: Great performance, Dual-fan ready, Very secure mounting
Summary: I have to congratulate Coolermaster for producing a passive CPU cooler that not only offers very good cooling performance, but also the fact that it can be used for overclocking when you install additional fans. Most passive coolers on the market are very good when the CPU is at default voltage. However, when you increase the voltages during overclocking ... then it's a completely different story. Temperatures usually rocket, and this is where a fan is required.
Pros: + Very good cooling performance for a PASSIVE cooler, + Unique "X" shape design, + Additional brackets for optional 120mm fans, + Intel and AMD compatible, + Totally silent (no fans)
