Cooler Master Black Label Hyper Z600 CPU Cooler
14 February 2009
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.
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)
Conclusion: When I first felt the weight of this cooler my first impressions were “its too heavy!” However, after seeing the sturdy mounting kits and testing it I saw that when installed it puts hardly any extra pressure on the motherboard at all. Although not all mobos are as sturdy as those from XFX so some potential buyers should be aware of this issue before purchasing.
Pros: Well constructed, Silent when in passive mode, Great performance, Unparalleled airflow due to huge fins
Cons: Price, Weight, Size, Fans must be purchased separately
