His case has a static red LED fan and red hightlights, so we set AURA to do “Breathing” with red to match everything up. The new revision of the Hyper 212 Black Edition keeps tradition alive using the same basic model that you would find on the original Hyper 212 CPU cooler. The cooler comes with the new SF120R fan pre-mounted, and the overall look is very sleek with the black nickel finish and black plastic fan brackets and frame. On to the fan frame, we get RGB diffuser rings on both sides, as well as rubber dampeners on all four corners of the fan frame to help reduce unwanted vibrations.
Our components represent so many different personalities because PC enthusiasts don’t fit into just one mold. The fan mounts used to attach the fan to the heatsink are another difference between the two coolers.
The bracket for the Black Edition assembles quickly using the appropriate screws and plastic end-caps, and bolts into place with a little less trouble than the previous Hyper 212 EVO. delta was achieved in a cold room where the actual package temp reached 98 ºC during the load test (! I’ve also got an XFX RX 590 Fatboy graphics card all sitting on an MSI b450 Tomahawk motherboard andthe case of choice is the Phanteks P300. There are several actions that could trigger this block including submitting a certain word or phrase, a SQL command or malformed data. It is wide enough that it does shroud the RAM or power diodes on my board but is raised enough that it still fits (on my motherboard).
When it comes to single-tower coolers, the Cooler Master Hyper 212 range is probably among the best-known and best-selling coolers to ever be released. The primary heat exchanger features 4 embedded copper heat pipes (Ø6mm) in flat array, and includes additional aluminium fins with lateral grooves upon the plate to further augment thermal conductivity. Overall, it’s REALLY difficult for me to find anything negative to say about the new Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Edition coolers.
I know a lot of you guys may be wondering why I decided to go with a 2600X versus a 2600 and the simple answer to that is that the 2600X has a 95 watt TDP rating compared to the 65 watt TDP rating on the 2600 so it actually pushes the limits on these coolers when it comes to performance.
The reverse side of the fan reveals a few more details such as the part number (A12025-20RB-4BP-F1) as well as it’s voltage and current ratings. The Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Edition CPU cooler with the Silencio fan comes packaged in a cardboard box featuring Cooler Master’s traditional color scheme of black and purple. There is also a PWM fan splitter cable for adding another fan, as well as the Molex power adapter for the optional handheld RGB controller. So we’re talking around 37 degrees Celsius idle and 90 degrees Celsius under load which is still hot, but remember the fan speed was set to about 1,400 rpm.
This new version lives true to the Hyper 212 name featuring the same quad heat-pipe tower design and direct-contact heat-pipes. This was likely due to the additional thermal overhead from using a better CPU cooler, where the CPU was able to run at higher boost clocks for a longer period of time as a result. Even at maximum levels, the fan was almost silent, and could not be heard at all with the case side panel closed. First launched back in 2007 as an air cooler targeted at AMD's Athlon 64 CPUs on platforms such as Socket 939 and AM2, as well as Intel's Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad offerings built on the LGA775 socket, the DIY PC industry has since witnessed countless iterations of the Hyper 212, as Cooler Master refreshed the line-up for successive generations of CPUs that have come and gone over the past few years.
