Conclusion:

The Cooler Master Hyper N620 lived up to my expectations. It is solidly built, engineered well, and performs well. The heatsink works on a variety of mounting types, even back to socket 754, which I was surprised about. The Hyper N620's base is slightly concave, as I pointed out the "pinch" on my nose while looking at my reflection in the otherwise mirrored finish base. I did check with a straight edge up against a light, and it was clear that there was a slight concavity. Not much, but it was there. Also, the heat pipes weren't flush on the sides of the base and had some unknown compound to fill the cracks. If the base was completely square and the heat pipes were more snugly fit into the base, I'm sure that a few extra degrees could have been squeezed out of this one. While nearly polished to a mirror finish, more still could have been done to the base as well as the heat pipe contact with it.  I believe that Cooler Master would have an excellent cooler if a little more attention was paid to these areas. Nonetheless, this cooler can be had for about $50 and the price to performance ratio is very reasonable.

 

Pros:

  • Attractive looks with LED fan
  • Six heat pipes
  • Mirrored-finish base
  • Two 120mm fans are included
  • Wide range of CPUs supported

 

Cons:

  • Base isn't completely flat, it's slightly concave
  • Heat pipes are not completely flush and snug with base, at least on the edges
  • Tight fit for mid tower cases
