Conclusion:

The CoolerMaster Hyper212, while smaller than many of its other high performance brethren, did preform at the top its class. At load, the CoolerMaster showed very comparable temperatures with its Tuniq counterpart. At the top of the air cooling ladder, gains are usually in the range of one to three degrees Celsius. While it may seem like a small gain, it is a gain nonetheless. Many people equate high end air cooling with high noise cooling. While this is true in many instances (higher C.F.M fans produce more noise for the most part), it is not so with the CoolerMaster Hyper 212. While the 212's two fan design might make you think that additional noise would be present, there was none that I could detect; however, this is highly dependent on what additional fans you decide to use, if any. An added benefit is that using two fans does decrease temperatures by a few degrees in most cases. It did in this review. With the CM Hyper212 also being easy to install (with its unique design in how it connects to the motherboard), and easy to modify (by adding fans), you can't really go wrong with this cooler. Another added bonus is that the cooler is only 40 dollars, which is less expensive than most of the other high performance heatsinks available today. I wouldn't be surprised if this cooler took over the "top dog" position for air cooling and was suggested to people around the world as the cooler for overclockers and enthusiasts. I know that I've found a new cooler of choice.
