Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus Review



For testing I go the usual route of using Prime95 v25.9 to achieve fullest load possible. I do that in conjunction with RealTemp v3.00 to get temps at both idle and load. For testing with Prime 95, I used blend to stress everything and let it run for a good hour to get a stable temp. For idle I just let the computer run for a half hour to get a stable temperature. For testing I used the same temperature environment to maintain the same results throughout so I could include other data. I am comparing the Hyper 212 Plus to the Kingwin XT-1264 and ThermalRight TRUE (in both single and dual fan config).


Testing Setup:

Comparison Heatsink:

  • ThermalRight Ultra Extreme 120
  • Kingwin XT-1264





Lower Temperatures = Better



I had expected a bit better from the Hyper 212 Plus, although it did beat out the XT-1264 overclocked, it lost totally in all three other categories. However, the degree of variance wasn't much more than 1-3C between the competition. The real test comes under load. Perhaps if the heatsink had come with another fan to test with in dual configuration it might have done better, but I can only take the product as is. However, it is good that they still provide a second set of clips for another fan so if you're up for buying another fan, it is quite capable of taking another one.
