Product on Review: Cooler Master Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition
Manufacturer: Cooler Master
Street Price: GBP £39.99 / USD $39.99
Cooler Master launched the Hyper 212 Black Edition back in November, which we took a look at and found to be an inexpensive, basic cooler with incredible performance, the only thing it lacked was RGB lighting. Well, you’ll find yourself wanting no longer, because today we bring you our review of the Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition.
The cooler utilises the same cooling tower and mounting system, but arrives with the SF120R RGB fan, featuring RGB synchronisation with ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte and AS Rock motherboards as well an in-line RGB controller if your motherboard doesn’t support RGB lighting.
The heatsink makes use of four direct contact heatpipes to remove heat from the CPU, which is then passed into the nickel plated fin array. The same was true of the non-RGB version which we reviewed so any difference we find will be down to the change in 120mm fan more than anything else.
Let’s bolt the cooler to our Intel i3 3930K CPU and see if the SF120R fan makes any difference.
Cooler Master on The New SF120R RGB Fan:
Certified to sync with Motherboard RGB software or controlled by our controller. The wide speed range can be fine-tuned for maximum cooling performance or silent operation.
