My System Specs


I support HWC's review of the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus CPU heatsink.

If a CPU heatsink has a fan included in the package, I expect the review to contain readings and observations for the included fan. If the included fan does not perform as expected (possible POS), the reviewer should have the option to test the heatsink with a fan that has a known performance to the readers. For example, during OCZ Vendetta 2 review, HWC tested the OCZ fan then tested a Noctua NF-P12 fan. The Noctua reduced temps by 2 degrees.

If a fan is not included with a heatsink, I would expect a reviewer to use a fan that has been used in previous reviews; such as, the Noctua fan. If a reader wants to purchase the Megahalem and install a super quiet fan or a 80+ cfm fan on the cooler, he/she should post the results in the forums - Knowledge is Power.

If I purchased the Megahalem, I would install high cfm fans and enjoy the low temps.

In reality, the CM Hyper 212 Plus is within my budget and should be plenty with 2 fans mounted.

I appreciate having a Canadian site that I can obtain valuable information.

Thank you Hardware Canucks
