My System Specs

Default Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus AMD Installation & Clearance

Since the release of HWCís review of Coolermasterís new Hyper 212 Plus HDT cooler weíve had quite a few folks inquire about its performance on AMDís AM2/AM3 platform. I figured that since Iíd already ordered one to try out on my MSI 790FX-GD70, Iíd take some pics of the process and put them up along with some comparison temps. (Iíll post up a chart in the review thread once Iíve got all of the #s in). This is not an official HWC review (the quality of the pics will attest to thatÖ :) ), itís just my own personal mini-project that I hope will be useful to the folks who were looking for more information on this cooler.

As a bit of background for those of you who are used to seeing me running nothing but WCíd Intel rigs, and who might be wondering where Iím going with this new buildÖ

I cut my OC teeth on S754 AMD procs with a MSI NF3 K8N Neo Platinum motherboard, and decided that Iíd give them a shot again once the Phenom II AM3 platform started to look promising. Iíd already ordered my gear when the review for the Hyper 212 Plus came out, and as it happens, my first quality air cooler was CMís Hyper 6+ on that very motherboard so I couldnít resist the urge to complete the cycle and give this new cooler a try for my return to AMD.

Thatís probably just about enough about meÖ letís get on to the pics.
