Default NEW Coolermaster TPC-812 cooler

I just saw this new cooler from coolermaster. Looks like a beefier version of the H212 with vapor chamber heat pipes. Is this out yet? Anyone tried it? Wonder how well it performs?

Not sure how they can market that as "vertical vapour chambers" when most applications will have the cooler horizontal.

According to Cooler Master, the TPC 812 can handle over 240W of heat and performs close to or better than entry-evel single-radiator watercooling kits. Pricing is said to be around the $100 mark though, which seems quite excessive.

Couldn't find any reviews on it as of yet, It would be interesting to see if it can come close to an h100.

Hmm. seems like a decent air cooler. $75 at ncix. No stock yet though. Will probably pick one up as I'm tired of h212's. I have 6 of them at home.

While I am sure it is a very good air cooler...for the same coin you can get a H60...or for 15 bucks more get a H80...either of which should easily out perform any air cooler.

YMMV but this cooler is a tad pricey.

NH-D14's outcool H80's and from what I've seen these beat out the Havik with 2 fans with only one fan, this cooler should outperform NH-D14's and H80's.
