Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus CPU Cooler Review

Q6600 Performance Results

It seems that while the 212 PLUS' smaller 6mm heatpipes do limit its efficiency on the smaller and older 775 to a certain extent. That being said, its stock 2000RPM fan combined with a good, solid backplate does tend to ameliorate this “weakness".

As the heat was turned up, so did the performance of this cooler increase…just like we saw with the Prolimatech cooler. Will it continue to improve on the i7 testbed and even overtake the best of the best? While we have a sneaking suspicion this cooler (as most newer ones) is designed for maximum performance when on the bigger CPUs like the i7; these numbers are awfully darn good on their own and do help show the age of many more expensive coolers.
