My System Specs

Default Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus AMD Installation & Clearance

Since the release of HWCs review of Coolermasters new Hyper 212 Plus HDT cooler weve had quite a few folks inquire about its performance on AMDs AM2/AM3 platform. I figured that since Id already ordered one to try out on my MSI 790FX-GD70, Id take some pics of the process and put them up along with some comparison temps. (Ill post up a chart in the review thread once Ive got all of the #s in). This is not an official HWC review (the quality of the pics will attest to that :) ), its 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 WCd Intel rigs, and who might be wondering where Im going with this new build

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

Thats probably just about enough about me lets get on to the pics.
