How much you have to spend on a product will always be the most important aspect to buying and putting together a PC. Sometimes you need to downgrade to make ends meet.Cooler Master has graced us with their new Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition today which fits right into the budget mentality for those looking to upgrade and not break the bank.
Contents Packaging and Design
Purple on black is the classic Cooler Master identity when it comes to the packaging. We are advocates of CM products and we hope this beauty can impress us.On the side of the packaging we see the gun-metal design of both the heat pipes and radiator. Cooler Master also adds in an RGB control device for those lacking the motherboard RGB prongs.As far as fans are concerned, the Hyper 212 incorporates a single 120 mm RGB static pressure fan. Black is definitely the theme here and this fan matches the drapes perfectly. Every cooler needs to come with instructions on how to properly install and position hardware accurately. Cooler Master has also packaged up all the important parts for installation including screws, brackets and wiring. Here is a closer look at the hardware of the Hyper 212 RGB. Cpu sockets that are supported here include: Intel® LGA 2066 / 2011-v3 / 2011 / 1151 / 1150 / 1155 / 1156 / 1366
AMD® AM4 / AM3+ / AM3 / AM2+ / AM2 / FM2+ / FM2 / FM1Cooler Master’s Hyper 212’s plate is made of nickel, which is different from most coolers which use copper or a mixed alloy. On the flip side of this plate we also see a few nickel heat wings to transfer even more heat.All together the gun-metal mixed with the all black makes for a really great looking cooler. We feel like this cooler will subtly make your build professional and colorful at the same time.
