Cooler Master Hyper 212 LED CPU Cooler with PWM Fan Review
An upgrade form the well-loved 212 EVO this sports an upgraded Heat Sink which improves heat dissipation. The mounting system in the 212 LED has also been tweaked to make it virtually painless to install using a snap cover for mounting.
The Hyper 212 LED comes with 4 6mm, u-shaped copper heat pipes with funnel shaped aluminium fins which pass through the baseplate making direct contact with the CPU and giving you excellent heat dissipation. The EVO had the same basic design but the LED adds the small improvement of leaving gaps between the pipes, so improving airflow.
The LED comes with a PWM type and you can add an optional extra 120mm fan for increased cooling performance. The 120mm PWM comes with anti-vibration rubber pad and a wide 600-2000 RPM range.
Just for pizazz, if you get a Hyper 212 LED, you are not only getting and upgrade for your CPU fan but also jazzing up the look of your PC as this product has 7 translucent blades with red LED lighting (you got to have a translucent case wall for this to mean anything though).
All in all, you get a good computer fan here that can tame an overclocked CPU with ease.
