Cooler Master, an industry leading chassis, thermal solution, peripheral, and accessory manufacturer updates its Hyper 412S cooler with two slim fans. This significantly increases performance and allows usage of memory on both sides, while keeping the advantages of the previous model. The Hyper 412 Slim is best suited for LGA 2011 systems due to its compact size. The Hyper 412 Slim is another of Cooler Master’s CPU coolers using the Continuous Direct Contact technology. This technology allows the heatpipes to directly touch all of the CPU’s hottest zones in order to reach the cooling performance in the places it matters most. Dual slim fans The advantage of using dual fans for this cooler is a big increase in performance, something overclockers who bench on air certainly will appreciate. Another feature this adds is that the slim fans allow for usage of memory on both sides and keeping them properly cooled. Both fans can be attached to the cooler through a fan mount with quick-snap brackets. This method is much more time efficient than other solutions, to make sure that changing, adding or the cleaning of fans takes as little time as possible. Availability The Hyper 412 Slim will be available in stores around the beginning of June for a recommended end user price of €39,95(included 19% VAT). Cooler Master also introduces three new thermal compound pastes If you install a new CPU cooler, you will also need some thermal compound paste. For this reason, Cooler Master now launches three different thermal compound pastes: The IC Essential E1, IC Essential E2 and the IC Value V1. The main differences between these pastes can be found in the color and thermal conductivity. The color for IC Value V1 is white and has the lowest conductivity of the three, where the IC Essential E1 is gray and placed in the middle. The IC Essential E2 is gold colored which makes it the superior one of the three. They will all be available beginning of June as well in a specialized hardware store near you.
