    Cooler Master rolled out its newest performance CPU cooler, the Hyper 612S. It is a large tower-type heatsink that is designed to maximize heat dissipation at lower fan speeds. It does so with a different orientation of copper heat pipes. The heat pipes pass through the base, and along the length of the aluminum fin stack, rather than its breadth. As a result heat is dissipated more uniformly along the air column. The fins are designed to curve air path, to improve heat dissipation. Ventilation is care of a 120 mm fan, although there's provision for dual fan "push-pull" set up.

    The cooler measures 140x128x163 mm, weighing 806 g. The bundled 120 mm fan has a top speed of 1300 RPM ±10% pushing 52.6 CFM of air, and uses a 3-pin fan connector. A "Silent mode adapter" (intermediate resistor) slows it down to 900 RPM, reducing its air flow to 36.4 CFM. Between full speed and silent modes, the rated noise levels vary between 22.5 and 16.1 dBA. The Hyper 612S supports all current CPU socket types, including Intel LGA1366/1156/1155/775, and AMD Socket AM3/AM2+/AM2. Available in the markets by September, the Hyper 612S is expected to be priced around 45 Euros.

    With 6 heatpipes i hope it does good compared to other similar coolers.

    If CM provides the 2nd plastic support thing, sure, if not, it will a pain in the neck to do a push-pull config.
    And for 45€, I can understand why the fan doesn't have PWM.

    There will be a PWM variant of the Hyper 612S, which will have a different fan (600~2000 RPM) with 4-pin header. It will charge a small premium over this. I'm guessing 5 EUR more.

    The PWM version is already out. Im not sure if it comes with extra clips though.

    I just hope the mounting brackets aren't as cheap and crappy as they were on the 212.

    Not really. The Scythe Mugen 2 has a separate stack of fins for each heatpipe. The Hyper 612S is just one big stack with the heatpipes running through it.

    Scythe Mugen 2, has 5 H-P, and they have a nickel plated base, while this C-M has a center turned/ground base (something I've never seen). The extrusion of the aluminum is close, although C-M appears to have a couple extra steps on their profile. If Scythe was making it for C-M I'd bet that extrusion would be the same. The Mugen is a few mm shorter but is 64g heavier. It's more a design of one-up-men-ship!

    This looks really well designed, but heat pipe cooling tech was figured out in the 1960's. All they had to do was read the patents for design info.

    Was direct touch heatpipes just a gimmick that is going away?

    yup, flattenting the heatpipes = less heat pipe performance. not to mention several of them left 1 or 2 heat pipes hanging without any access to the cpu die.
