    Cooler Master is proud to introduce its latest creation – the Hyper 212 CPU Cooler; offering a unique dual-fin design, LED sickle fan blade, universal fit, and silent operation at 19dBA – the Hyper 212 delivers superior cooling performance for Intel and AMD CPUs.

    The Hyper 212 isn’t just any CPU cooler, it comes with two distinctive designs. The Hyper 212 uses a dual-fin heat sink design, leaving space in the middle for excess airflow to pass through without the usual resistance of traditional head sinks; therefore pushing hot airflow out of the chassis at an even faster rate. The mirror-coated copper base also maximizes contact with the CPU and channels heat through four heat pipes. Once heat is brought to the heat sink fins, its special fan blade design whisks away heat; there is even the option of installing a second fan to double the amount of air pressure. With its fan orientation, heat is exhausted directly out of the back of the chassis before it has a chance to wreak havoc on the system.

    The engineers at Cooler Master have still managed to offer silent operation through a unique sickle blade fan design, which offers massive airflow while maintaining a low 19dBA noise output. And best of all, the Hyper 212 provides a universal fit, supporting a wide range of both Intel and AMD CPUs, including Intel Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Extreme, Core 2 Duo and AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core, and AMD Athlon 64 FX.

    The Hyper 212 will be available soon worldwide at a suggested retail price of $42.90, making it the most affordable and highest performing CPU cooling solution in its class.

    "The looks of the Cooler Master Hyper 212 can be pretty deceiving, it actually encompasses some pretty innovative design with the dual-fin and sickle fan blade and the option to add an additional fan on the back," says Paul Liao, Product Manager of Cooler Master. "This is what we're all about, bringing the best technology to enhance the most demanding systems on the market."

    You are probably thinking Sonic Tower?
    http://www.thermaltake.com/product/Cooler/Retail/CL-P0323/cl-p0323.asp

    That has fan pushing from other way and Tuniq tower is a twintower too, but fan in middle (and many others fallowed).

    Oh and it's of cource a lazy design version of Zalmans CNPS9500, that also had hole in he middle (where fan obviously has a deadspot.

    I have a Cooler Master Hyper I recently purchased from NewEgg. It looks the same, I bet it is. The only difference I see is the lighted fan.

    The Hyper I have is very quiet, but not the greatest cooler.

    Not even close, you'll lose your betting =) Hyper TX2 is with 92mm fan and it's normal 1 tower design. Hyper 212 is with 12cm fan and has 2 towers with a space between them. Also Hyper TX2 is a budget solution for stock cooler replacement, this is more of an improvement in performance.

    quite a nice and elegant design. Id love to see a TPU review of this and see how it compares to other air coolers.
