Cooler Master Announces the Hyper 612 CPU Cooler in the EU

Cooler Master, a leading creator, innovator, and manufacturer of desktop components and gaming peripherals today announced the latest addition to the Hyper series: the Hyper 612 ver. 2. The Hyper-series is known for its very aggressive price/performance ratio which makes it one of the most popular cooling series in the world.

The Cooler Master Hyper 612 ver. 2 is designed with versatility in mind. The first option is to use it as a Silent (passive) cooler. Patented technologies like CDC and X-Vent are two reasons why the Hyper 612 can reach extreme low temperatures. CDC or Continuous Direct Contact is a technology developed by Cooler Master to improve the contact between the CPU and the heatpipes. This improved contact allows for better heat dissipation and thus improves the performance of the cooler.
The other reason why the Hyper 612 ver. 2 is perfectly suited as Silent cooler is because of the X-Vent Technology. This technology allows better airflow, just by simply using the right angle for the air vents. Cooler Master recommends to use the Hyper 612 ver. 2 as a passive cooler for CPU's using up to 95W (for example Core i5).

Next to these technologies which already boost the performance of the Hyper 612 ver. 2, there are some other features which allow you to turn the 612 into a high performance cooler. The most important feature is that you can add an additional fan (next to the PWM fan which comes in the box) to its setup so you can use a double fan configuration. Together with the above average space between the specially shaped cooling fins this double fan option offers you huge airflow options which will make sure your CPU stays as cool as possible.

Diversity when you need it
The Hyper 612 ver. 2 is a very diverse cooler, which is strengthened by the other features the cooler has to offer:
  • Two different ways to mount the fan (plastic clip or wire clip)
  • Four anti-vibration rubbers
  • No interference with memory due to special design
  • Easy mounting procedure
The Hyper 612 ver. 2 will be available in European market from end of September. Price and availability may vary based on region. Expected M.S.R.P 39.9€ included VAT.

So innovative/advanced/patented that Thermalright did this with the HR-01 half a decade ago already.

There's really not a lot to innovate when it comes to budget coolers. You pay for the metals and packaging, and see how low the costs go.

40 euros is acceptable for a 6-pipe cooler. If this performs on par with coolers like the Scythe Mugen 3 than sure, what the hell.

CM's Hyper 212 is one heck of a value cooler when you get right down to it. That cooler can push many CPU's to their limits already.

Would love to see how the improvements here improve on the Hyper212 because if so it could be a greater value!

The Hyper 212 Plus and EVO are excellent performing HSFs that also provide a good value. It's become difficult for all HSF makers to really deliver much more performance or benefits than what exists. A quality HSF is still the ideal choice for 99% of the world and will continue to be based on cost vs. performance, noise and reliability.

What the CPU cooler companies need right now is more PC sales which AMD could certainly help if they had a new, increased performance desktop CPU for enthusiasts. Everyone in the PC industry like many industries depends on annual or semi-annual new product releases to create demand for associated products.
