Cooler Master Outs Hyper 212 ARGB Turbo CPU Cooler

Cooler Master rolled out an updated version of its Hyper 212 Turbo dual-fan tower-type CPU air cooler, the Hyper 212 ARGB Turbo. This cooler is almost identical to the Hyper 212 RGB Turbo and the LED Turbo; except that it packs a pair of Sickleflow 120 ARGB fans with an updated addressable RGB LED setup. The cooler includes an ARGB controller module to which you plug in the 3-pin ARGB cables of both fans, which then lets you cycle between a presets, pulling power from a SATA power connection; although you can directly plug in the fans to any 3-pin ARGB headers.

The heatsink at the heart of the Hyper 212 ARGB Turbo is standard CM 212 issue - an aluminium fin-stack tower with four 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes that make direct contact with the CPU at the base. The "Turbo" moniker is from the fact that two 120 mm fans are included in the package, which ventilate the heatsink in a push-pull arrangement. Each of the two Sickleflow 120 ARGB spinners does 650 - 1800 RPM, pushing 61 CFM of air at top speed, with a noise output of 27 dBA (max). With its fans in place, the cooler measures 120 mm x 109 mm x 155 mm (WxDxH). Among the CPU socket types supported are LGA2066, LGA1200, LGA115x, and AM4. We expect this cooler to be priced around $50.

Update May 7th: Cooler Master confirmed to us that this cooler will initially only be released in the Asia-Pacific region, before making it to Europe, while not being sold in North America.

I actually don't see anything turbo about it, and the price of newer Hyper 212 is just creeping upwards with flashy RGB fans.

Average price of Hyper 212 is £30 so some led bling on fans cost £20 extra no thanks

The extra cost is not just for the bling, but I believe should also be due to an extra fan. At least in the picture, it is a dual fan solution. The older Hyper 212 models includes an extra fan clip that you can install a second fan, and I feel it is better to invest that 20 pounds on a better fan than what Coolermaster have to offer.

What I do feel is that Coolermaster is introducing too many versions of Hyper 212 with mostly cosmetic improvements, and prices are certainly slowly creeping upwards. Cooling wise, they don't differ much. Any significant improvements are due to an upgrade from a single to dual fan cooling (push and pull config).
