Cooler Master, a global leader in manufacturing CPU coolers, computer components and peripherals, introduces two new air coolers from our legendary Hyper 212 line. The Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition and Hyper 212 Black Edition both offer an improved installation process from previous models with the same best in class performance. The aluminum top cover, nickel plated jet black fins and metallic heat pipe caps gives the Hyper 212 Black Edition models an upgraded premium aesthetic appeal. The RGB model comes with the new SF120R RGB fan and the Hyper 212 Black Edition is equipped with a Silencio fan with exclusive Silent Drive IC technology.

  • Precise Air Flow with Nickle Black - Stacked fin array ensures least airflow resistance which allows cooler air flow into the heatsink. The nickel plated jet black also enhances radiation cooling performance
  • Direct Contact Technology - 4 heatpipes with Exclusive Direct Contact Technology providing effective and excellent heat dissipation
  • The New SF120R RGB Fan - is certified to sync with Motherboard RGB software or controlled by our controller. The wide speed range can be fine-tuned for maximum cooling performance or silent operation.
  • RGB LED Controller - The wired RGB LED Controller allows for customizable colors and effects with just the touch of a button
  • Snap and Play - Intuitive fan bracket design makes upgrading and removing the fan a breeze

Funny to see they're slowly but surely increasing the price on this mid-end solution.

212 / Evo became popular because of the performance per dollar, but price has increased 100% since then.

Anyway, good to see a Black Edition. Couldn't care less about the RGB one.

The pricing is in line with the 212, at least here. I wonder what's the performance like due to the different fan. And looks, even though subjective, are greatly improved I'd say.

Maybe it's the price pay for RGB :) Not such a fan if I'm honest but each to their own :) Would love to know why there's so many price increases on the things people would buy because of the price/performance ratio.....

To all those arguing that it's ok to put RGB on everything as long as you can turn that off if you're not using it: you now have proof RGB adds ~€10 to the price.

35 bucks is already pushing it IMO for this tiny heatsink and 'okay' fan. Put this next to a Scythe Mugen or a Gelid Tranquillo and both are better options, either being more capable or 30% cheaper and more silent.

I do like the all black stealth version, in fact as a response to the RGB madness of late, my next build will be an all black stealth build or as 'black' as its possible to make it these days.

So much this. Desperately overrated cooler at its price point.

I've had slightly better luck with red.

In all seriousness though...my cheap go to cooler is the Cryorig M9 series. 20 bucks. Surprisingly quiet for a 92mm fan.

go stealth or go home & play with your silly r.g.b. crappiness :D

They better be careful with that black-on-black scheme though, or someone might start accusing them of being racially insensitive o_O

That's why they don't and never will make a completely white on white version........

What would be a better cooler at that price point? I'm a bit out of the loop and I do have a thing for heatsinks that are 500g or less.
Raijintek Themis Evo, slightly heavier at over 600g but that's big cooler with 4x8mm pipes instead of 6mm, I can assume it cools as well as 6x6mm. Cheaper than 212 Evo right now on Newegg, 212 Evo might be good in general but will fall behind with OC or high core count, since the cooler is too slim to soak up extra heat, Themis Evo might by handy because it's fatter and has thicker pipes.

I don't think anyone expects coolers in this price range to shine at handling heavy overclocks or tons of cores ;)
