About this deal

With the cooler secured to our toasty Intel Core i7-7700K let's see how this Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition performed! The included SF120R fan arrives with a pair of mounting brackets that feel much more durable than the older 212 EVO design, and the fan spins from 650-2000 RPM (+/- 10%) for a max airflow of 57. For today's article, we'll be taking a look at a new Hyper 212 variant for the year 2023 - the Hyper 212 Halo Black. The contents of the box are securely packaged thanks to the use of cardboard dividers and foam inserts. Cooler Master Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition – There was a slight increase in noise when using the RGB fan.

The RGB-enabled PWM fan can be controlled by RGB software from a supported motherboard, or from an included controller. Your personality is embedded in each of those choices, transcending from hardware to an immersive, custom-built experience. Precise Air Flow with Nickle Black - Stacked fin array ensures least airflow resistance which allows cooler air flow into the heatsink. Today we will benchmark that cooler yet again using the current test platform, and compare it to a new generation of Hyper 212: the Black Edition.

I have tested this venerable cooler more than once over the years, but it has proven to be such a vital part of any CPU air-cooling discussion that it demands to be part of every cooler review lineup. The brushed aluminum panel added to the top of the cooler adds a few points to the overall quality look and feel of the cooler, something the previous generations of Hyper 212 coolers lacked.

I’ve also got an XFX RX 590 Fatboy graphics card all sitting on an MSI b450 Tomahawk motherboard andthe case of choice is the Phanteks P300. The Direct Contact Technology, stacked fins and 4 heatpipes reduces airflow resistance, reduces heat spots and increase airflow to the heatsinks. It's a case of a very old, not so good product being so popular that it still sells like hot pancakes because of word of mouth marketing. The Hyper 212 Black Edition offers better installation and great performance, easily one of the best air cooling solutions. Moving over to the bottom of the cooling tower assembly, we see that the Hyper 212 Halo Black features four direct-contact heat pipes that are painted black so as to match the rest of the cooling tower’s appearance.It’s very likely that anyone who purchases this particular CPU will be in the market for a CPU cooler upgrade especially if the user is looking to do any form of overclocking. No surprises really, that the Hyper 212 Halo Black serves up a far more superior thermal performance when compared to the AMD Wraith Stealth, where as a result, it was even able to eke out more performance out of the Ryzen 5 5600 for the Cinebench R23 multi core test (10648 points with the Hyper 212 Halo Black versus 9981 points with the Wraith Stealth). There's an AM4 upgrade kit for the Hyper 212 Evo but you're better off getting a newer cooler if you don't already have it. Idle temps range from 30C-40C but when playing games (50-60% CPU usage) I've been getting temps around 78C-85C.
