The Cooler Master Hyper 212 LED may not look too different from the original 212 EVO. In fact, I am not sure I could tell the difference if they were side by side. However, the heatsink has been upgraded to improve heat dissipation, while the mounting system has been revamped to make it as pain-free as possible.
The cooler ships with two Cooler Master XtraFlo 120mm PWM fans, a step up from the single fan on the regular Hyper 212 LED. The fans snap on and off for quick installation and removal, and come with anti-vibration rubber pads to help reduce noise.
However, instead of a copper base plate that acts as an interface between the CPU and the heat pipes, the Hyper 212 LED Turbo relies on four direct contact heat pipes to channel heat away from the processor, much like the other coolers in the Hyper 212 series.
The cooler will work with the latest Intel LGA 1151 and AMD AM4 sockets without the need for any additional compatibility kids.
Taking a look at the heatsink, it’s not something that is spectacular but the construction is appreciable. The aluminium fins are strong and the base is composed of both aluminium and copper heat pipes. The base is well finished and smooth and there are a total of 4 copper heat pipes that are passing through the base from one side to another. The heat pipes are extended to the top of the heatsink and share the heat equally. The base needed the direct contact with the heat pipes because it transfers heat quickly as the small aluminium base isn’t that efficient alone in eliminating the heat from the processor.
The cooler is big enough when both the fans are installed. the Heatsink features the Red coloured aluminium cover at the top with the Cooler Master LOGO which is also available in Black.
