Hyper 212 Plus

Disclaimer: Displayed parts and accessories may not be included in the actual product package.



Succeeding the popular Hyper 212, the Hyper 212 Plus carries on the legacy of providing a great balance of performance and noise level during high and low speed operations.

Hyper 212 Plus is Cooler Master's first cooler to be equipped with an all-in-one mounting solution that includes LGA 1156 and 1366. Direct Contact heat-pipe is now also utilized in this latest update.

Supports Intel Sandy Bridge 1155

      "The Hyper 212 is quiet, cheap and supports a secondary fan for additional cooling. It also sits at the top of a bang-for-your-buck Tom's Hardware cooler chart."

      "The Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus, despite being lighter, thinner, and having smaller heatpipes, is a better overall heatsink than the Fenrir."

      "As we just saw, the Cooler Master 212 Plus provides good performance for the price......Not only does the Hyper 212 Plus perform well, but its performance is dramatically improved by the cheap (or free) upgrade that is an additional fan."

      "The Hyper 212 Plus impressed me in most respects. The performance was better than I had anticipated, the mounting was easy and versatile and the documentation was clear. I also liked the fact that the unit had a smaller footprint with only one fan, allowing for easy access to the components and wiring around it."

      "The Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus had no problem keeping the i7 860’s temps under control, I was well pleased with its performance. An OC Load temperature of 59C is well within my expectations for cooling any of today’s processors......I found nothing that I didn’t like about the Hyper 212 Plus."

      "It’s hard to find much to gripe about with the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus.  It offers far superior cooling to the stock Intel cooler, is compatible with all current AMD and Intel setups, is relatively easy to install, and even offers upgradability if you have another 120mm fan lying around."

      "If you need a cooler for your new 1156 Core i5/i7 CPU, we recommend both the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus and the Hyper TX3. Each of these are impressive and up to task, and while each have their differences, both are great products and deserve serious consideration for your purchase shortlist."

      "When it comes to cooling your CPU efficiently and quietly, Cooler Master is the company to turn to.  We saw Hyper 212 Plus quietly eclipse the stock cooler on both the dual and tri core Phenom IIs – overclocked as far as they can go, given the overvoltage used in each case – up to +.2V for 720 X3 which allowed it to match 550 X2 in speed but at a much lower extra core voltage (+.1)."

      "If you happen to have an energy efficient processor (85W or 65W TDP) you'll get the best of both worlds by running the Hyper 212 Plus at reduced fan speeds where operation is essentially silent. In any event, the Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus is an economical and well performing tower heatsink which is suitable for Intel 775 Core 2 Duo/Core i7 and AMD Phenom II processor. Recommended."

      "Cooler Master makes a good show.  The Hyper 212 Plus Cooler does a great job with a single cooling fan attached or going all out with two......The Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus Cooler is a great product worthy of being on a short list for your next build."

      "I feel that for a price of around $35 it offers a decent level of cooling performance with only a three degree difference in load temperatures between the Hyper 212 plus and TRUE when overclocked. It's safe to say that there is even a little headroom for a bit of overclocking."

      "With a price point of only $29.99, you get a cooler that is capable of handling a highly overclocked Core i7 920 D0 out of the box......This heatsink will do rather well on the upcoming Core i5/i7 processors made for the P55/57 platforms and all of the AMD CPU sockets supported."
