Decent cooling with a single fan.
Multiple AMD installation positions.
Six Heatpipe Construction.
Good Heatpipe Exposure.
Custom Cooling Fan.
Dual Fan Option.
Average load cooling, despite its size.
Only comes with a single fan.
Could use a more powerful fan.
Protective sticker leaves residue on heat sink base.
Rather pedestrian appearance.

and FVAfter spending time with both and having a chance to compare the two what do we think? Installing the Intel water cooling, as much as I hate it, is still better than trying to install the Hyper 612 PWM. Its size makes it nearly impossible to...80

The Coolermaster Hyper 612 PWM heatsink stands 163mm tall and weighs a pretty hefty 806 grams. The cooler is compatible with Intel socket 775/1155/1156 and LGA1366 processors, but crucially not LGA2011 Sandy Bridge-E CPUs. AMD socket AM2/AM3/FM1...82

The eighth Hyper cooler from Cooler Master turned out a very good and efficient product with all the advantages of a contemporary CPU cooler. It comes in a secure and informative packaging, is completely universal and is bundled with an additional...-

The Cooler Master Hyper 612 PWM is a very large CPU cooler. Adding a second fan, while decreasing your temperatures, will make the cooler much larger and may even cause some clearance issues. Due to its large size, this cooler might not be right for...80

The Cooler Master H612PWM is the companies latest release. The H612PWM draws on some older and proven techniques and pairs them with some new ones. The result is presentable. In our test the H612PWM did perform well. Cooler Master implemented a...-

When I first received the Hyper 612 PWM in the mail I was very interested to see how it was going to compare to the last Cooler Master cooler (The V6 GT) I had reviewed (which had done very well in our testing). While Cooler Master has been in the...90

We mentioned early in this review that there are a few things that we feel make for a great heatpipe cooler. The first is position of the heatpipes in relation to incoming air. Often times we see high end coolers with the pipes in line with airflow...100

Cooler Master has produced air cooling solutions, some of which include the V6GT and Hyper 212 Plus as notable higher-performance options. And that trend continues here with the Hyper 612 PWM, as it hits all the necessary requirements including the...-

I hate to ever sound like a fan boy, and I always look at things in a product by product basis, but there are just times you have to acknowledge a trend. After a rash of coolers with some of the most impossible mounting systems and questionable build...-

We think the Cooler Master Hyper 612 PWM has the stuff it takes to be one of the better coolers on the market. In our test we saw the cooler compete neck and neck with the NZXT Havik 140 and the Scythe Yasya both we felt were pretty good coolers. It...-
