Cooler Master Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition CPU Cooler Review: Page 5 of 7

System Configuration & Installation

The test system we are using is:

  • Cooler Master MB530P
  • ASRock Z370 Tachi Motherboard
  • Intel 8700K Processor
  • 4 x 4GB Team Group T-Force Delta RGB Ram
  • EVGA 1070 FTW 8GB
  • EVGA 750W P2 PSU

The installation of the Hyper 212 was an easy process and the instructions included were both illustrated and well written. You will also notice that the cooler and fan does not interfere with our tall RGB ram. This is a huge plus over the old Hyper 212 where you either had to install a slim fan or mount the fan at a higher point on the cooler. The fan was a tight fit so we did need to remove the first stick of ram to snap on the fan. But once the fan was installed on the cooler, we put the ram back into the motherboard without issue.

The Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition matches my build perfectly and the new brushed, anodized aluminum top just looks stellar.

The fan itself also looks great with vivid colors and the clear fan blades which diffuse the light quite nicely.
