Cooler Master Hyper 612 PWM CPU Cooler Review

Today we’ll be looking at a new Cooler Master CPU cooler, the Hyper 612 PWM. This cooler, which is yet to be available for purchase, offers a large heatsink, 6 copper heatpipes and a 120mm PWM fan for both silence and cooling.  While its support for an additional fan may give you extra cooling, the cooler might not fit in all cases. Read on further to find out if this large cooler will work for you.

Special thanks to Cooler Master for providing us with the Hyper 612 PWM CPU Cooler to review.


  • Optimized with wider fin gaps and resistance reduction cut-offs for low fan speed condition.
  • Unconventional layout of the heatpipe direction: all 6 heat pipes can cross over the “hot zone” on most of the modern CPUs for better cooling efficiency.
  • Quick-snap fan bracket design for easier installation.
  • Wide range PWM fan (600 – 2000 R.P.M.) provides versatile performance for full loading efficiency and for quiet idling.
