Even as the CPU reached its high temp, I was never able to hear the Hyper N620’s fans, the BIOS kept them at silent running during all of the testing.
The Cooler Master Hyper N620 hung right in there with the two comparison coolers. That might not have been of any real significance, except for the fact that the N620 costs $5 less than the Tuniq cooler, and just over $10 less than the Zalman. So, if cost does matter in your CPU cooler purchase, the N620 could save you a few bucks to spend somewhere else.
The CM Hyper N620 is a nice cooler. Its styling with a pair of offset fans gives you a little different look than the typical generic tower cooler. The pair of black fans and a cover on the cooler also add to the look, rather than an expanse of silver/gray in your case.
The twin offset fans both allow for airflow over the cooler’s oversized radiator, and extra airflow to provide silent running even when an overclocked CPU is under load. The performance is excellent, amply cooling that hot 130w i7. It gave nearly the exact performance as the most expensive air CPU cooler on the market.
The CM Hyper N620 sells for $60 at my favorite online retailer. The Zalman costs over $70. If the purchase is for a new build, that extra $10 could be put on extra storage, ten bucks buys a lot of extra hard drive nowadays. Or spend it wherever, anytime you can save money is a good thing. ThinkComputers gives the Cooler Master Hyper N620 LGA 1366 Ready CPU Cooler a 10 out of 10 score.
– Offset design gives a different look over the average 120mm tower
