About this deal

Naturally style means nothing without performance, and with the RGB Black Edition we are still looking at a single tower heatsink design with four heat pipes that are designed to make direct contact with the CPU, and air is still being moved via a single 120 mm fan. heat pipes with exclusive Direct Contact Technology provide effective and excellent heat dissipation.

One of the Hyper 212 Halo Black's key features is its new and improved fan - a MasterFan MF120 HALO² part. RGB SYNC - The Hyper 212 RGB Black combines integrated RGB lighting effects with enhanced heat-sink upgrades making it the perfect choice for an air cooler with outstanding aesthetics and performance. The amazing performance you’d get in an inexpensive package is what has kept system builders coming back build after build.The Cooler Master Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition features two connectors for the fan: a 4-pin PWM fan connector and an additional 4-pin RGB LED connector. Naturally, the fan's RGB effects can be controlled by your motherboard's RGB controller application from within Windows. This was likely due to the additional thermal overhead from using a better CPU cooler, where the CPU was able to run at higher boost clocks for a longer period of time as a result. This is important as the fan blocks access to the screws used to tighten down the heatsink to the back plate assembly. The Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Edition is a welcomed and a modern redesign to the original Hyper 212 CPU cooler.

During the benchmarking process, I found the MF120 HALO² fan to be pretty quiet even when the Ryzen 5 5600 was under heavy load. DIY PC enthusiasts who've used the Hyper 212 in its previous iterations would have immediately noticed the quality improvements when it comes to the Halo Black's mounting hardware - the amount of kit that comes included has been significantly streamlined, paving the way for a more fuss-free installation experience. They offer a vast assortment of peripherals, heatsinks, fans, cases, power supplies, all-in-one liquid coolers, desks, chairs, and so much more. As the cooler would be tested on an AM4 CPU/motherboard combo, the appropriate AM4/AM5 mounting bracket was installed on the cooling tower assembly - this was a two-screw affair that took me around 30 seconds to install in total. On the top of the cooling tower, we see that Cooler Master’s included an aluminium top plate with some screen printed motifs featuring a minimalist rendition of the Cooler Master logo – the top plate obscures the ends of the heat pipes that the cooler comes with, and sure goes a long way in making the Hyper 212 Halo Black look premium.Precise Air Flow with Nickle Black - Stacked fin array ensures least airflow resistance which allows cooler air flow into the heatsink. We know that components are carefully chosen based on performance, functionality, and aesthetic preference. The Silencio FP120 features exclusive Silent Driver IC technology which reduces noise and power output. I mean, even with the fan speed set to its Max setting, I was barely able to hear the system, which was awesome. You can also add another 120mm fan at the back if you wish to go for a push pull configuration and I appreciate Cooler Master including an extra set of clips for that.
