Opening the box up and pulling out the Hyper 212 Plus shows all the accessories that come with the cooler. A new 120mm PWM fan is included that offers a wide range of RPM(600-2000) providing up to 76.8CFM and comes with rubber mounting hardware to reduce noise and vibration. The fan is rated at 13dBA at the lowest RPM and up to 32dBA when spinning at 2k RPM. The mounting kits included provide support for AMD s939 all the way up to the new AM3 sockets and Intel support for s775, 1366 and the soon to be released 1156 socket.

As we take a look at the heatsink, we can see that Cooler Master is using direct touch heatpipes with the new Hyper 212 Plus. There are four heat pipes in all combined with an all aluminum heatsink to provide excellent performance at very quiet fan speeds. The 212 Plus weighs in at 1.338lbs or 626g. There is support for an additional fan to be mounted on the Hyper 212 Plus allowing you to increase the cooling performance. Only one fan is included in the kit.

We will review our test setup and testing methodologies on the next page.
