Review: New Goliath in CM's offer



Cooler Master Hyper 612S will be available at €39.90, VAT included. The price says it’s an upper mid-range part, although it has proven that it does quite well when compared to some high-end offerings.

The only downside, if there is any, is the noise fan motor, which doesn’t quite fit into the image of a quiet Hyper 612S. Despite being touted as super low noise, the fan buzzing should be addressed before strapping a product with such name. Cooler Master said that it opted against PWM fans because they’re noisy, so we can’t understand why the problem remained. As far as airflow noise goes, the fan is one of the quieter we’ve tested thus far. Once the rpm drops to 900, the fan is almost inaudible, bar the buzzing sound.

Cooler Master did a good job with Hyper 612S’ heatsink, which will love low rpm fans. The heatsink is massive and the distance between aluminum fins is 2.4mm. This means that the cooler will run great with quality airflow inside the case, so semi-passive operation is possible. You should make sure that it will fit in your case, since it is 163mm tall, but if it can – then the Hyper 612S should make your shopping list and will definitely serve you well.
