Cooler Master Hyper TX2 & 212

http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/200..._tx2_and_212/1

Cooler Master cracks out a couple of new heatsinks to wade in an sweep existing kings off their feet: First, there's a Freezer Pro 7 contender, the Hyper TX2, and a new alternative to the Noctua NF-U12, the Hyper 212. How do they stack up? We find out.

Is the mobo really as bent as it shows in this image: http://www.bit-tech.net/content_imag.../txmount-7.jpg ? Wouldn't like to see my lovely piece of hardware in such painful looking stance :/

Hmm the 212 looks like they have taken a Tuniq Tower and cut the fins in half and then switched them around.

That can't be healthy, but on the plus side it looks kind of like Darth Vader.

I've noticed the bending before on the boards that get used for heatsink testing - I'd put it down to different tensions on different mountings but if the same board is getting bent like that it's only gonna be a matter of time before it breaks (pics please!)

@Jipa, i agree! I like the fact that they are smaller than the scythe range of coolers, i just purchased and installed a scythe ninja and its massive, it has cranked my temps down from when i used the intel stock cooler but i had trouble getting the fan in with my ram, nice to see decent temps can be had with a smaller cooler...and the 10 one, no wonder it was given best value! nice review

Look how big the graph is and how many heatsink installs I've subjected the same board to! I'll make sure I'll straighten it out in future but I think it's just been flexed too much

Bindi: do you reckon it's the pins of the stock 775-cooler that do that or does the same problem appear also with bolt-through mounting? Sure most users change the cooler once or twice, so that's not a big of a deal, but I'm just interested in why mobos do that..

pins mostly - because you have to press from the top without underneath support. With bolts you're meant to tighten opposite ones evenly and stop before it bends.

You can still bend it back easily enough, and if it's screwed in your case firmly it shouldn't bend as much.

You have gotten centimeter and milimeter mixed up on page on 1:
"The build quality is very good and the 90cm sleeve bearing cooling fan is rated at just 22dB. It's designed to draw air in from the sides as well as the front before forcing it inwards - as a result, Cooler Master claims that this gives the effective cooling of a 100cm fan instead."

Should be "mm" not "cm" otherwise that would be some big ass fans

I would like to see the temps for the stock Intel and AMD coolers. They are not included in this review or the last one.

This is the first disappointing review I've read on this site in quite a while. The reviewer needs to take a clear stance on the results and make a clear and intelligent comparison with the selected Noctua Cooler. Muddled as is.

OK.

There isn't a direct comparison - despite the very similar design, the Noctua is designed for silence and comes with an 800rpm fan, the Cooler Master comes with a 2000rpm fan and has a far greater performance, as well as noise as a result. You can swap out the fans for alternatives, with each other if need be, and they'd probably perform about the same because of it. You don't buy a Noctua expecting ultimate performance, like you don't buy a 212 expecting silence, but both can do either, just not out the box. It doesn't even come with inbuilt fan regulation like you get with the Thermaltakes.

There are too many options to say, "get this, don't get that" because you can do more than just take it out the box and throw it on a CPU.

I personally would not buy the 212 because of the noise, I wouldn't get the Noctua either because it's particularly low slung making it incompatible with a fair few motherboards. I'd still get either Thermaltake or stick with my Arctic Cooler Freezer 7 Pro.
