Cooler Master Hyper 212 Halo White CPU Cooler Review
Thermal Testing – A solid improvement over older Hyper 212 iterations
When testing Cooler Master’s new Hyper 212 Halo White Edition CPU Cooler, we utilised our standard heatsink testing configuration which uses an Intel i9-9900K processor running at a fixed clock speed of 4.8GHz at 1.2V.
As an air-based heatsink that costs Â£39.99, it must be known that we did not expect much from Cooler Master’s new Hyper 212 Halo heatsinks, and to say the least we were pleasantly surprised. Not only did the heatsink perform a lot better than Cooler Master’s older Hyper 212 Black Edition heatsink, but it did so while running at much lower fan RPMs and noise levels. This heatsink isn’t the Hyper 212 of yesteryear, it is a solid redesign that had a capable fan and a lot of cooling potential. That said, as a single-tower air-based CPU heatsink, the Hyper 212 Halo White was never going to get to the lower sections of our CPU cooling performance charts.
Regardless, these are excellent performance levels for an air-based CPU heatsink of this size and pricing level. Cooler Master have done a great job redesigning their Hyper 212 heatsink with their new Halo series models.Â
Conclusion – A solid air-based heatsink with an excellent aesthetic
