Cooler Master Hyper 612 v2 Review

Cooler Master supply all the brackets and fittings you'll need for a whole host of AMD and Intel CPUs. Whichever you go for the process is essentially the same. Following the selection of the universal back plate and appropriate brackets (we're not using one as we're socket 2011), the first job is to screw in the clamping bracket stand offs. Following that the clamping brackets are slipped over the top.
The clamping brackets are then tightened down with nuts to provide a solid platform for the cross plate which lives inside the lower section of the cooler. Having hooked one side to the clip under the left hand clamping bracket the opposite side is screwed down tight to the opposite bracket, using a system not too dissimilar to the tried and tested AMD stock cooler method.
Although not a huge cooler by any means the 612 v2 certainly makes its presence known inside its spiritual home, the Cooler Master "Test Trooper"
The overhang at the rear of the cooler means that we've got no problems using it with the dual RAM banks on the socket 2011 motherboard.
