Video & Conclusion

Cooler Master has a huge reputation in the CPU cooling market, with their Hyper 212 series acting as the staple cooler for the PC gaming market for the past decade despite fierce competition.
The MA620P acts as an evolution of this iconic design, expanding the cooler to cover two aluminium fin-stacks with two 120mm fans for cooling. Combine this with the RGB functionality of the heatsink's included fans and users will have a real looker on their hands, though those who dislike RGB can always just unplug the cooler's 4-pin RGB connectors.
In the air cooling market, size matters, with cooler master promising that this heatsink is compatible with systems that use a GPU in their motherboard's first PCIe slot location, something that is often obstructed by other large air-coolers, making this cooler comparable with most modern systems. On that note, this cooler also supports every major CPU socket coming back to LGA 775, with TR4 being the only exception.
This is where the MA621P comes in, offering a tweaked design that is optimised for Threadripper's huge IHS, providing an optimal cooling experience. Cooler Master is not leaving anybody behind with this new heatsink design.
The only nitpick that we have with this cooler is that some of the images that Cooler Master have released for this cooler, including the pictures on the front of the box, can lead buyers to believe that this cooler has black painted heat fins. To be clear, all the fins on this cooler are not painted black. Don' expect anything other than a standard silvery aluminium colour.
The official review embargo for both of these coolers will lift later this month, so expect to see the thermal performance of this twin-stick heatsink later this month.
