Superior Cooling Performance for Intel® and AMD® CPUs from Cooler Master

Cooler Master is proud to introduce its latest creation – the Hyper 212 CPU Cooler; offering a unique dual-fin design, LED sickle fan blade, universal fit, and silent operation at 19dBA – the Hyper 212 delivers superior cooling performance for Intel® and AMD® CPUs.

The Hyper 212 isn’t just any CPU cooler, it comes with two distinctive designs. The Hyper 212 uses a dual-fin heat sink design, leaving space in the middle for excess airflow to pass through without the usual resistance of traditional head sinks; therefore pushing hot airflow out of the chassis at an even faster rate. The mirror-coated copper base also maximizes contact with the CPU and channels heat through four heat pipes. Once heat is brought to the heat sink fins, its special fan blade design whisks away heat; there is even the option of installing a second fan to double the amount of air pressure. With its fan orientation, heat is exhausted directly out of the back of the chassis before it has a chance to wreak havoc on the system.

The engineers at Cooler Master have still managed to offer silent operation through a unique sickle blade fan design, which offers massive airflow while maintaining a low 19dBA noise output. And best of all, the Hyper 212 provides a universal fit, supporting a wide range of both Intel® and AMD CPUs, including Intel Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Extreme, Core 2 Duo and AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual-Core, and AMD Athlon™ 64 FX.

The Hyper 212 will be available soon worldwide at a suggested retail price of $42.90, making it the most affordable and highest performing CPU cooling solution in its class.

"The looks of the Cooler Master Hyper 212 can be pretty deceiving, it actually encompasses some pretty innovative design with the dual-fin and sickle fan blade and the option to add an additional fan on the back," says Paul Liao, Product Manager of Cooler Master. "This is what we're all about, bringing the best technology to enhance the most demanding systems on the market."

This game runs great on an x2 3800+/2g w/7600GT. @ 1680x1050.

However, I find the campaign very frustrating. It`s pulling u over the map to show u stuff, rotates u around.

The controls suck!

.. can`t think of anything else...

Other than that it`s ok.

I run it alll full 4 x aa @1280*1024 min fps 10 max 45 but i dont care if it goes down to 10 the water effects and explosions are worthed

I have to run at medium :(

Kicks arse although its annoying when you find yourself coming from one side of the map to the next to defend some points from 20 odd russian tanks :'/

Am seriously tempted to get this game....anyone know if it's SLi compliant? I am keen to get that eye candy cranked up as much as possible!

I'm usually an FPS man but this is looking good....

Is it worth the outlay?

Mr. Smith
Bought it, installed it, started playing the tutorial... My system can't run this game @ 1920x1600 with high settings so I reduced the res to 16xx by whatever, still not smooth. Took it back :(

Swapped it for Airborn which is average at best, but I'm noticing artifacts so something is up! W00t. Dontcha love pc's!

This game looks amazing though :(

if you have played any of the ground control games from Massive its like that, ability to zoom alll the way into units, battles go on for ages due to the way the re-inforcements work its fantastic, only with 100x more detail and a MUCH better engine, it's beautiful. worth every penny you spend just to see it :) hehe
I'll double check to see if there is an SLi setting in the options anywhere for you tonight if i remember

Nice one SuB, would be good to put the GTXs through their paces and am interested if it would allow me to run the game at 1920x1200 with the settings turned up.
