Cooler Master announces two Hyper 212 Black Edition coolers

Cooler Master's Hyper 212 CPU cooler has long been a staple of the industry, acting as the defacto low-cost CPU cooler since the release of the original over a decade ago. 

Over time the Hyper 212 has evolved, offering users design tweaks that enhanced the heatsink's performance, offered increased compatibility with new CPU sockets and delivered improved aesthetic options for design conscious PC builders. 

Today, Cooler Master has revealed two new Hyper 212 variants, offering PC builders new Silencio series fans to deliver reduced noise output while achieving high levels of static pressure for enhanced cooling. The first of these two Hyper 2012 coolers is the RGB enabled Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition, which uses an SF120R series RGB fan, an anodised gun-metal top-cover plate and a nickel-black heatsink array. 

Like other recent iterations of the Hyper 212, the Hyper 212 RGB BLack Edition used four direct contact heatpipes to ensure optimal cooling efficiency, with the fan supporting RGB LED control using an included controller or by using other RGB control systems. 

Those who prefer to ignore the RGB craze can purchase the Hyper 201 Black Edition, the "All-Black" edition of the Hyper 212. This version wastes no time on RGB illumination, using a Silencio FP120 series fan with Silent Driver IC technology. This tech is said to reduce noise and power output while offering high-pressure air flow to deliver increased cooling performance. 

Unlike the RGB variant, the standard Black Edition uses wire fan clips to mount its 120mm fan, whereas the RGB enabled version uses plastic fan clips.

Cooler Master plans to release both of these coolers on October 20th for €34.99 and €44.99 for the Hyper 212 Black Edition and the Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition respectively.

I truly don't understand how Cooler Master can act like they don't have any competition in the market. In fact I don't understand how they're still in business. Who keeps buying their overpriced products? There's a metric ton of better and yet less expensive alternatives practically everywhere.


The above mentioned H7 is better in every way. It's smaller, doesn't interfere with RAM slots, it cools better and it's in the same price range. And IMO it looks better. There's also the new-ish Arctic Freezer 33 eSports One. Same story there. So why does this exist?Quote

Because it used to be so popular and the fact that companies like Amazon and such will bundle similar product reviews together. So the 212 gets thousands of high rated reviews and will get put in the "featured/Highest Rated" category and therefore everyone just assumes its the best and buys it.Quote
