Cooler Master Hyper Z600 CPU Cooler

Introduction & Specification

Introduction

Cooler Master Z600Cooler Master is a name most commonly known for luxurious cases, rather than performance CPU cooling. However, Cooler Master have made some bold claims about their new Z600 cooler, with passive cooling for quad-cores and active cooling promising high overclock capabilities for your CPU. We put the Z600 to the test to find out if it can really live up to the hype.

There is quite a lot of information about the company available on the Cooler Master website, but for those that don’t fancy the long read, here’s an extract:

‘Cooler Master was founded with the mission of providing the industry’s best thermal solutions. Since its establishment a decade ago, the company has remained faithful to this mission, emerging as a world leader in products and services for companies dealing with devices where heat issues must be resolved.’

Could you give temps with the two fans attached @ 1.4v?Quote

Haven't gotten a chance to read through it yet, but something to mention is that on the graphs themselves the stock ones should explicitly say it was run passive and the OC'ed ones should explicitly say run with fans. Tons of people who look up cooler reviews only look at the graphs and don't actually read any of the review itself.Quote

It should be pretty similar, the Z600 handles extra heat extremely well. I cant really go testing for everyones individual set ups, otherwise It would take years. But if you are after a top notch HSF, the z600 is the one

There is the little text before the graphs, and hopefully people will look accross at them. I dont think there is enough room on the graphs themselves to add in "@ passive" or "@ Load". But I will have to wait for Jim on that oneQuote

I misread the latter text and thought that it was still passive when OCed.Quote
