Overall, the Cooler Master Hyper 612 V2 has impressed us. It beat out the competition in our thermal tests, keeping temperatures incredibly low, even under load conditions.
We always run our acoustic tests with the fan set to 100% speed, this helps us eliminate any inaccuracies during automatic PWM adjustments. However, real world results are often just as important to our readers, which is why we included the PWM controlled result as well.
We found that under normal usage conditions, the cooler managed to stay relatively quiet, even under full CPU load.
Installing a CPU cooler can be a frustrating job at times. However, the mounting process for the Hyper 612 V2 was one of the best I have encountered and was incredibly easy to work with.
The Cooler Master Hyper 612 V2 will launch on the 30th of September for £34.99, a very good price given the sheer cooling performance. However, it will face stiff competition from other highly rated products in this price sector- such as the Thermaltake Frio 14, which we reviewed recently.

KitGuru Says: The Cooler Master Hyper 612 V2 delivers solid performance at a low price. It might not be at the top of our shortlist but it is definitely a cooler worth considering.
