All temperature charts are sorted with lowest load temperatures at the top.
With our 7700K locked in at 4GHZ, results actually look pretty promising. The 212 Black edition came in a whopping 3 and a half degrees cooler than even the Dark Rock Pro 4, and easily outpaced both the MA410P and MA410M.
This is really impressive to see considering its smaller size, and lower price when compared to the Dark Rock Pro 4, and a lot of the 240mm AIO coolers previously tested.
This wasn’t really the case when overclocking though when our 7700K hit full load at 4.5GHz. The 212 did start to move up our list with higher temperatures at both idle, and load than most AIO coolers tested, but it’s by no means the worst cooler listed, again still outperforming both previously tested cooler master air coolers.
Noise levels also pretty good with the 212 sitting middle of the road, basically on par with the MA410P. This kind of makes sense when considering both the 212, and MA410P are so similar in size and looks, and also feature a single 120mm fan.
