Cooler Master Hyper N620 - CPU Cooler Review Print E-mail

Coller Master Hyper N620PCWizKid puts to the test the Cooler Master Hyper N620.  This CPU cooler supports all current CPU sockets. Weighing s 847 grams and dimensions of 140.8 x 96.4 x 160.7 millimeters, its rather a larger cooler but for good reason. Two fans (800~2,000 rpm) blue LEDs sandwich the aluminum heatsink in the middle and provide a steady airflow. Heat is transferred to the aluminum fins via six copper heat pipes from the solid copper base that makes contact with the CPU.

The Hyper N620 is bigger, has faster fans and thus should keep things cooler than the Hyper N520 (which has 5 heatpipes and the Fans are not LED and a little slower).  For those using a CPU at stock values or casual overclocking the N520 would be a good choice, however the Hyper N620 has better potential for hard core overclockers looking to squeeze the most out of their CPU aswell as keeping the inside of the case looking hip and blue.
