About this deal

It doesn’t matter if you’re a student on a tight budget, a graphic designer that’s brand new to building, or a veteran modder of high-end gaming PCs; we offer components to inspire creative freedom in everyone.

In this review, we’ll take an in-depth look into both coolers and compare each of their features, and even drill down into some performance numbers to see if there is any difference between the two fan types. The amazing performance you’d get in an inexpensive package is what has kept system builders coming back build after build. We know that components are carefully chosen based on performance, functionality, and aesthetic preference. The brushed aluminum panel added to the top of the cooler adds a few points to the overall quality look and feel of the cooler, something the previous generations of Hyper 212 coolers lacked.There has been a healthy demand for dark or blacked out components for stealthy system builds lately. At idle, the noise measurement app recorded an average noise level of 45dB, while the ambient noise level of the test bench's surroundings (with the test bench switched off) was measured to be around 45dB as well.

No surprise that the RGB edition produced slightly better results than the non-RGB version as it does come equipped with a slightly more powerful fan. I've applied a thin layer of thermal paste using the spreader that comes with the XTM150 to evenly distribute it on the IHS.

For the uninformed, the AMD AM4 and AM5 platforms share the same mounting mechanism for CPU coolers - you can install most AM4 coolers on AM5 CPUs, and vice versa.The Hyper 212 lineup has roots going back to the original cooler’s release in 2009 (which did an awesome job cooling my Q6600 back in the day). The fan mounts used to attach the fan to the heatsink are another difference between the two coolers. Both the fins and the heat pipes are coated in a dark nickel coating giving the cooler its stealthy look. Your personality is embedded in each of those choices, transcending from hardware to an immersive, custom-built experience. The Silencio FP120 features exclusive Silent Driver IC technology which reduces noise and power output.

The all-black version (model RR-212S-20PK-R1) presents a more stealthy appearance, and those who are not looking for the RGB experience will likely opt for that model instead. The New SF120R RGB Fan – Certified to sync with Motherboard RGB software or controlled by our controller. This decreases heat transfer time and material which, in turn, makes for lower CPU temperatures overall.

The primary heat exchanger features 4 embedded copper heat pipes (Ø6mm) in flat array, and includes additional aluminium fins with lateral grooves upon the plate to further augment thermal conductivity. While power consumption is doubled in the RGB fan, it’s likely due to the power required to run the LEDs, rather than the fan itself drawing that much power.

Moving over to the bottom of the cooling tower assembly, we see that the Hyper 212 Halo Black features four direct-contact heat pipes that are painted black so as to match the rest of the cooling tower’s appearance.Stacked fin arrays ensure the least airflow resistance, which allows cooler air to flow into the heatsink. The fan blade design inspired by helicopters, it pack more force into the space in front of the fan. The RGB Black Edition includes everything found in the non-RGB version with the addition of the RGB LED controller. provided by a single Silencio fan located at the top of the unit, the same fan we recently saw on Cooler Master’s new Hyper 212 Black Edition CPU cooler.
