A Closer Look


The cooler has a pretty straight forward design, with the 120mm fan being pre-installed on one side, although this is easily removed using the quick release clips on the side. The fan is the revised model, improving on the airflow and acoustics of the previous 212 model.

There’s a fairly tightly packed fin stack here, but with a slim tower design that should allow for virtually no conflicts with memory modules or motherboard VRM cooling.

There are four heat pipes that run through the contact block and pass through the tower in a “U” shape.

They come out of the top of the cooler a little bit, where you’ll also find a small Cooler Master logo stamped into the top fin.

Finally, we can see that the heat pipes at cut flat, creating a seamless direct contact surface. It’s a cheap but effective method and removes the need for a separate contact plate.
