Cooler Master TPC812 cooler

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 

Good news for die-hard air cooling enthusiasts.  CM TPC812 makes its debut at CES and probably marks the next progression of air cooling.  It has six 6mm heatpipes and a vapour chamber unit.  With a single fan, it beats Corsair H80 by about 2 degrees when cooling an 8-core CPU.

Vertical Vapor Chamber - Cooler Master TPC-812

Quote:
The TPC812 promises to provide high performance, thanks to its two vertical vapor chambers. Vapor chambers use a technology similar to heatpipes, but are flat instead of cylindrical. In fact, this is the first CPU cooler we’ve seen using this configuration. Additionally, the TPC812 will have eight U-shaped, nickel-plated heatpipes. The base is made of copper, while the fins are made of aluminum. Cooler Master was demonstrating the performance of this cooler against the Corsair H80, which is a liquid cooling solution, and both are achieving similar performance. (As a matter of fact, the TPC812 was two degrees Celsius cooler.) The TPC812 is expected to reach the market in the second quarter of this year with a suggested price of USD 70.

watched the video on youtube, just to make things clear, the corsair h80 was tested with a single fan (don't ask me why rolleyes.gif ). also, we don't know what speed was the h80 running at, the performance difference between each preset level is about 2-3'c, so can't really draw too much from this little preview just yet.

iirc a vapor chamber basically works the same as a copper pipe, but it's shaped to cover the base. seems like a good thing, and I read somewhere that unit will be in the $100 range, but that was probably msrp. However since its Coolermaster, I wouldnt be surprised if it were priced a bit more aggressively. My guess it will be $70-90ish.

In a Youtube video, the CM rep at CES mentioned a price of US$69.99.  But he also mentioned that this is an advanced prototype only and there will be further refinements in the final retail version. The ETA is March.

 

Usually the price of a product reflects its performance to a large degree.  So, if it can beat H80 by 2-3C and H80's MSRP is $115 but actually sells at $90, then a price of $70 makes this a huge bargain.  But I think this TPC 812 might sell at $100 (which is slightly more than a H80's)

 

Even if it sells at $100, it still looks like a bargain (smaller though) because that vapor chamber unit alone costs about four heatpipes. This is how expensive vapor chamber is.  CM can sell the TPC 812 at such a 'low' price of $100 because they must have received a huge discount for buying a large quantity of these units for their OEM business.

CM has said that the price is $69.99. Which is great for what it can do. Plus it does look great.
2:42 says the price. He mentioned the $109 price for the H80.
