[Pro-Clockers] Cooler Master TPC 812 Vertical Vapor Chamber CPU Cooler Review

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
Review is up, kind of lacking but its the first one so far. Would be interesting to see a review where they test push-pull configuration.

Cooler Master is going back to the original concept of outperforming the next cooler. They are doing this by using two proven technologies together to achieve this goal. The two techs are heat pipes and vapor chambers. Each has two different processes to getting the job done. But does this combinations spell out a winner? We will see.

Wow, performance is pretty good. Wonder if an extra fan will drop the temps by more than 2 or 3c?

Also, that base doesn't look like "pure copper", it looks like it's plated with something... confused.gif

Nice Cooler...
Bravo coolermaster, finally the 212+ curse has been lifted. No more big massive tower coolers that perform below the competition.

Too bad it wasnt tested on bigger platform x79 or x58 too se the tdp it can handle. HAVIK is a coolerthat shouldnt be considerd weak, it plays with them big boys.

Nice find OP, i was searching for a review since its advertized all over the place. +rep for u sir

Been waiting for reviews of this to come out for awhile now. So far, it's looking like a good performer but it needs to be put up against the massive dual tower coolers (NH-D14, Silver Arrow, PH-TC14PE) and the Havik 140 to get a feel of its true performance.

Why anyone would buy a heatsink over any of the AIO closed loop solutions is beyond me. Personally, I'm waiting for CoolerMaster's Eisberg 360 to upgrade to ivy bridge.

Probably because price-to-performance and noise levels are generally much better for air coolers.

I really hate this kind of tests, when they have to make graphs with colors so similar to each other, like G3D in the past, its so annoying...mad.gif

While I love my H80 to death. There is the advantage with coolers like the Silver Arrow and the D14 in terms of noise / performance. I personally dished out for two Noiseblocker M12-S2s to mount on the H80, but at the D14's price, it's a force to be reckoned with.

Granted, the selling point for me on the H80 was close to D14 performance while keeping the case easy to work with around the CPU socket. Plus it's more aesthetically pleasing to my eyes.

Regardless though, there are reasons to go with the D14, SA or Phanteks TC14PE over closed loops and vice versa, it all depends on what the user deems most valuable in their own eyes. smile.gif

This is cool. Nice find subnet, thanks. I have also been eagerly awaiting review since I first heard about this. I probably won't change from my 212+ until I upgrade my system, which could be awhile. I'm more interested in how this new concept performs. I would like to see it tested against a larger field but, I guess I just have to be patient. It does seem like the next logical step in air cooling.

Although it's a pretty proven technology, I think some people, myself included, are still a little wary of introducing water to the inside of their cases. I think I would actually feel more comfortable with a custom loop so I could rest assured that all the tubing connections are solid since they would be done by me. If I had a closed loop, I would have a little voice in the back of my head telling me that I have the unit that got pushed through QC right before the guys lunch break and it's just a catastrophe waiting to happen. Just my thoughts though.

Corsair has a full system guarantee if you install one of their AIO coolers. If it leaks and destroys anything they'll replace it.... Which makes the AIO coolers much more trustworthy than a custom loop in my book.
