Hyper 612S

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I wont to know if someone else besides my has this problem. I had Xigmatek Gaia fantastic budget cooler. So i wanted to clock my FX 6100 a bit higher. I bought Hyper 612S thinking " hm its almost twice the size of Gaia, it shoud perform better". So, what happned ?? I sold Gaia and bought Hyper 612S for twice the price of my used Ggaia .And after installed it, i was ***** shocked !!! I didnt get any better temps with Hyper !!! I was testing Gaia with Cooler Master 12cm fan witch pushes more air then stock Xigmatek cooler ( ist 1500 rpm ), so it is 2 or 3C better then stock Gaia. But i got same temp with Gaia with 12cm fan @ 2000 rpm and Hyper with 1250 rpm. Its like day and night difference in nose, but not in cooling. One may think if i install 2000 rpm fan on Hyper, that temps will go down. But the funny part is, when i was under Cinebench, i put my hand on heat pipes of Hyper, and they where not warm at all !! So im thinking that Hyper has poor heat transfer and higher rpm fan wouldnt make much of difference becouse Hypers giant heat sink tower is almost cold to tuch. CPU was @ 71C, cores @ 59C, voltage was 1.48V. One would think that heat sink shoud be warm to tuch if CPU is on 70C, and this one isnt. I suspect that Hyper has very bad heat transfer trough heat pipes. Gaia @2000 rpm and same CPU settings was warm, not cold. I will test it with 2000RPM fan, but i highly suspect it will be any better. I would like to hear other experiences with this cooler.

I have a 612. It is not a good cooler. I am using a 212+ instead - it is better and smaller. I guess bigger is not necessarily better.

You might check that it is clamped down properly. If the rails are slightly bent it doesn't make good contact with the CPU.
