Cooler Master Hyper 212 + or Cooler Master V6 GT?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I need to know how the Hyper 212 + rates against CM V6 GT?

I did a search for this in this section of the forum with 6 resulted threads that don't say much just to say the V6 GT "it's better" - okay by how much though? What's the reality?biggrin.gif

Anyway this would be used on a Q6600 at stock speeds but want the option of overclocking this processor in the future so when notifying me on which is better please keep that in mind.

This processor was being cooled using a Zalman cnps9500 - the whole system is currently apart temporarily. The temps are mid 40's celcius idle and low to mid 60's celcius under load.

Thanks:)

I've read that the CM V6 GT is bulky and loud.
I have yet to read anything bad about the CM Hyper 212+ though.

Hyper 212+..... Can't beat the cooling vs pricing combination ...IMHO

The V6 is a better cooler, but comes off with a tradeoff of noise. Though I figure putting quieter fans like Gentle Typhoons on it would negate that and be pretty efficient in cooling/silence mix, but not enough to compete against say the top coolers.

I've used a 212 on a friends build. For £20, its the best dam cooler around!

Remember V6 the price is almost 2x of 212+

Remember you can further improve results of the CM Hyper 212+ by adding better fans in push/pull. Far cheaper than the competitors.

In short: The V6 is a more capable cooler, albeit at a higher cost. Though for the cheap $30 pricetag, the Hyper 212+ is hard to beat. Although, if you need that extra cooling the V6 may just be the next step for you.

Yeah I have to keep that in mind, but that chart and those temps are worse than using my Zalman cnps9500 though it's not the same processor and such. I wonder how a Q6600 would fare under that same test.

I'm wondering if my Zalman cnps9500 is as good as the ones I'm questioning.biggrin.gif
