Cooler Master rolled out two new coolers this week; the Hyper 212X and the Hyper Hyper TX3i. The new coolers reportedly feature an easier upgrade process, they are made using a new manufacturing process and promise better cooling performance than their predecessors.
A quick comparison of the new Hyper 212X with the old model reveals the heatsinks have exactly the same dimensions and weight. One key difference is the different fan, the new 212X uses a more silent fan that pushes less air. The TX3i has the same length and width as the TX3, but a 3mm smaller height profile. Just like the new 212X, the TX3i also features a new fan with lower maximum airflow level and a lower noise level.
Cooler Master, a leading manufacturer of desktop components and peripherals, today announced the Hyper 212X and Hyper TX3i air CPU coolers. Building on its Hyper 212 and Hyper TX3 predecessors Cooler Master focused on the ease of upgrading, ensuring that simple upgrades are completed with ease allowing system builders to focus on more complex aspects. The Hyper 212X is a universally compatible cooler. It's an ideal upgrade for improving the performance and noise levels in a PC, from a gamer who begins playing more intense games, to the overclocker who wants to achieve better clock speeds or the PC builder who needs a quieter environment.
The Hyper TX3i is an Intel compatible cooler, a simple and affordable upgrade for a stock cooler, or for a CPU that comes with no heat sink. Quiet, reliable, and still able to achieve impressive temperatures the TX3i is simple to fit with a push pin configuration, and compact enough to fit in most chassis with ease. Not happy to sit back and applaud the success of its 212 and TX3 coolers, Cooler Master continued to update the manufacturing process, from essential heat pipe soldering methods, to how Cooler Master packaged the cooler and fittings. The overall experience has been improved, not only bringing better temperatures, but also a more quick and simple fitting process.
Here's the new Hyper 212X:
And this is the updated Hyper TX3i:
Cooler Master says the suggested retail pricing is 29.50EUR (excl. VAT) for the Hyper 212X and 18.50EUR (excl. VAT) for the Hyper TX3i.
