This time we tested the Hyper 101 CPU cooler from Cooler Master, which has a tower heatsink, two heatpipes and an 80-mm fan. Check it out!
Cooler Master sells three versions of this product: the Hyper 101A, which fits only AMD processors, the Hyper 101i, for Intel socket LGA775 and 1155/1156 CPUs, and the Hyper 101 Universal, which includes clips for both platforms. It also can be found with two kinds of fan, one with PWM speed control and another without this feature. The version we are reviewing is the Hyper 101 Universal with PWM fan.
The Hyper 101 box is small, with a window at the front where you can see part of the cooler, as you can check in Figure 1.
In Figure 2, you can see what comes inside the box: a thermal compound tube, manual, the cooler itself and installation clips. It also comes with the hardware necessary to install a second fan.
In Figure 3, you can see the Cooler Master Hyper 101.
