Obviously CPU coolers are critical to keeping things cool in your computer system.  Ever run a CPU without a heatsink?  We have.  And trust us, we highly recommend avoid it.  While CPU heatsinks come in a variety of shapes and sizes, there are some commonalities among them, and we often see products being revised or tweaked to try to improve things.  Sometimes the improvements are to increase performance or ease of use, and other times they may lower costs.  Today we’re interested in the former.

When we originally reviewed the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus and TX3 heatsinks, we found them to be quite impressive, but not without a couple issues, the most significant of which was the mounting methods.  The performance of these coolers wasn’t an issue, but the usability needed a bit of work.  Lo and behold, not long afterward, Cooler Master made a few minor design modifications to address those very concerns.

We were eager to look at the revisions, and today we’re doing just that.  We’re not expecting any earth-shattering changes here, as these coolers are very good to begin with, but we’re hoping these modifications are an improvements nonetheless, either in terms of performance or ease of use.  Let’s take a closer look at the Hyper 212 Plus and TX3 revisions.

Thanks go Cooler Master for supplying the review samples.
