The bundle isn’t bad, and you get everything needed for installing the Hyper Z600 cooler in your system. As the pictures reveal, no fan is included, and this is because the Hyper Z600 is mainly designed to passively cool the CPU and a cooler of this size should be able to fulfill that objective. But to please the hardware enthusiast who needs more performance, Cooler Master has made it possible to install one or two 120mm fans on the large cooler with the bundled brackets. We’ll get back to these later.
Specifications: The Cooler Master Hyper Z600’s specifications are as follows:
The Cooler Master Hyper Z600 supports a wide variety of processor series, so it should be possible to install in most people’s systems. The size and weight is a different story however. Hyper Z600 is not a small cooler, more like huge. Besides being physically big, the Hyper Z600 weighs a whopping 1045g or “just above 1kg” as most people will say, and that cannot be called light weight. This will stress the area around the CPU socket on the motherboard a lot. The thought of having 1kg of deadweight hanging from the CPU socket doesn’t get any better if you plan on using fans, which easily gets the total weight boosted to around 1300g.
The product: Let’s have a look at how the Hyper Z600 cooler has been designed. Starting from the top down we see the same logo on the top that was printed on the box. The top is made from thin aluminum and has the Cooler Master logo placed in the center of a chrome grill.
Looking at the side of the Hyper Z600 cooler, it’s possible to look closer at how the cooling fins and heatpipes has been placed. At the top 20 aluminum fins, which is a bit thicker than what undersigned is used to see on CPU coolers. This could explain the weight, but also means that the fins are harder to bend or get damaged. Below the 20 fins, 8 smaller fins have been placed with a bit less space between each other, and still the same thickness. The small fins are surrounded by the 2 biggest heatpipes. In total Cooler Master has fitted 6 heatpipes, where the centered 4 goes through all the fins and the two large ones at the sides only go through the large fins.
All heatpipes start off at the base of the Hyper Z600 cooler. The base is protected by a piece of plastic, which must be removed before installation.
