Installation:
Installing a cooler of the Hyper Z600’s size might scare some people from buying it, but Cooler Masters installation method is relatively easy. First step is to mount the proper brackets on each side of the coolers base, depending on which socket the Hyper Z600 will be installed on.

It cannot come as a surprise that the Hyper Z600 cooler needs a back plate to distribute the coolers weight to a bigger surface on the motherboard. When the correct bracket and back plate has been chosen, you simply screw the pieces together and tighten it really good. The screws are tightened with nuts on the back of the motherboard, and between the back plate and nut, a rubber ring is placed to absorb vibrations.

If your tools is limited to a screw driver, Cooler Master as bundled a nut head for screwdrivers, that will fit on the used nuts.



Here we see the Hyper Z600 installed on the motherboard:



It would be wrong to conclude that the Hyper Z600 doesn’t take up much space on the motherboard, because it does. But even though it’s a pretty big cooler, there’s plenty of space around the CPU socket, so there shouldn’t be any problems with motherboard components etc.
The build quality of the brackets seems very good and solid, and they weigh a fair amount too.

Even though the installations method seems reliable, some people might still be a bit skeptic about the weight issue and possible motherboard damage, but according to Cooler Master there shouldn’t be any problems. They guarantee that the cooler will not damage the motherboard, and says that it will be possible to transport the case safely. Cooler Master also writes that the cooler has been tested in “extreme conditions” to guarantee safe use of the cooler.

I wanted to have this described in details, because I was a bit skeptic about the whole thing, and asked Cooler Master to describe these ”extreme conditions”. So here’s a little description of how the Hyper Z600 – and CPU coolers in general – is tested at Cooler Master to see if they live up to the standards.

When Cooler Master needs to test if a CPU cooler can be approved for use, it will be installed on a motherboard and then placed in a ”drop test” bench. Here, the motherboard will be dropped, at normal speed, up to 50 times horizontally, vertically and upside down – 50 times each. If the motherboard show signs of damage caused by the cooler, the tested cooler series will be scraped and never reach production.

If a new motherboard is used after each 50 drop test isn’t mentioned, but I feel a lot more safe having the Hyper Z600 cooler installed in the machine after learning a bit about Cooler Masters drop test. The below picture shows the mentioned drop test bench:



With this knowledge you’re able to conclude that the Hyper Z600 can be safely mounted in a Pc without any fear of cracked motherboards etc.
No fan’s has been bundled with the Hyper Z600, so the choice of these is up to the user if these are needed.
