Installation: In our test, we’ve used two of Cooler Masters own 120mm LED fans, with the following specifications for each fan:
To mount fans on the Hyper Z600, the bundled plastic brackets must be used. Two brackets must be used for each fan, and the brackets are screwed on the fans like when installing a fan in a case. Self-cutting screws for this is bundled as well. When the bracket is mounted, it will look like this:
And when both fans are mounted, with the motherboard installed in the Pc, it looks like this:
Again, it would be wrong to claim that the Hyper Z600 isn’t taking much space. With two fans mounted, the cooler completely dominates the case and there’s not much space between the case rear fan and the rear fan on the Hyper Z600. The front fan on the Hyper Z600 cooler is blowing while the rear is sucking. Now that everything has been installed, we’re ready to see how the Hyper Z600 will perform in our test.
The test: In the testing of the Cooler Master Hyper Z600 CPU cooler, we will be using an Intel Core2Duo E8400 CPU in both idle and load situations. Besides that, the cooler will be tested at different fan speeds and in passive mode. The Cooler Master Hyper Z600 CPU cooler will be tested in a system consisting of:
To be able to compare the different coolers, they’ve all been tested with Arctic cooling MAX-2 cooling paste. The different fan speeds is based on the use of one 120mm fan set to blow through the cooler.
