Like its larger 812 variation, TPC 612 utilizes vertical vapor chambers in conjunction with heatpipes to enhance cooling performance. With the two technologies working in tandem, TPC 612 is ready to handle the massive heat released by your processor during intensive tasks such as overclocking and benchmarking. A specially designed aluminum fin structure and fan mounting bracket makes TPC 612 an excellent thermal solution that is both effective and easy to work with.



TPC 612 combines vertical vapor chambers with the time-tested effectiveness of traditional heatpipes. The synergy between the two cooling methods provide accelerated thermal transfer and heat dissipation.

Vapor chambers house a special coolant that changes from a liquid to gas when heated. The vaporized coolant then condenses on cold surfaces such as the aluminum fins where thermal transfer and dissipation quickly occur.



The natural ability of copper to effectively transfer heat is fully utilized in TPC 612 as it features a 100%, pure polished copper base to maximize thermal transfer between the CPU and cooler.

The TPC 612 fin structure is laid out in a special way to ensure concentrated intake and delivery of cool air directly to the heatsink area.

4 out of 5 eggsGood buy if used within limits

Pros: Well built and looks good. Keeps my i5-4690K under 70 C under stress and 28 C idle @ 4.5 Ghz. 4 pin PWM fan that is quiet.

Cons: Missing a part but I made do and was able to complete the build. I will contact Cooler Master for a replacement if the process is easy.

Other Thoughts: Vertical vapor chambers so it needs to be mounted to a motherboard that is horizontal like the Cooler Master HAF XB EVO I used.

I don't aggressively overclock so I preferred this somewhat smaller cooler over a dual fan style cooler.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat, but not

Pros: Looks great. Solid build quality. Mounting hardware seems solid and better than other CoolerMaster coolers I've used.

Cons: The backplate is supposed to have 'backplate screws' with it, already attached to the backplate, not as separate pieces. Mine didn't. I requested a replacement part from CoolerMaster and my request is still 'waiting for approval'. Not to mention that the part request form is ridiculous on CoolerMaster's site. I could not upload a 900KB jpg image, which is supposed to be OK.

Other Thoughts: Super fast shipping from Newegg, as always.

I've liked every other CoolerMaster product I've ever used. This is my first time needing support from them, and they are failing miserably. It should not take a week to approve shipping a missing part for a brand new product.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Wyatt,

4 out of 5 eggsCoolermaster TPC 612

Pros: - Better than stock Intel Cooler for hot Haswell CPUs
- ~$30 after rebate - cheaper than 212 EVO - rebate gives it an extra egg.
- Easy installation

Cons: - Not a great solution for OC'ing, but with Haswell I have yet to see a great solution short of custom water.
- Rubber Cougar fan mounts did not work - had to use CM screws included with heat sink

Other Thoughts: Build:
i7-4770k @ 3.9ghz (Hackintosh)
Gigabyte z87-ud4h
COUGAR CF-V12HP x4 (total: 6 case fans + 2 cooler fans)
NZXT Source 210 Elite Case
Antec 850w PSU
I used Arctic Silver 5 rather than the grease included with the unit to get a clearer comparison between stock and the TPC 612. If I get inspired I'll try the CM paste, but I doubt that'll do much better.

Prime95 small FFTs temps with stock cooler after 1 minute:
Die1-4: 99
Heatsink: 91
Stock at idle: 33

Prime95 small FFTs temps with TPC 612 after 10 minutes:
Die 1-4: 89
Heatsink: 79
TPC 612 at idle: 29

It took almost 10 minutes to reach 90 degrees with the TPC 612, while with the stock cooler it shot up past 95 within a minute.

It looks like this will keep temps about 10 degrees cooler than stock, which should be fine for most of my tasks, which max out at low end video rendering and music production.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat heatsink/fan

Pros: using this cooler on a intel 4770k running intel burn test 10x keeps it suprisingly very cool and that's good enough for me to give this 5 stars.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: the price may be a little high but it's definitely one of the better air coolers you can buy

5 out of 5 eggsGood choice

Pros: This heat sink/fan combo from Cooler Master is great. You can tell it's very high quality from the moment you pull it out of the box. Very well made and impressive design. Strong cooling even at low RPMs.

Cons: This uses a 120mm fan so it is large. Make sure you have room. It can be a tight fit in mid-towers. Just make sure to check the full dimensions before buying! 5.28 x 3.82 x 6.36 inches.

Install took some time because I had to remove the motherboard to put on the back plate and attach with metal screws but it is completely worth it so that you don't have to deal with those unreliable plastic push pins.

Other Thoughts: Raidmax Smilodon Dirk Tooth mid tower but it does fit. I have a Core i7 3770k running overclocked at 3.9 GHz. This product keeps the CPU core at an amazing 43°C under max load. The fan speed goes up to 2,000 rpm and at full load its running in the 900s. Overall it's a very solid fit and dissipates the heat very well. This is especially great since my cpu heated up to 82°C with my old fan that had to be replaced immediately. If you check the dimensions and it fits your case, I highly recommend this.

4 out of 5 eggsWas in market for H.Evo 212, Glad I Picked This Up

Pros: I had an Corsair H60 all-in-one LCS but it crapped out on me after less than a year. This product keeps temperatures better and is quieter. (I make this comparison because they are the only two after-markets used on this build and are similar in price.)

I was hesitant because there are very few reviews online and while most are very positive, some complained about high temperatures. On the other hand the Hyper Evo 212 is well reviewed and highly regarded. My experience is that this is a high quality product (Cooler Master is a top-notch pedigree in my regards) that performs extraordinarily well - especially for a passive cooling system. I would be surprised if the 212 performs any better. With rebate it cost $6 more than the 212 and I would make the purchase again (but would probably reconsider at the retail price-tag, read CONS for reason why...).

The cooler keeps my 3.2 GHz CPU overclocked at 3.8 GHz at around 65-70° C under Prime95 full load. This may seem high, and it kind of is, but it is quiet and the cool-down period is phenomenal with a drop from 70 to 40° C in less than 30 seconds. With an overclocked system (CPU, GPU, and memory) and playing BF3 (memory and CPU running at around 90% on average) for hours it never exceeds 55° C. Typically the build idles at 32° C.

For the price this is a great product and I would recommend this to any gamer running mid-entry single GPU builds. If you're doing something more CPU intensive (graphics rendering, for example) or have quad-GPU monstrosities you should probably spend more $ and use an LCS. (I recommend a custom Koolance LCS - I've had horrible experiences with all-in-one pump quality).

Installation wasn't an issue but my case allows access to MOBO backplane. If your case does not you will have to remove it for installation.

Cons: The "vapor-chamber" is mostly a gimmick and here's why. Once enough thermal energy (heat) is absorbed the liquid phase-changes into a vapor (vaporization) and rises to the top of the chamber. As thermal energy is removed it phase-changes into a much cooler liquid (condensation) were the liquid drains to the bottom of the cooler where more thermal energy can be absorbed and the process repeated.

This is all well-and-good and is probably very effective - WHEN THE COOLER IS INSTALLED VERTICALLY - that is, with the CPU below the cooler where the cooled fluid can drain and make full and direct contact with the CPU plate.

If the cooler is installed horizontally to the CPU with one half of the chamber higher than the other (as will be the case for most builds), the fluid drains to the lower half of the chamber bypassing the CPU entirely and basically keeping the lower half of the chamber cooler than the top half and absorbing much less heat from the CPU.

You can verify this yourself with a temperature laser gun.

It is for this reason I'm docking one egg.

Other Thoughts: I installed a second fan for "push-pull" configuration which slightly impeded my RAM (the stick required a slight tilt). I then tested the configuration with the stock "pull" fan configuration.

There was marginal difference with the push-pull configuration and the "push" fan was better used at the top of my case where it can blow over my RAM (and not impede it...).

5 out of 5 eggsworks well

Pros: I installed this on my I7 4770k, keeps my temps low. Stock clock temps are 25*C idle and around 45 load . Overclocked to 4.4 ghz and with prime 95 running it maxed out 80*C , pretty impressive for an air cooler. If you install and have high temps double check the thermal paste application and tightness.

Cons: Blocked the first memory slot on an EVGA z87 motherboard, but you can just set up the fan to pull config to fix that.

3 out of 5 eggsVapor chamber is a big fail

Pros: Shiny heatsink.
Small size that fit a X79 setup with high heatsink memory.

Cons: Avg cooling performance.
Not efficient compare to HDT heatsink like 212 Evo.
Vapor chamber doesn't work in most tower case. It only works with horizontal placed motherboard(like HAF XB)

Other Thoughts: 4930K OC 4.5GHz
TPC 612 -Won't boot(Overheat)
120XL -65 C

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible

Pros: wasn't hard to install like what some people said.

Cons: my 8320 at stock settings hit 60+ C before I shut down my prime 95. The stock cooler which came with the 8320 cooled better than this. stock never went past 45 C

Other Thoughts: Don't buy. buy the 212 and save yourself time and money

Manufacturer Response:

Dear valued customer,
I'm very sorry for the troubles you had with your TPC 612. First and foremost: I would try re-seating the cooler. Its a 200W TDP cooler with vapor chambers inside and should have better overall performance over the 212 EVO and certainly the stock cooler on an AMD FX-8320 CPU. I would then verify than the fan on the cooler is working normally, especially with PWM function to increase speeds as the CPU gets warmer.

If you're having any troubles with the mounting or have any questions, please come talk to us directly using the Contact Us link below.
