Every once in awhile new tech, a new process, or a new material comes along and totally changes the way things are done. The innovation is so advanced that the rest of the industry must adapt or die. Recently Cooler Master, the well established cooling product company, released the TPC 812 air cooler with it’s latest innovation “vertical vapor chambers”. Is this new cooling technique the future of heat removal technology? Or is this just some new gimmick to convince potential customers to buy? Follow along as we find out!
The TPC 812 uses 2 separate cooling technologies to transfer heat â€“ heat pipes and vertical vapor chambers.
Ready for overclocking, benchmarking and silent cooling.
The first-ever CPU heatsink to use vertical vapor chamber technology.
100% pure polished copper base combined with improved soldering technologies for the best thermal transfer.
Special fin design heatsink receives concentrated cold airflow.
Improved air pressure design and fan mounting system.
If there is one thing to be sure of Cooler Master knows how to make a box. Mating a deep purple with chrome and black, they have certainly created something that looks very nice, and suggests that the product inside is going to be very nice as well.
On the front of the box we are presented with a picture of the cooler front and center. Below and left is the name of the product and a compatibility list. Beside that on the right is a brief description of what Cooler Master would like you to think of the cooler. All the lettering is done in chrome and is very flashy.
One side is basically a reiteration of the front while the other, and likely most important, contains the technical specifications:
Finally the back of the box has a listing of the features as listed above, but repeated in 8 languages. Also there is a small diagram on the bottom corner with the cooler’s dimensions.
Upon opening the box you will find only two things. One being a white box which contains all parts and accessories. The other is a nice foam enclosure containing the TPC 812 itself with the fan already installed.
