When I first saw the TPC 812 I was impressed with its unique design and the use of Vertical vapor chambers as a way to get even more cooling power beyond typical heatpipes. After testing the TPC 812 I was left a little unimpressed with both is mounting design and its performance. To be fair the performance isn’t bad when you consider how much larger the 614 was, but I was expecting a little more from this unique design. One thing we weren’t able to put to the test was a push pull with the TPC 812, Cooler Master did include a second set of fan mounts to use with this though. This was a nice bonus. Add to that the fact that this is still a good performing heatsink with a good looking style it is still a heatsink to consider. But the price is going to be an important factor. At $66 it’s a little high, but as the price comes down slightly this could be a nice heatsink to pick up.

You might call him obsessed or just a hardcore geek. Wes's obsession with gaming hardware and gadgets isn't anything new, he could be found taking things apart even as a child.

A car guy at heart, the same things that draw him into tweaking cars apply when building good looking fast computers.
