After the 612 Stealth recently had to prove itself on the testbench, the big brother now follows. Find out how the block does in the article below:
Packaging and scope of delivery
The box is similar to the smaller cooler down to the last detail, but it is much bigger. A large product picture on the front is complemented by an exploded view with brief descriptions on the back, the pages with the typical Cooler Master purple then provide information about the technical specifications.
And when it comes to transport protection, we once again pull out all the stops to ensure safe delivery. Three cartons are sprung from the inside and additionally again on the outside by thick foam. Even the fans are individually wrapped again. If something arrives here bent out of shape, then you really need to be kinder to your mailman in the future.
In the accessory box you will find a 4-pin PWM splitter as well as thermal paste and a simple screwdriver. Why, if you already use an extra box with individual compartments, everything has to be bagged again, is beyond me.
As a special extra there is a third fan in 120mm size, which according to the description should be installed as case fan. However, I would speculate that most buyers of air coolers in this price range should already be relatively well equipped. It doesn’t do any harm, but making the cooler 5 euros cheaper and saving the fan would also have been a welcome option.
Assembly and installation
One relies here again on an own backplate for Intel and AMD sockets. Four small threads are fixed in the backplate with plastic clips and pushed through the mainboard from behind. The spacers are then screwed onto the front, which in turn have the two brackets placed on them and screwed tight. The process is identical to the 614, although the brackets are slightly larger.
The whole thing is also available in video form:
Fewer small parts would be desirable as always, but with the motherboard in place, installation should be straightforward.
Below is the overview of the technical details, more information can be found on the manufacturer’s website.
