Review: Cooler Master TPC 812

Unboxing, Packaging and Accessories:

We see the usual packaging from Cooler Master. At least something very familiar. The packaging is well done. The box is keeping it's shape thanks to the foam cushion that hold the parts on the inside. On the outside we see Cooler Master's new jubilee color schema with some typical and useful product advertisements and information displayed. Everything is detailed and supported with images and graphics.

When opening the box we find the cooler and the accessories neatly organized and space optimized stored away. The foam surrounding the cooler protects it as well as keeping the shape of the box in tact. The accessories are in a separate box located in front of the cooler.

Let's have a closer look at what's inside and see what we have here.

All the accessories for a full installation are included. The kit provides a variety of mounting options for the more recent AMD and Intel CPU sockets. Cooler Master depracticated some of the older sockets. We noted that the Intel socket LGA 775 is still supported but that is as far back as it goes. No longer supported are the older AMD sockets like 754, 939, 940, nor the older Intel socket like the 478. Cooler Master included it's own Thermal paste.

Universal Items:

  • 4x Fan brackets
  • 1x Backplate
  • 1x Retention Plate
  • 4x Fan screws
  • 4x stand-offs
  • 1x Nut setter
  • 4x Nuts
  • 1x Thermal Paste
  • 4x Fan Foam padding
  • 1x Silent Mode fan adapter

AMD Set:

  • N/A

Intel Set:

  • 1x Intel socket LGA 2011 screw kit

The mounting kit is almost completely interchangeable between the two manufacturers. There are very few pieces that are only used for one side and not for the other which is great because it keeps the amount of parts relatively low. This also great because it makes installation that much easier. The motherboard will have to be removed for installation.

Cooler Master provides 2 installation manuals. One for each Intel and AMD. Both manuals are stored in the accessories box and are kept in a fold-out map style. The installation manuals contain instructions and various visual queues. The instructions are clear and easy to understand. The manuals support multiple languages. The manual and a product sheet are also available on Cooler master's website.
