Xtreme Gear HP-1216B CPU Cooler piles on the heatpipes

Most budget level heatsinks skimp on the features in order to get their price point in at where they need it to be. While they’re a great alternative to the stock heatsinks included with most processors they can’t exactly touch the performance of high-end coolers either.

The Xtreme Gear HP-1216B CPU Cooler tosses in five direct contact heatpipes and fin dimples as wells the possibility of adding a second fan…not bad for its low price tag. Legit Reviews has a look:

The HP-1216B comes with everything needed to mount the cooler up to your favorite socket from the AMD or Intel. It uses a universal mounting system that allows it to mount up to all of the Intel LGA sockets, the AMD 754/939/940 sockets and the newer AM2 and AM3 sockets. Also included are rubber fan mounts for two 120mm fans, and a rheostat style fan controller.

A good performer given its price although I’d like to see results with two fans on this cooler.
