Cooler Master has a history of “firsts” in the market, and the TPC 812 does it again. The Cooler Master TPC 812 is the first retail CPU cooler available using a combination of the more common heatpipes along with vertical vapor chambers for enhanced heat dissipation. At first glance the TPC 812 may look like a standard full sized tower cooler using six 6mm heat pipes. A closer look, however, reveals two large vertical vapor chambers rising out of the nickel plated copper base and through the aluminum fins, each of which offers over three times the fin contact of a standard heat pipe. More contact results in better transfer, which all adds up to far better heat dissipation.
