packs quite a lot into the box. You get a set of mounting hardware
for installing the fan controller, a universal mounting bracket
for installing the Hyper 6, a bag of screws and thermal paste, a
folded instruction manual and finally the Hyper 6 itself.
fan CoolerMaster provides is a clear 80mm fan. Powered by a 4-pin
molex connector, the fan is rated at 0.24A at 12V. No information
on rated airflow was available, though we estimate airflow to be
a little higher than CoolerMaster's Neon LED fan. The fan comes
with a RPM monitor which you attach to the CPU fan header on your
motherboard. The fan's RPM can be controlled by a potentiometer,
which directly controls the amount of airflow and noise, though
the potentiometer doesnt turn off the fan totally, but rather slows
the fan down at its lowest setting of about 1900 RPM or so. You
have the option of mounting the controller either in a spare PCI
slot, or am open 3.5" bay. CoolerMaster provides the necessary
mounting equipment for this.
folded instruction manual CoolerMaster provides comes in nine languages,
and provides clear instructions throughout. One nitpick with this
particular inclusion is that the accompanying illustrations and
pictures are much too small to be of any real use.
