Today I am going to be taking a look at a new kind of budget orientated cooler. It is dubbed the Hyper 103. It features a 92mm fan and three DCH heat pipes which are otherwise known as Direct Contact Heatpipes. It’s compatible with all of the latest sockets although I can’t imagine such a cooler being used to cool a £250+ CPU. Either way, it may surprise us and be a very decent cooler for the money, just like the 212+ and EVO were. They actually performed very close to my Noctua NH-D14 on an i5-3570K and cost more or less a third of the price.
Will the Hyper 103 be able to carry on a low budget legacy which its bigger brother(s) set in the past? Is this a cooler worth considering if you’re on a seriously tight budget? There’s only one way to find out and with that being said, that’s enough waffling… let’s open up the box and then get to grips with the cooler to find out how it really does in our testing.
