Cooler Master Hyper T4 CPU cooler

Computer build deal roundup

Keeping your system running cool is vital for the health and longevity of your PC, as excessive heat can degrade and damage components over time, which hurts performance and costs you more money in the long run.

The Cooler Master Hyper T4’s universal mounting system is compatible with the latest AMD AM4 socket, as well as most other current AMD and Intel sockets. Four heat pipes pull heat directly away from your CPU, and the 120mm fan can be fine-tuned for customized cooling performance. Note that after March 17, the current $25 sale price will expire which will bring the Hyper T4 up to $15 after the mail-in rebate, but that’s still a solid deal on a quality CPU cooler.
