Cooler Master has revealed the second part of its exclusive limited edition "Black" bundle today, a modified Hyper Z600 "Black" CPU cooler.

The new cooler not only sports a new top-to-bottom black appearance - a first from Cooler Master - but the company claims that it has made some modifications that now make the Hyper Z600 "Black" is "the best performing CPU cooler on the market."

When we reviewed the original Hyper Z600 in October, we found that it was the highest-performing cooler we've tested with two fans in a push/pull arrangement. However, with just one fan, the Z600 was sat very much in the mid-table.

Cooler Master has supplied a single 120mm temperature-controlled fan with the Z600 Black, which uses a PWM to switch between 800 and 2,200 RPM depending on CPU load, and an airflow cover - or shroud - that is designed to minimise any airflow loss by forcing air over the fins.

The unit will only be available as part of the limited run of 500 "Black" bundles, which includes the Cosmos Black Edition case we've already talked about. Cooler Master says this new bundle will be released on December 11th, so there's not much longer to wait if you're looking to get your hands on one of these limited edition bundles.

What do you think about the changes to the cooler? Let us know in the forums.
