Guru3D reviews five heatpipe based CPU coolers from Noctua, CoolerMaster , Tuniq, OCZ and Coolink. Over the past month or six several new heatpipe based coolers where introduced onto the market. And I already can disclose this .. not one single cooler was doing a below average result.
So for this test they decided to go a little more extreme. They crank up the usual system requirements a notch by using a fairly high-end PC as we take a Core 2 Duo Q6600 Quad Core processor and then overclock it to 3600 MHz to see how well these coolers still do.
