In this review we are interested in liquid-cooling systems which are generally more expensive than air coolers but have one important advantage over them. We mean that the heat-absorbing and heat-dissipating elements are separated in a water-based cooler. You have surely seen the latest models of air super-coolers which have a considerable weight and size and a fan with a diameter of 80-90 or even 120mm! Sometimes there are even two fans installed. Such a gigantic design helps improve the cooling efficiency. The performance gets higher while the noise remains at the same or lower level than with the coolers for processors of earlier generations..You can check out the comparison over here.
