Bright Side of News has taken a look at five processor coolers from ThermalRight, GELID, Titan, Zalman and Cogage. You can check out the report over here.
Many people underestimate the value of a good cooler until it’s already too late and they’ve suffered some kind of a failure or problems. The importance of a high quality and high performance fan is most notable when users begin to try to overclock their systems which cause the system to generate even more heat. In other cases, there are situations in which a stock cooler [especially one on Intel Core processors] just isn't enough to cool down the processor in a badly thermally designed enclosure. Once overheating or throttling occurs, there is a certain threshold that most CPUs are capable of withstanding until the processor becomes unstable..
