MODTHEBOX reviewed the Vantec VP4-C7040 Aeroflow CPU Cooler :
CPU coolers have experienced radical changes over the past few years, with new technologies increasing performance, one key element of CPU cooler design has remained consistent. Ball and sleeve bearing fans have always been incorporated in every design. While standard fans do provide adequate cooling, the actual design of the fan creates an airflow “dead zone” immediately below the center of the fan, due to the mounting of the fan’s motor. CPU coolers need to focus air on the center of the core they are cooling, and the newly designed tip-magnetic driving fans are designed to do just that; focus the majority of the exhaust at the center point of the airflow. Vantec has incorporated this new design into their latest cooler, the AeroFlow. Today in the MTB Labs, we’ll see if this new technology brings extra performance benefits to an already highly tuned CPU cooler market.
