Evercool HPL-815 and Transformer 3 ReviewPosted on 2011-10-21 11:35:21 by Thomas De Maesschalck
The Transformer 3 is a budget, tower cooler that is compatible with pretty much everything that's still laying around today, and does a pretty good job at cooling for what it's worth. On the other side, the HPL-815 is a very low profile, space saving design where its overall application is not going to be overclocked very much, if at all. This is a cooler that I would put into a 1.5U or 2U rackmount if I still wanted slightly lower temperatures, or an HTPC that I have in a mini-ITX case that's literally not much bigger than a DVD ROM drive. Even though the HPL-815 "failed" the overclocked load test, it'd still be something good to have if it's ever needed.
