EVERCOOL HPK-10025EA INTRODUCTION
There is no shortage of high performance CPU coolers on the market today. The vast majority of them have one thing in common; they are huge. This is not an issue for most performance PC enthusiasts with large, roomy cases. However, with microATX motherboards available that rival their full sized brethren in features and abilities, a growing subset of the market is opting for smaller, more compact chassis' with their inherent space limitations. So, whom do these SFF enthusiasts turn to for performance cooling options?
Well, Evercool has a low profile cooler that goes by the rather cumbersome moniker of HPL-815. (For the purposes of this review, I'm going to call it the HPL to save myself some typing.) With an installed height of 45mm (that's 1.75-inches folks,) compatibility for both AMD and Intel platforms and an 80mm fan with PWM functionality, the HPL will be very attractive to its target market. If the performance is there. Evercool has been kind enough to send us an example for evaluation, so please follow along as we put this low profile, four ‘pipe cooling solution through its paces.
