Conclusions:


Now everyone knows that this cooler is NOT an overclocking option. It is a very quiet alternative for the people that do not care about overclocking or may do some very minor overclocking. This cooler is made for server/small private computer applications and for the efficient cooling of CPUs in cramped, small rackmounts, and/or the miniATX cases entering the market today. I am pleased with the finish of this product and will seriously have to ponder removing it from my system. It's just so quiet and the performance isn't that bad to boot. Once this cooler was installed and my case fans were shut off, I noticed my ears ringing. Now this began to worry me seeing the ringing was more apparent in my left ear which corresponds to where my computer sits. The ringing has now subsided and makes me wonder about the effects to a person's hearing after being exposed to a delta for 8 months. Never Again!!!! Never Ever Again!!!



Pro's:


-Quiet
-Amazing mirror polish on the base
-Low Profile
-Made from one complete piece of copper
-Excellent Cooling Efficiency for the Size
-Great Quality


Con's:


-needs a slightly higher cfm fan
-not meant for overclocking



OVERALL SCORE: 8/10 (TWEAKNEWS RECOMMENDED!!!!)
