Test: 25 CPU coolers
by Stephen Mounioloux
Published on May 3, 2005

Introduction

Despite the growing success of water-cooling or of less common cooling systems, air-cooling is still the most widespread system for our computers.

Our last 20 CPU cooler is now 18 months old and, faced with numerous new releases, we felt it was time to take stock of the market. The last time we carried out such a survey, we saw the release of new technologies such as Heat Pipes that carry heat more efficiently than by simple thermal conduction.



Is this tendency still in use? Are there any new technologies? To answer all these questions here is the 25 CPU cooler survey. This test includes an analysis of each of them, and above all, reliable sound and thermal measurements to determine their functioning and compare them objectively.
Here is the list of all the coolers we tested:

- Aerocool – GT1000

- Cooljag – Sunflower
- Gigabyte - 3D Rocket Pro
- Intel – Box
- Noiseblocker - Cool Scraper
- Noiseblocker - Cool Tower
- Noiseless Cooler - Calmera KS10
- Scythe – Kamakiri
- Swiftech - MCX775-V
- Thermalright - XP90
