Thermolab Baram CPU Cooler The new Baram from Thermolab has all the signs of being one of the better coolers on the market. It has five heat pipes, support for dual 120mm cooling fans and even the what I believe to be the proper size and weight. The Baram is compatible with current CPU sockets from Intel and AMD, except for socket 1366. What impresses me the most is the build quality of the cooler. Will size and build quality make this a good performer? We will see.

overviewThe CNPS line takes chances in idea and design, especially when it comes to the new CNPS9900 cooler. Not that I am not a fan of the typical flower design we have seen from Zalman, but there is a time when one must move forward. With the competitive nature of the market, this is most definitely true with cooling technology. The new cooler keeps the usual heat pipes we're accustomed to seeing, but the fins surrounding the pipes are now split in half, resulting in two half coolers with a PWM controller in between them. But is this semi-new look enough to be fitted in your plans for your next rig build? We shall see.

Scythe Mugen 2 CPU Cooler Today's review sample was originally a pretty good cooler in its earlier days. The Mugen cooler was a favorite of many reviewers that had the pleasure of reviewing it. Performance was right there with the Noctua NH-U12P, Tuniq Tower 120 and many others we regarded as very good coolers. However, the new version is not only compatible with the new Intel i7 processor, but is heavier, taller and comes with a better performing cooling fan. Is it enough to put it at the top of the list with the likes of the Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme and the new Zalman CNPS 9900 LED? We shall see.

overviewAnother company that is not as popular in the U.S. as it is in Asia is allowing us to review their tower design cooler. Evercool is the one of the largest cooler manufacturers in Taiwan. Regardless of their lack of popularity in the U.S. looking around the net I saw several reviews about their previous and they all performed pretty well. Not in order to make a bigger name for themselves here in the U.S. Evercool sent us two of their newest coolers, the one we will presenting to you today is the Transformer 4. This new cooler is capable of handles all the newest processors from AMD and Intel as well as each's older processors. And with the dual fan setup the Transformer is looking to be a cool to be wrecking with. And look good doing it.

Cogage TRUE Spirit CPU CoolerThermalright's new offspring is Cogage. Cogage is targeted at gamers, mainstream users and moderate overclocker. Cogage opens with two coolers: TRUE Spirit which we are reviewing today and the MST-140. Each of the coolers are aimed at two different users. The Spirit which looks pretty similar to the original Ultra-120. And is geared to cool your overclocked CPU while the MST-140 is aimed at the person that is in need of a cooler for tight spaces like HTPC and SFF boxes. Even though the Spirit and the Ultra-120 look similar they do have their differences. What are they? Read on and find out.

overviewThe cooler was the Xigmatek Thor's Hammer. The Hammer is one of those coolers that when you first see it you could not but think how does this thing compete with the big boys like the Coolermaster V8 and Thermalright T.R.U.E. Well that is what I thought anyways. And to think about how well the HDT-S1283 has done at a budget price you would think this monster would be a Top Ten cooler killer. The Hammer is based on the Heat pipe Direct Touch, or HDT for short, technology. To explain this in a brief sentence, the heat pipes come in direct contact with the IHS of the processor for more direct cooling. We will get more into that later in the review. So, you have to read a little more to see what this cooler and HDT is all about.

Hyper N520To add to the performance line of cooling, Coolermaster graced us with a new cooler labeled the Hyper N520. The N520 is designed is based on the tower and heat pipe technology which is very popular today. One thing that sets the Hyper N520 from the rest is it built-in dual 92mm cooling fans. This simple addition is something that higher priced coolers tend to come with. From all this we can see the Hyper N520 is aiming to be one of the top of the budget coolers.
