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.

V10The V10 offers many more features than the V8. The first would be the additional capabilities of cooling your ram while taking care of the CPU. Sitting atop a second set of aluminum fins is a 120mm cooling fan when placed properly blows right over your DIMM slots. We saw this in the Gemini cooler as well. This kind of cooler eliminates the need to deal with extra fans for ram cooling. Yet the most beneficial feature of the V10, if used right, is the T.E.C. base. With the right amount of heat to activate the thermal electric plate that is attached to the base of the cooler, the V10 is posed to offer a new level of performance and cooling and is capable of taming the most voltage hungry processor.

v8I am a fanboy of American automobiles especially the old school ones like the Mustangs, Chevells, Novas and many others. And one of the reasons I am so into these cars is because of the big blocks ( V8 for the unknowing) that these cars all had. Pure muscle is where it is all at. And the Coolermaster V8 takes it's name from just these types of cars. The V8 is 865g of copper and aluminum so you can say this one is a big block. Today we will see if the Coolermaster V8 can perform like the cars did back in the 60s and 70s.
