5 out of 5 eggs Cool (no pun intended) 09/24/2009

This review is from: EVERCOOL HPFA-10025 100mm Ever Lubricate CPU Cooler (Buffalo for AMD)

Pros:

Keeps my unlocked and overclocked processor cool. I am sitting at 3.8ghz on a phenom 2 x2 550 BE cpu, unlocked to 4 cores, idling at 32-40 celsius and 49-56 celsius at load. The stock cooler, at 3.5 ghz and 4 cores, it was idling at 48-55 celsius and 65-75 celsius on load. those temperatures were unacceptable. The fan itself never goes to %100, and on load, I had the fan running at %70. The fan is very quiet, and has no problem blowing heat away from the heatsink.

Cons:

Maybe a little big for smaller cases, also the aluminum fins are sharp. A solid copper base would be preffered, rather than the copper plate on the bottom.

Other Thoughts:

This CPU cooler is so completely under-estimated. I was able to lower my load temperatures by about 15-25 celsius, as well as overlocking even further. For $23.30, there is no reason to buy a $50+ cpu cooler, because this thing outperforms a lot of them. This has to be the best "bang for the buck" cpu cooler on the market now, and i definitely recomend it.
