Default Best CPU Cooler Performance - Q3 2008

I would like to thank MAC to post it in the Reviews section..


But for those enthusiasts clinging to their LGA775 setup and overclocking their Core 2 processors, adding a high-volume fan (and Crossbow bolt-through kit) can get you to the next level. Add the 88 CFM Yate Loon to a Noctua NH-U12P and you've got yourself a phenomenal cooler, but a little pricy. For the money, OCZ's Vendetta 2 is still my top choice when given a powerful fan. The Xigmatek HDT-S1283 is still right behind it, in both performance and price.
The Noctua came up with another nice product, but it is pricey for sure, but the Vendetta 2 and Xigmatek S1283 were once again picked for performance and price..
