Default The OCZ Vindicator CPU Cooler Review by Legit Reviews

This cooler looks good, but the performance doesn't seem to measure up- there are better coolers out there for the money (and for quite a bit less)

"OCZ Replaces The Tempest With The Vindicator

Last fall, Legit Reviews showed the world the first images of a new prototype OCZ heatsink that was internally known as the 'V-12'. This cooler has since been renamed the Vindicator for marketing purposes and is already on the market for about US $55 for that that are looking for an aftermarket air cooling solution for their processor. The heat sink has undergone a few changes since our original story published last year, but OCZ Technology has informed us the updated cooling fan and lower heat sink have only helped performance. Other than a few changes here and there the overall appearance is the same and the Vindicator still uses the six U-Shaped heat pipes to help get the heat away from the processor. The OCZ Vindicator CPU cooler is compatible with AMD 754/939/AM2 and Intel LGA775 CPU sockets, so if you have one of those processors you are in luck!"

I saw a review somewhere about this. It didn't do too well against the Big Typhoon VX.
