These days bigger processors like core i7 , phenom 2 are widely used. But they all have 4 to 6 cores working on 3.0 GHz or more which makes them really-really hot. However, the default cooling fans that are supplied with them are worthless. They are good enough for ordinary users who work on PCs for a couple of hours and shut it down later. But what about the hardcore gamers, web designers or hardcore downloaders whose PC’s are not turned off for weeks?? I for instance belong to the latter category of users who cannot wait to lay my hands on the latest game that arrives in the market. However, I find that it is nearly impossible to sit near the PC for more than a couple of hours, thanks to the heat generated. So, I decided to come out with this article to make it easy for hardcore PC users so that they could get more out of their PC by having a higher cooling system not only for the CPU but also for the RAM, Graphics, Northbridge and overall cooling of the cabinet.
This is a nice cooling kit and all the fittings are pre-assembled. This is from Cooler Master (I’m sure every one is familiar with this brand) .This can be fit in any case which has 120mm fan holding space. It has very tiny pumps but does its work well. However, the one disadvantage of this cooling system is that it makes a lot noise. I would say if u do not want to spend a lot of money and still make your friends jealous then go for it 😉
This cooling system from corsair is a fine product. It is less noisy and also fits into any cabinet with 120mm fan support. It is affordable too. The only disadvantage is that it does not look that cool. I wont recommend this for hardcore gamers but would be more suitable for people who work a lot on networking.
Now,this is the big daddy water cooling system from Cooler Master. This stuff is insane! It can connect to every thing in your pc and not just the CPU. On a rating scale of 10, I would give it 8.2. The disadvantage of this is its high price
Cooling systems for those who think water cooling is worthless and need maintenance.
Thats right! Water cooling needs some care too! You will have to fill the coolant and keep a eye on the rubber pipes Take a look at one of the hardcore cooling systems. This doesn’t consist of water but just the old school heat sink and the heat spreaders are on some sort of steroid.
This is a big one, does a good job and is from cooler master. However, the only problem is that this weighs around 2 pounds(or you can say 865g). Thats a lot of weight for the motherboard to handle, so I would recommend this for those who have the downside cabinet
Now thats a demon called v10 from cooler master. Its a great product! You wont believe that this thing weighs 3 lbs or u can say 1200 g Heat Sink Material – Cu base, Al fin, 10 heat pipes ,Fan Life Expectancy 40,000 hours @ 25oC, Now have a look on Dimensions – 236.5 x 129.6 x 161.3 mm (L x W x H) this thing is very big and after seeing all I will still go for water cooling but if u cant look at the maintenance then u should go for any of the 2 monster
