25$ and a much smaller size compared to the other high performing cpu coolers on the market makes this cpu cooler a winner. It performs very well even though it’s not the best on the market but for the price and for the size it performs extremely...-

AMD and Intel have worked hard over the years to produce CPUs with smaller dies, increased transistor counts and reduced power consumption. Despite these improvements TDP (thermal design power) for desktop CPUs has remained in the 60-80w range as more...-

With the majority of cases now coming with CPU cut outs in the motherboard tray, allowing the mounting and removal of CPU coolers in-situ, the attraction of push pin mounting without the need for a back plate is decreasing.With most CPU coolers that...-

Now, it is important to note that the comparison Noctua costs close to twice as much as the mid $30 priced Freezer 13. When overclocked, that difference does indeed show up.With only the single fan that goes in one direction, the Freezer 13 is...-
