Low temperatures, Low profile, low noise and low price! What more can you ask for from an exceptionally high efficient little cooler that delivers. This is the type of CPU Cooler you want to keep a case cool and quiet using for example AMD's low...

s drawn from testing lead me down two different paths. Anyone with a high end quad core, this is not going to be the best cooler for you, as it does not cope with enormous amounts of heat well unless noise isn’t an issue. On the other hand, this...

The instructions that came with the Vortex Plus were confusing and hard to follow. Trying to install the cooler using the instructions that came in the box was frustrating for me. Once someone explained to me how to install the cooler it made more...

Vortex Plus is not a cooler targeted to overclockers and enthusiasts. Its main audience are computers mounted in SFF or HTPC (Home Theater PC) cases. It is relatively inexpensive if compared to top notch coolers.With this in mind the conclusion we get...

The Vortex Plus heatsink stands 83mm tall, in total. A 25mm thick, 92mm PWM fan exhausts downward so waste air impinges on a lower extruded aluminum heatsink that sits atop the processor. It's both a good use of space for additional cooling surface...

CoolerMasterThe Cooler Master Vortex Plus performed very well in these tests, showing itself more than adequate for dissipating the heat loads overclocked quad-core Athlon II processors can generate; given its compatibility with Intel's 140W TDP...

The Cooler Master Vortex Plus CPU Cooler certainly isn’t the best performing cooler we’ve tested. However it does have an extremely low profile of only 84mm. I would have expected a little better cooling performance from a company like...

The overall look to the Vortex Plus is very pleasant! The four heat pipe design with direct contact to the base is an outstanding addition for cooling efficiency. The wire clips that are used to hold the 92mm fan in place were very capable of doing...

Unless this is precisely the form factor you're looking for, the Vortex Plus shouldn't make it to the short list. As you'll see in a few moments, there's at least one superior alternative...

Summer approaches, slowly but steadily, and with it an increased interest of PC owners for better cooling for their electronic pets. Regardless of whether a particular user is a fan of overclocking or not, a high-quality CPU cooler is always an...

If you are looking for the next best thing in the cooling world that will give you the lowest temperatures on your overclocked Core i7, the Vortex Plus is not the cooler for you. You will need something more robust to keep up with the thermal energy...

For such a small cooler the results are good. The only downside is the noisy fan. Cooler Master should do something about it and invest some resources to get the fan at lower noise-levels. The same cooler design with a 12cm fan would have faired much...

No podemos decir que haya un disipador mejor que otro en este análisis. Todos tienen su público, su sector, su plataforma y hasta su momento. Además, aunque los hemos colocado todos a la vez e incluso se han comparado los resultados, tampoco era...

Nach Abschluss der Tests bleibt ein eher getrübtes Bild des Cooler Master Vortex Plus zurück. Aber um ihn fair zu bewerten muss zuerst einmal festgehalten werden, dass er als einziger Kandidat auf die klassische Kühlerform setzt. Dadurch...

Der Coolermaster Vortex Plus ist ein grundsolider Kühler mit passender Performance. Er geht leise zu Werke und kühlt dabei besser als ein AMD Boxed Kühler. Negativ hingegen fällt die Montage auf, diese könnte Coolermaster gerne...

Vortex Plus er ikke egnet til overclockere og entusiaster, derimod er den særdeles velegnet til mainstream, LAN og HTPC (Home Theater PC) folket. I testen yder køleren meget ringere end referencekølerne fra Corsair og CoolIT....

Le Cooler Master Vortex Plus devrait être bientôt disponible, pour 24.90€. Un tarif très intéressant, qui en fait un bon modèle. Performant, facile à installer, il n'y a rien à lui reprocher, sauf peut-être le design. Il faut avouer qu'il a...
