Chassis Airflow
Chassis Airflow
Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

Date Issued: 14th Jun 2008

There’s been a lot of hype about Intel’s Core 2 recently, even since they launched Core in fact. Words like Conroe, Badaxe and Allendale have been flying around. The bottom line is that Core 2 is the name of Intel’s latest line of CPUs, based on a new micro-architecture, designed for speed and efficiency.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic cheap cooler!! Ok I'm not gonna lie this cooler is being used on a i3 haswell a bit overkill I originally had a closed loop fitted and well this tower is beating the closed loops for example gaming pure rock cpu max temp was 32c closed loop max temp was 46c running virtual box Pure rock max temp was 34c closed loop hit 51c Now yes im running a i3 but this cpu cooler would be fantastic for an i5 or even an i7 specially on skylake 22 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does the job very nicely Bought two of these to cool a pair of Xeon E5-2640 V3s and they seem to be doing the job very nicely keeping them at around 35 degrees at idle, which is fairly impressive considering they are 8 core CPUs with not more than an inch or so between the two coolers. Comes with a plethora of mounting solutions which despite looking quite confusing aren't too bad at all to install once you've got it figured out, just bear in mind you might not need half the screws etc that it comes with, so don't feel too nervous if its all mounted up nicely and you still have half a box of screws left! When it arrives the fan isn't assembled onto the cooler so you'll need to do this yourself once you've attached the cooler to your motherboard, but it only takes two seconds if you follow the instruction booklet. Only slight problem I had was when the coolers arrived the boxes had obviously taken quite a knock in the post, and the protective plastic caps which cover the pre applied thermal paste had come off and bits of cardboard box had got stuck all in it which isn't ideal for making good thermal contact with your CPU, however was easily resolved by wiping all the paste off the coolers and reapplying some other thermal grease I had laying around to the processor, annoying but not a major problem. Overall very impressed, good quality cheap cooler which does the job nicely. 18 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing value Under heavy load the fan is pretty much silent and with a single fan keeps my cpu idle at about 33 degrees under heavy load about 44. can't go wrong with buying this. 06 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by a lot quieter and cooler than the intel stock cooler so far so good. 10 degree drop at idle and havent seen anything over 55 yet (i5 [email protected]). im glad i went with this over evo 212 as this only just fits in my case. my only gripe atm is some of the fins where warped. might have returned if it was a flagship product. 05 August 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Be Quiet is a bit mssleading Just built myself a brand new PC mostly new components from Scan.co.uk who as always delivered on time etc.etc. After building it with the stock Intel Fan, in a coolermaster silent case I was very happy except the slight buzz of the fan, bit of temperature monitoring and playing about I deduced the only one I could hear was the CPU fan, so decided to treat myself to a new cooler. Read the reviews and checked the prices, settled on the be quiet! Pure Rock. It is quite well made, and popping out the motherboard again to fit it was no hardship, was quite pleased with the way it went together. Until I fitted the fan and turned it on. Temperature of my CPU was down about 2 - 4 degrees at idle and the fan speed was about half of the stock cooler so can't fault the efficiency of the heat pipes. BUT even at half the speed the 120mm fan makes more noise than the stock Intel fan, in fact it is so loud you can hear it from the next room. hence the low star and quality rating, it is purely the fan that lets it down, fittings and radiator were nicely made and it's a stock 120mm fan so when budget allows I can improve on that too. 01 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent! My processor went from frying eggs to chilling beer! Would recommend! Was fairly simple to install however the instructions could have been more informative, all in all a great product though 31 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent cooler! Super value for money. Very pleasantly surprised by just how quiet and efficient (at cooling) the cooler is. For the quality I honestly might have expected to pay double the price. Keeps my 'hot' 130w 8 core AMD cpu, at a steady 30C; even when the machine is being pushed for high level gaming purposes. And the fan which is extremely quiet as standard, still remains virtually a whisper as it kicks in to keep the cpu temperature nice and low. As usual received a super quality service by Scan; fast next day delivery with the product beautifully packaged. 06 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well Recommended for the price alone Comes with kit for most modern sockets Running i7 2011 CPU Very quiet Good cooling For stock cooling you can not go wrong 26 June 2015

Answer: 
Yes it comes with s small tube that you then apply to the top of the CPU yourself.

I/we recommend using as much paste as that of an uncooked grain of rice, less is more.

Answer: 
Yes, the cooler comes with thermal compound already applied which is a lot less messy than having to spread your own stuff. However when mine arrived the plastic protector had fallen off and bits of cardboard box were stuck in the compound, so I actually had to wipe the pre applied stuff off and use my own anyway, but hopefully this is just a one off.

Answer: 
Yes it does. A neat rectangular pad of thermal compound paste. I can't, however, vouch for how good it is though. Personally I always remove the default provided paste, clean the cooler, and replace with some high quality Arctic Silver thermal compound. Can make a huge difference in temperature reduction.
