One thing about being a reviewer is that you get lots of stuff, especially CPU Coolers, so I've got quite a few of them on hand and thought I'd compare them all together. This isn't just a comparison of results from a bunch of reviews, this is all new testing done with these coolers specifically for this article.
You might be wondering why I titled it 'CPU Cooler Roundup on C2D' well that's because I've recently got a C2Q and I am in process of re-doing all of these same tests on my Core2Quad CPU as well to see which of these 12 coolers can handle a Quad core.
Where applicable I've even tested these coolers without fans to see just how well they perform as truly silent cooling solutions. Since this isn't a 'official' review it will be broken down differently than others I've done in the past, this will be divided into sections. Inside you'll find sections with the coolers using the fan connected to a Molex, meaning running at full speed, connected to the CPU header, PWM controlled if applicable and of course a section just for coolers without their fans.
To make it all even, I've used Arctic Cooling MX-2 Thermal Compound on all of the coolers, Arctic Cooling was kind enough to send me several tubes of their new MX-2 thermal compound to be used as I saw fit, and this fit the bill perfectly.
Of course you won't find every cooler out there in here, but I've got Scythe, Thermalright, JetArt, Noctua, Coolink, Zalman, GlacialTech, OCZ and even the Intel Stock Cooler included for good measure, so it's a nice sampling of various types of coolers available today. So let's jump into this now and see what's going on with these coolers.
