What can I say, air coolers are the inexpensive way to extract performance out of a CPU, while maintaining a cool temperature. Every CPU produces heat while it operates and the long time standard for cooling them has been air cooling fan and heatsink combos. Don’t get me wrong, they are great performing components for cooling a CPU, but it seems that if you are trying to overclock your CPU to the extreme, many times the ceiling for performance gets set by the cooling abilities of the heatsink. In most cases, we are left to upgrading to the more expensive liquid cooling setups when we are trying to reach the mid 4GHz range with an overclock.
What if I told you that there was an air cooling heatsink that could handle the cooling requirements of a CPU that has been overclocked almost 1800 MHz to a clock speed of just shy of 4.4GHz. Would you believe me? Is that really possible while keeping it cool and stable? ZeroTherm has produced outstanding coolers for years, and the new Core i5 cooler could just be the air cooler to answer these questions with a resounding yes.
The ZeroTherm Core 92 CPU cooler is the company’s first introduction into the Core i5 cooling market. The ZeroTherm Core 92 CPU cooler features a center mounted fan with superior airflow. The heat pipes are designed to come in direct contact with the CPU chip to provide the highest level of cooling efficiency. The near stock mounting design allows for simple installation and removal making motherboard removal not even a factor.
