- CoolerMaster Jet 7 Conclusion
We have a very cool looking cooler in the Jet 7 that a lot of people will buy simply because it looks amazing. It was the best performer at load out of the group as far as temperatures went and while the Aero 7+ was very close, the Jet 7 was able to perform on par with it but at a less ear blasting level.
We have no doubt that it will carry a bit of a hefty price tag but we think it deserves a very high 8.5 out of 10. In all another very good cooler from CoolerMaster.
Rating - 8.5 out of 10
- CoolerMaster Aero 7+ Conclusion
While the Aero 7+ hasn't really changed from the Aero 7, this version will not catch on fire - at least we sincerely hope not. There were only a few cases of it happening but CoolerMaster took the initiative and recalled all heatsinks and then proceeded to remodel the design.
In all we have a high quality cooler but the chances of people buying this when the Jet 7 is just around the corner will be quite small. A decent cooler that will be phased out shortly thanks to its new big brother.
Rating - 7.5 out of 10
- ThermalTake TR2-M2 Conclusion
Nothing special at all can really be found about this particular cooler - it performs quite poorly and seems to be an exact copy of the Vantec Aero Flow, just cheaper. The TMD fan is suppose to help keep noise down as well as reduce the dead spot and while it may reduce the dead spot, we wouldn't want to hear the same fan wit out the TMD technology implemented into it as it would be an absolute screamer.
If it was a choice between this or the stock AMD cooler, the stock AMD cooler would have our votes. Very dismal ThermalTake!
Rating - 4.5 out of 10
-ThermalTake Silent Boost Conclusion
Here on the other end of the scale, we have an excellent cooler from ThermalTake which performs very well. While it doesn't cool as well as the Jet 7 or Aero 7+, it is extremely quiet that you cannot hear it.
It's going to be perfect for a lot of people and it's definitely one fan that hasn't sacrificed performance for noise. Overall we have an excellent job by ThermalTake and an original design, in contract to the TR2-M2. Thanks to its excellent cooling and ultra low noise, we don't see any reason not to give it our Editor's Choice award.
