There are certainly some pretty big and mean looking CPU heatsinks on the market these days but this new "Silent Square Cooler" from ASUS has to be one of the biggest and ugliest i've seen yet. The lads at Hardware Zone managed to arrange a sneak peek of it on the weekend.
ASUS may be one of the biggest component manufacturers around but it has yet to stamp its mark for cooling products. Many smaller firms specializing in cooling solutions have had great success but ASUS looks to continue rewriting its own uninspired history with yet another ambitious cooler, but there is actually something more to it than meets the eye. Does this towering ASUS Silent Square cooler have the street cred to attract the hardcore enthusiasts and the veteran overclockers?
