OCZ Dominator HSF Review - Dominator - Page 4

OCZ has been playing with aluminum in a copper world. Their new Dominator HSF is designed for the "Budget-Conscious" buyer who wants some cooling for their mighty Thunderbirds. But can they succeed with an aluminum sink when everyone else is using copper? Come join Mike as he delves into this question and let's you know just what is hot about the Dominator... or what's not.

Conclusion

 

What can I say here? The OCZ Dominator has done a very good job of living up to its name. If you were to just compare it to other heatsinks that were made out of aluminum, it truly dominates them. But even when you compare it with top-notch copper units, it is still able to hold its own. Add to this the fact that it costs under US$16, and you have one great buy.

 

But the down side to this sink is the noise. While I can handle the loud noise, some won't. If you're still looking for a great cooler that is quiet also, you will want to continue your search.

 

Bottom line...If you are in the market for an outstanding cooler and don't mind the noise that this sink puts out, then take a very close look at this Dominator. At under $16, it's a deal that you just can't beat.
