Cooler Master Sphere CPU Cooler - The Cooler

Using our trusted T.E.C.C. testing methods, we compare Cooler Master's Sphere to all our previously tested coolers.

The Cooler

 

 

The image pretty much speaks for itself here. You have copper fins, a base and on top is the mount for the fan.

 

 

Cooler Master has started the heatpipes at the base and sent them through half of the fin area.

 

 

The top of the cooler gives us a good shot of the fan. It is possible to remove the fan for cleaning from the top also.

 

 

Here we have the base of the cooler, where it makes contact with the CPU. As you can see the base is not exactly smooth like some of the nickel plated coolers we have been looking at, and with your finger you can feel the machine lines. This should hurt performance by a small amount and you will want to use good thermal interface material to regain some of the lost performance.

 

 

Cooler Master used a standard 3-pin power cable on the Sphere. The cable is long enough to fit a header on the bottom of the motherboard if you need to get creative.
