The GIGABYTE G-Power 2 Pro is without a doubt a true performer that enthusiasts will love. Not only does it do a good job of reducing CPU temperatures but it will also work at cooling down your motherboard in a two birds with one stone fashion.
Silent computing guys can take refuge with the G-Power 2 Pro also; the cooler is dead silent in most situations, and the only exception would be in the HTPC environment as the cooler is near but not totally silent when watching movies or crunching a heavy workload.
The size of the cooler might be a limiting factor in some cases, mainly HTPC. Standing erect at 162mm tall from the base to the top of the fan shroud the G-Power 2 Pro is one of the taller heatsinks on the market. The good news is this usually equals good performance numbers and as we have seen in the testing results, the cooler backs up that theory.
Mounting the cooler to the T.E.C.C. was very easy as was a full on motherboard installation. AMD owners will not need to remove the motherboard from their system to install the G-Power 2 Pro but Intel users will not be so lucky. In the future I would like to see GIGABYTE move to a push pin mounting system for their Intel installation like we are starting to see some of the other companies move to.
