Evercool CUD-725CA HSF Review - CUD-725CA - Page 4

With so many cooling choices out there, it is sometimes hard to figure out how to spend your money on a heatsink. To help you in this decision, Mike "Darthtanion" Wright has taken a look at one of the newest Evercool heatsinks to hit the streets; namely the CUD-725CA. So come on in and see if this new cooler is just what the doctor ordered.

Lets recap a little here...


We have a HSF unit that provides a decent amount of cooling at what looks will be a very reasonable price. We have a HSF unit that doesn't cause your ear drums to shatter due to the sheer amount of noise emitting from it. We also have a HSF unit that is made entirely of copper to help in the dissipation of the built-up heat from the processor.


On the reverse side of the coin, there are numerous other models that perform better overall, but likely at a much higher volume (and price). So what it comes down to is whether or not you're wanting the absolute top of the line, or something that will fit within a budget.


Bottom line... If you are making plans on a monster machine that tries to set a record for amount of overclockability, then you'll want to look at some high-end (expensive) sinks to handle the load. If, on the other hand, you fall into the category of those on a budget, then take a look at this Evercool model. It provides reasonable cooling and won't leave a gaping hole in your wallet.
