Final Thoughts

 

After all the testing and searching for information, I am left with a mediocre feeling about the Tranformer 4. The performance is weaker than the average cooler on the list and with no price to say something cute like, "well the cooler is only $20, so you get what you pay for." I just can't say anything based on bang for the buck. Evercool has pretty much left us in the dark on this matter.

 

The complaint list on this cooler isn't all that long, but I do need to address a couple issues as I see it. First, I think better packaging techniques are in order. From my look at things, this cooler went into the package damaged. Quality Control in the packaging shouldn't be lax enough to allow this to happen. Secondly, the performance as a whole isn't all that good, even with two fans. I really think 90% of end users would take a bit more noise to keep their processors at a more comforting temperature level. Lastly is the fact that even though the Transfomer 4 is available to the masses, I'm having a really tough time trying to locate one.

 

With everything all wrapped into one completed package from Evercool, to say the least, I for one am not too impressed. To be blatantly obvious, I wouldn't advise someone to buy this cooler at a $30 price range. For a few more dollars you could step into the Xigmatek line-up or even the Mugen 2 I have just recently reviewed.
