Cooling 3D Style - Gigabyte cool the clocks - Conclusion

When we think of processor cooling devices most of us would first think of Thermaltake, CoolerMaster or OCZ. What about if we told you to think of Gigabyte? Start thinking about it! Gigabyte has just released their very first cooler for AMD Athlon XP and 64 as well as Intel Pentium 4. We've got Gigabyte's 3D cooler on the test bed. Come see just what it is capable of when we push some more MHz through the processors!

All we can say is for the first cooler Gigabyte has mass produced we are somewhat more than impressed. This cooler has shown it can cool the CPU's extremely effectively at stock speeds and give pretty good results at overclocked speeds.


The addition of RPM control at either the front of the PC or the back makes this cooler a definite must have item for any modded system, with LED's to brighten your day and case, its hard to go past.


Overall the cooling results, for the very first cooler from Gigabyte, at stock and overclocked speeds were enough to give this cooler our TweakTown "MUST HAVE" Best Performance Award!
