Final Thoughts

 

With the exception of the installation, the Antazone AS-C1000 is a very workable cooling solution. Utilizing heatpipe cooling technology and having a very unique jet turbine appearance, the folks at Antazone have done a good job mixing looks and performance. The plastic shroud makes sure that the air being forced through by the fan is directed to where it is needed and also sets the aesthetics a notch up from many other similar products on the market.

 

As noted, however, installation was a bear. If you have a buddy who can lend a spare hand, this should alleviate the problem, but if you are running solo prepare yourself for a challenge. While certainly not impossible, it will likely take you a bit of time to get it properly installed.

 

As far as price is concerned, the jury is still out on this aspect of the Antazone cooler. Being a newer design, it is not currently on the market in quantity and local searches of US based suppliers do not show this product yet.

 

Bottom line... If you have been looking for a new cooling solution and have decided on using a heatpipe technology product, there are several choices in nearly all price categories. If, however, you want this same cooling solution but with a look that is more than a little unique, then your choices narrow down a good deal. The Antazone AS-C1000 HSF falls squarely into the "unique" category but still offers reliable cooling for your precious processor.
