Final Thoughts

 

 

After all is said and done, I have no problems at all with recommending the Vigor Gaming Monsoon II cooler for anyone interested in maximizing cooling for their processor. Mixing Peltier cooling with the tried and true heatpipe cooling technology has produced an extraordinary manner of cooling those high-powered brutes we have come to know and love. Even the older processors that crank out a huge amount of heat will find a welcome relief from this product.

 

Keep in mind, however, that this cooling solution is made for those using standard enclosures. SFF systems need not apply since there simply won't be enough room inside to mount the cooler. It also isn't the quietest kid on the block, so if silence is your ultimate goal, then you will be disappointed. If you happen to be looking for sheer performance, however, you will be well served.

 

 

As far as price is concerned, you can expect to shell out about US$150 or so for this gem. Yes it is rather expensive, but considering that many folks are paying this and more for water and getting nowhere near the performance, it doesn't work out to that much in comparison. Yes, water provides lower noise levels, but Peltier gives you rock solid performance!

 

Bottom line... If you have been looking at upgrading your cooling but are on a low budget, then turn away now and don't look back. If, however, you are looking for exceptional performance that combines two of the most highly rated cooling technologies on the market, then make sure to take a long, hard look at the Vigor Gaming Monsoon II cooling solution. To put it in its simplest form, it just KICKS ASS!
