- Gigabyte 3D Rocket Pro Cooler: At a glance

Looking for something nice and quiet yet highly effective for your CPU? Whether it be for LGA775, Socket478, AMD K8 or K7, Gigabyte's monster 3D Rocket Pro cooler can work with 'em all and over at Short-media today is proven yet again to be an awesome performer, but certainly at a hefty price. Well worth considering if you're wanting pretty extreme air cooling without your PC sounding like it's making an effort to defy gravity.


It's massive. It looks like a cylinder head for a motorcycle and it clamps onto the CPU socket; most every CPU socket. Gigabyte's 3D Rocket-Pro heatsink blew us away. It's intimidating. It dwarfs other heatsinks. It looks like it weighs much more than a socket can handle. It will attract attention at LAN parties as onlookers will gawk through window mods like crowds at a circus event.
