Evercool Buffalo HPFI7-10025 CPU Cooler

This isn't the first of the Buffalo CPU coolers, as you may have seen a version before. This time Evercool has made it applicable to Corei7 processors. They are all a variation of the HPF-10025 series of coolers, this one being the HPFI7, the last two digits referring to the socket it mounts to.

Evercool ships the Buffalo built solidly from the ground up. Starting from the copper base, the heat then travels into the heatpipes. From the solder points, the two, 6mm heatpipes then take the heat upwards into the compact, 62 fin layout. These fins are all stamped from aluminum, pressed onto the heatpipes and then these heatpipes are terminated with caps covering their tops. This cooler is paired with a 100mm, 1800RPM fan that is also tested by Evercool to run at less than 23 dBA, to remove the heat from those 62 fins. Just to be absolutely certain with what I addressed at the start, the HPFI7-10025 Buffalo cooler is Core i7 only.

Availability in the U.S. at this time is the same as the Transformer 4 I just reviewed, nil. They have both been released over seas and should be available through most of your e-tailers. Just as before, I don't have a definitive date as to when Evercool intends to start selling these along with their other stock of coolers on Newegg.

Pricing on the Buffalo Core i7 version of the cooler is a mystery as well. I can however take a pretty educated guess and say it is going to be around the $20 range. Looking at Newegg, I located both the HPFA-10025 for $15.99 and the HPFI-10025 for $16.99 U.S.. I really can't imagine that Evercool would charge more than a couple of dollars for the adaption to Core i7. Is the Evercool Buffalo worth a crisp twenty dollar bill from your wallet? Keep reading, as that is exactly what I intend to find out.
