Cooler Master HSC-V83 "X-Dream SE" HSF Review

It wasn't too long ago that we looked at the Cooler Master X-Dream heatsink. It showed a lot of promise and wasn't nearly as loud as some of the others on the market. But what happens when they decide to take this same design and make it out of copper? Come join Mike "Darthtanion" Wright as he takes a look at the new Cooler Master X-Dream SE and gives you an answer to this very question!

It wasn't long ago that we had a look at the Cooler Master X-Dream HSF and we were impressed by the performance that it was able to achieve. But since that just wasn't good enough, the folks from Cooler Master decided to take this new design one step further and they made it all copper. Introducing the X-Dream SE HSF.


Cooler Master is a Japanese company that has been in the cooling business since 1992. Not only do they make performance minded coolers like the X-Dream series, but they are also one of the larger OEM heatsink manufacturers as well. It is not uncommon at all to open up a case and see their name emblazoned on the fans inside.


But past history aside, our goal today is to see firsthand whether or not this new sink has what it takes to lay claim to the X-Dream name. The original one was quite good, so lets see if the same holds true for the younger brother.
