Core-Contact Freezer - CPU Cooler Review

Sunbeamtech known for its computer cases and cooling products has a CPU cooler called the "Core-Contact Freezer". PCWizKid reviews how cool and effective it can be with an AMD Quad Core Phenom CPU overclocked at 3Ghz. When I first saw the tower-like design of this cooler, I immediately had concerns with its compatibility with motherboards and space, however I was relieved to see as I installed it our Asus M3A78-T motherboard that there was nothing to worry about. The design is plain and simple, yet logical. In the video review you can see the details, there are 4 U-shaped copper heatpipes that make contact with both the base and through the 50 odd aluminum fins that basically make a heatsink structure. The conventional and standard use heatpipes dissipating heat through aluminum is not new, however the X pattern of these thin fins makes it easier and quicker to get things cooled off.

PC Gamers and Enthusiasts
looking to keep things cool can rest assured the Core-Contact Freeze's effective combination with the include Fan works. It demonstrated its capability of keeping a 100% load CPU well below the temperature limits of the CPU manufacturer. the ability to control the fan speed easily also helps fine tune the noise / cooling needs for those who rather tweak things themselves. The easy installation and simple design makes it a snap to install in our tests and the overall package is complete with all you need.
