Cases/Cooling/PSUs

End users need to be aware of the performance of their current cooling solutions in order to reasonably assess the upgrade that will fit their needs. In this review we will showcase the thermal performance of some popular stock CPU coolers, including the controversial aftermarket Intel BXTS15A and the highly touted AMD Wraith, marketed as offering 125W of near-silent cooling and the equivalent of a $30 freebie. We also included one of the most popular mainstream coolers available, the Cooler Master EVO 212, as a baseline comparison against aftermarket solutions.
