"In the first part of our extensive roundup of CPU coolers, we came to the conclusion that 45% of the products we tested either failed the test, or weren't worth the asking price . Additionally, we were surprised by how much junk is sold in hardware stores these days, and how badly customers are sometimes deceived.
Today, we move on to the second part of the cooler charts, testing six more coolers that join the eleven models we reviewed in the previous installment. The field covers the full range of products, from the inconspicuous and cheap entry level model to the high-end water cooler costing €350. For us, cooling performance alone isn't everything, though - we also take the products' noise and ease of installation into consideration."
