Direct touch heatpipe coolers seem to be the trend these days and the Evercool Transformer 4 sports four large heatpipes and dual fan cooling - http://www.overclock..._transformer_4/

Doesn't look like a bad cooler, but the grammar even on the product itself seemed pretty odd, as was pointed out in the conclusion page. Oddly, I hate the fans silver color. It looks as if someone took some spray paint and went over it in two quick coats. I don't know, just not feeling it there.

Overall though, not a horrible performing cooler. I wouldn't want it in my rig, but to each his own.

Nice review RHKCommander959. :)

Whats the expected cost of one of these? Even though it has fans with paint that easily chip and poor thermal grease, it still has good performance "coo ing"!
