Not bad for only having three heatpipes and costing 30 bucks. I wouldn't trade it for my Core Contact Freezer, but it is nice to see another budget cooler that can perform pretty well.

Agreed, its a damn nice cooler for $30 but the Xigmatek HPDT RS1283 is about $35.



We need a 10mm HPDT cooler, that'd be pretty sweet!

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

Looks clean, great value.

I'd have preferred to have seen some more coolers for comparison. I'd like to know exactly where it stands compared to some of the newer ones.
