Cooler Master Vortex Plus tested - 2 The Cooler

Written by Eliot Kucharik

Review: Small, good but very noisy





The package states the cooler is fit for any recent socket, such as all AMD sockets and Intel since 775. Due to its very small design we doubt it's really able to handle CPUs with a TDP higher than 95W. Our tests will reveal, if we are correct. With its height of only 84mm (116 x 100 x 84 mm) this cooler will at least fit in small cases, but we doubt it's any competition to Scythe Shuriken which has only a height of 64mm.

The cooler has four 6mm heatpipes and are built in such way so they have direct contact with the CPU. Due to its small size you can't expect miracles, but for any-dual core CPU it will suffice.
