EVERCOOL HPL-815 Low Profile CPU Cooler Review

gallery 01

To cool or not to cool, that is the question. CPU coolers are a very important component of any PC, whether for everyday casual workloads, enthusiast benchmarking, or hardcore gaming. Without these coolers, our CPUs would meet a very painful and melting demise. Without exceptional coolers, overclocking would not be near as fun (or cost effective).

Fortunately, there exists an abundance of manufacturers whose specialty is to provide us with a variety of options both large and small, air or liquid. One of these manufacturers just happens to be EVERCOOL.



Today we will be taking a look at the HPL-815 Low Profile CPU Cooler from EVERCOOL. Low profile coolers are necessary in certain builds such as SFF (small form factor) PCs or HTPCs (home theater), just to name a couple. When the available height space in your chassis is limited, low profile CPU coolers are an extremely valuable upgrade to the stock cooling solution provided with your processor.

What makes this particular cooler interesting is the extremely low profile design and the quad HPDT (heat pipe direct touch) construction. The major questions we will be seeking to answer in this review are: will the small stature of the HPL-815 hinder its cooling performance and will the 80mm fan be enough to cool our Intel Core i7 4770k within reasonable noise levels as well? Without further delay, let us begin the review!
