Evercool Venti HPQ-12025 CPU Cooler Review

 

Verdict and Conclusion

Well, I’m sorry to say, but I’m a bit underwhelmed with this one.  For all the marketing hype that companies assign to their products, I can’t help but feel this is a bit misplaced.  Amid the extra, tiny screws and terrible fan clip combinaton, it’s really just not that impressive and I can’t see myself recommending it to anyone who isn’t in the market for really just anything that’ll fit on their CPU.

However, for what you’ll pay, I also can’t say it’s necessarily a horrible deal.  The Venti goes for around $30 USD retail, so at least Evercool was decent enough to price it appropriately. 

 

Pros:

  • Works with all Intel and AMD sockets.
  • Reasonable price.

 

Cons:

  • Gimmicky mounting system.
  • Too small screws and bolts
  • Needs better fan clips.
  • Below-average to average cooling performance.

 

Final Words. On the whole, I would feel ok recommending this as a first try to anyone who’s new to overclocking and/or aftermarket cooling.  Like I said, the price is good enough where you don’t really get taken for a ride and you still get some enjoyment out of it.  So on that note if you’re really interested, I guess give a go, but if you’re looking for something of better quality, I’d say you’d be hardpressed not to find something better elsewhere or from a different section of Evercool’s stock.  Not abysmal but not necessarily really good either.

 

SCORE


6.8/10
