Specification and Closer Look
The Fera 3 is designed for most modern CPU sockets. It won’t support TR4 socket so AMD Threadripper processors. For these processors, I recommend SilentiumPC Navis or similar AIO water cooling solutions.
The general specification looks typical for a single fan tower cooler. There are many similar coolers on the market, but their performance is not equal. We will take a look at the performance on the next pages of this review.
The package of the Fera 3 is not much different to what we are used to seeing in case of CPU coolers. Most popular brands have a similar, not large package which includes the cooler, user’s manual and everything required for installation on popular CPU sockets.
The cooler has a total height of 155mm. We can install it without issues in most desktop computers as typical PC case supports up to 155-160mm cooler.
Fera 3 has a simple but efficient design. Four copper heat pipes have direct contact with the CPU’s IHS. It gives optimal cooling results, usually better than a standard solution with heat pipes covered by a cold plate.
Installation of the Fera 3 is simple and shouldn’t cause any issues to even less advanced users. All steps are well described on pictures, so there is no need for a thick, multi-lingual manual.
The Fera 3 is equipped with a Sigma Pro 120mm series fan. The fan has no additional lighting, but it’s not an issue for most users. It also lowers the price. If we wish to get a cooler with RGB lighting, then there is also available RGB version of the Fera 3.
Above are four photos of the Fera 3 installed on the ASRock X570 Extreme4 motherboard. As you can see, there is still plenty of space for tall memory modules. On the motherboard is installed Ballistix Elite DDR4-3600 memory which is rather tall.
