After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
In this review we will be looking at the compact CPU cooler from CoolerMaster called the Vortex 752. This is a heatpipe enabled cooler that is designed as a universal OEM replacement for the Intel 775 and AMD K8 and AM2 processors.
Most fans in this configuration are simply clipped into place but CoolerMaster opted to mount this fan with rubber plugs help to control vibration while holding the fan into place. These plugs also make it VERY difficult to swap fans without building a special tool to reseat them.
