Upgrading the cooling system in your computer is one of the wisest moves a user can make. It provides plenty of benefits to the user: increased lifetime of components, increased airflow throughout the system, and potentially higher clock speeds if the user is overclocking. But not all heat sinks are designed the same; once in a while a few heat sinks are designed that stand out from the others. Today we're looking at one of the latest.
Cooler Master has been producing heat sinks for quite some time now. I remember encountering my first Cooler Master heat sink on an old Pentium 1. And I had actually purchased my first Cooler Master aftermarket cooler for my Slot 1 Pentium 2. Cooler Master has recently launched a few new heat sinks which offer excellent performance for even the newest Core 2 Duo processors. Today we're going to take a look at one of their more unique coolers, the Eclipse.
The Eclipse is modeled after a few heat sinks. Itís similar to a tower heat sink as itís very tall, utilizing heat pipes to transfer heat to the heatsink fins. The Eclipse is different as its fins run vertically to the motherboard and are attached to the base. The fan is actually surrounded by the heat sink fins, where a special turbine fan pulls air in from the sides of the heat sink and pushes it through the center of the heat sink and out through the heat sink, passing the heat pipes surrounding it. It sounds confusing, doesnít it? Letís take a closer look and see how it works.
