When I first received this cooler, there was one word to truly describe how I felt, whoa. Coolermaster had managed to buck the trend and give us a tower style heatsink that could not only operate quietly and possibly efficiently, but also be aesthetically pleasing, not only to modders who live for bright shinny things but for also the more laid back crowd that still wants a dash of excitement and contrast in world filled with iced brushed aluminum and austere matte black surfaces.
Using the standard setup of an all copper base to collect the heat, four all copper heatpipes to channel the heat and massive all copper fins to disperse it. Looking at the basic specifications it seems as if this is just another tower cooler until you take a look at Coolermasters "Vortex" style fan which blows air in a full 360° axis.
Taking a look, it already seems to blow the standard Intel reference cooler out of the water in terms of size and weight.
Many manufacturers search out designs that will help them develop a product known for extraordinary performance. I’ve already tested various types of cooling solutions ranging from the more traditional Tuniq Tower 120, to the more exotic Vigor Gaming Monsoon II thermoelectric cooler. Can the Coolermaster Sphere compete with its competitors?
