The Coolermaster Sphere

8.0 Overall Score
Innovation: 8/10
Performance: 7/10
Quality: 9/10


The results aren’t exactly all what you think of them. while it may seem to experience readers that the Xeon 3060 seemed to be running hot, this is only the case because of the VCore I ran for those speeds. Those VCores represent the average needed to get to those clockspeed for most steppings. With tuning and trial and error, most Core 2 Duo’s can run at lower VCores, meaning less heat and lower temps.

Looking at the graphs, the Tuniq Tower 120 and the Thermalright Ultra 120 both seem to edge out the CM Sphere. That is until you look at all the factors. The Tuniq Tower is loud for a heatsink of this class and style, and the Thermalright option, while being quieter than the Tuniq Tower is incredibly large. While the Coolermaster Sphere may not be the best heatsink for those who would overclock it does have something that both the Tuniq and the Ultra-120 lack, style and originality.
