Default Intel Core i7 CPU Heatsink 6-Way Roundup

So given the option, which would we choose? Well, as always it comes down to the specifics of what youre after. If silence is golden to you, then wed point you firmly in the direction of the Noctua NH-U12P. Its practically silent if you use the voltage step down adapters, yet packs excellent cooling into the bargain, although you do pay a premium for what is a deservingly premium product.

If youre after pure performance and lower temperatures, then the Thermalright Ultra eXtreme 120 is still the undisputed champion of air cooling. Knocking a full 5C off the next closest competition, its still a fantastic cooler, and even more attractive now you can pick up a kit including a LGA 1366 mount and bundled 120mm cooling for a little over 50. If you absolutely must get the absolute maximum cooling from your CPU then the TRUE is still the cooler to get.

But the best cooler on test is undoubtedly the Akasa Nero. Cool, quiet and most importantly reasonably priced, its the only cooler we tested today that doesnt charge the earth for cooling LGA 1366, or any other recent CPU for that matter, very well indeed. Its easily one of the best value CPU coolers on the market today, and comes very highly recommended - If we were spending our own money, the Nero is the heatsink wed get.
