Default asetek VapoChill Micro Review: Ultra Low Noise

asetek started with phase-change cooling, then they added water-cooling units to their product list, and today we see their first air cooled heatsink. Is their evolution backwards? The VapoChill Micro is very competitively priced, promises to remove up 150W of CPU generated heat, silently, and it weighs less then a feather. Too good to be true? Letīs find out.

Considering this guy ran the cased test - with ambient temp lower, the result is so so..

well, case ventilation and PSU placing will be vital to getting optimal performance from your CPU cooler

apparantly, having the correct orientation is vital to performance of the Micro unit, it needs to point upwards, so it needs to be turned around 180°C in this picture http://www.madshrimps.be/articles/As...iotke-8324.jpg

this applies only when it's tested inside a Tower Case, and does not matter when testing on a horizontal testbed.
