ThermoLab BARAM CPU Cooler Tested
ThermoLab is a newcomer here at Madshrimps; their packaging is down to earth cardboard box, the BARAM CPU cooler is high end material, comes without 120mm fan, but with enough clips to mount 2 of them; it has a large collection of tightly packed aluminum fins which dissipate heat transfered by the 5 heatpipes which are joined in an extremely nicely flat and polished copper base.

No push pins here, this cooler is screwed on tight with a metal back plate for optimal mounting pressure; it lines up nicely with the rear case exhaust:

Performance tests were done with our reference low noise GlobalWIn NCB, the noisy Titan 115CFM and the insanely loud Delta 120mm fan;

The tightly packed fins means this CPU cooler is meant for high airflow, and it shows, with the slower NCB fan performance is quite good, but not good enough to come near Ultra-120 Extreme territory; With the faster Titan 115CFM the BARAM gets closer... but you can really see it shine when we slap on the 3200rpm Delta fan, trailing the Ultra-120 Extreme by only 1C which is well within the margin of error.
