Evercool was founded in 1992 and has grown to be a very successful company employing approximately 1000 people. The primary market segment Evercool cater for is the OEM system builders like HP and Acer for example. Today I’ll be taking a look at their latest CPU cooler which is aimed at the enthusiast segment - the ‘Buffalo’ CPU cooler.
The Buffalo is one of the many heat sinks on the market that utilize ‘heat pipes’ to transfer heat from the base to the cooling fins. Heat pipes have revolutionized the high-performance cooler market since they are able to transfer much more heat than a more conventional heat sink made from copper or aluminium that you would be accustomed to not so long ago. Because of this heat pipe coolers have become pretty much the norm for cooling any high-end components, and there are a lot of coolers by various brands on the market now.
Modern CPU’s can generate huge amounts of heat, quad core processors especially. Usually the stock cooling solutions provided are ‘only just’ capable of dissipating the heat generated so it is sometimes a good idea to purchase an aftermarket cooler to prolong the life of your CPU. If you are overclocking then aftermarket cooling is essential, but a lot of the high end coolers are very pricey. Evercool have presented us with a good alternative that is very reasonably priced. Read on to see how this cooler performs compared to another rival heat pipe cooler.
