Cooler Master Seidon 240M: Dual Fan Liquid CPU Cooler

Cooling
The Cooler Master Seidon 240M is a self-contained liquid CPU cooler with a dual fan radiator. Though equipped with a very quiet pump, its low noise performance doesn't justify the US$100 price when compared to top air coolers.

Phanteks PH-TC12DX CPU Cooler

Cooling
The colorful Phanteks PH-TC12DX shares the same DNA as the massive dual tower PH-TC14PE, in a more modestly sized single tower body and 12cm fans.

Phanteks PH-TC90LS Mini Cooler

Cooling
The PH-TC90LS is Phanteks' take on a budget, low-profile CPU cooler. The question is whether this basic 45 mm tall heatsink with an thin, open frame fan can truly take the heat.

Thermalright TRUE Spirit 120M CPU Heatsink

Cooling
Bonus Xmas Day review: Thermalright touts the TRUE Spirit 120M as the world's smallest 120mm fan tower cooler. Though it stands only 146mm tall and lacks the traditional Thermalright nickel-plating, it still packs a potent performance punch.

SilverStone Heligon HE02: Monster Fanless CPU Cooler

Cooling
The SilverStone Heligon HE02 has all the design elements of a superb fanless CPU cooler. It's huge, has wide fin spacing, and its odd asymmetrical design takes advantage of all the space around a typical CPU socket.

Phanteks PH-TC14PE Dual Fan CPU Heatsink

Cooling
The Phanteks PH-TC14PE bears a suspicious resemblance to the renowned Noctua NH-D14, with a similar construction, shape, and even mounting style. If immitation is the greatest form of flattery, Phanteks is head over heels in love.
