OCZ Gladiator (Max) CPU Cooler

13 January 2009
  • Summary: OCZ Technology have successfully produce two CPU coolers that will supercede their older Vendetta coolers. Both the Gladiator and the Gladiator Max offered excellent cooling performance during both idle and full load. In fact, the Gladiator Max (120mm version) easily matched the much noisier but impressive Enzotech Ultra-X CPU cooler. The heatpipe direct touch technology is a great way of dissipating excess heat.
  • Pros: - Excellent cooling performance, - Heatpipe Direct Touch technology, - Anti-vibration rubber connectors, - Ultra quiet fans, - Intel and AMD compatible
  • Cons: - None I can think of ...

OCZ Gladiator MAX review

2 December 2008
  • Excerpt: Quite some time ago, we got an interesting product from OCZ, called the Vindicator. It was a 120mm 6 heatpipe cooler that we fell in love with after just a couple of hours with it. It was easy to install, had great performance due to the huge surface area of the fins and it looked quite nice. Its successor, the Vendetta 2 was even better, with its heat-pipe direct touch design and the lumpy fins for better heat dissipation.

OCZ Gladiator Max

15 October 2008
  • Conclusion: The Gladiator Max CPU cooler from OCZ Technologies performed fairly well during testing, (even though it was a short lived testing) making this product a mainstream user class. I feel this product would have performed better if it included or used a retention plate to help keep the motherboard from getting bowed during mounting, as well as having a smoother, more polished surface on the CPU cooler’s base as most CPU cooler’s perform better once a retention plate is used...

  • Summary: OCZ's Gladiator Max heatsink is an extension of the Vendetta 2 model, except that it now utilizes four large diameter copper heatpipes and a somewhat different aluminum fin geometry.

OCZ Gladiator MAX CPU Cooler Review

Hardware Canucks
6 August 2009
  • Conclusion: The OCZ Gladiator Max certainly is a very interesting cooler. We may not like its looks as much as the Vendetta 2's but this is a personal preference and we are sure a lot of people will actually prefer its more graceful lines to that of the stark lines of the Vendetta 2. Though when all is said and done a coolers looks will only get you so far; and when the heat is on and voltage is rising you want a cooler that can handle to heat with aplomb and this is one area the...
  • Pros: -Very good performance, -Good packaging, -Unique Styling, -, Tool-less installation (screwdriver required for 775 systems)
  • Cons: - Lower quality fan than the Vendetta 2s, - Not as good cooling performance as the Vendetta 2, - Price, - Still pushpin installation for Intel 775, - Fan installation issues

  • Conclusion: So we have to do here with a properly priced CPU cooler and a good candidate solution for your overclocked PC system, especially if the noise coming out your PC case is already disturbing you.
  • Cons: Included 120mm rotating fan doesn't help the product get a high rank in thermal tests, Too bad we can't a second 120mm fan and further increase performance

Noctua NH-U12P SE1366, OCZ Gladiator Max & Scythe Mugen 2 - bitka za Core i7

PC Ekspert
24 April 2010
  • Conclusion: S obzirom da smo jedino Scytheov Mugen 2 našli na našem tržištu usporedbu za domaće tržište je nemoguće napraviti. Usput budi rečeno cijena Mugena 2 je oko 340kn što je po našem mišljenju previše jer na Američkom tržištu košta nevjerojatnih 32 USD ili gotovo polovicu toga iznosa. Mugen 2 je vrlo solidan proizvod koji je u svakom pogedu bolji od OCZ-ovog osim naravno po lakoći montaže.
  • Pros: Cijena, solidna izvedba, lakoća montaže sa Force II mehanizmom.
  • Cons: Performanse sa Core i7 procesorom, komplicirana montaža ventilatora.

OCZ Gladiator Max

10 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Seit dem Erscheinen der Core i7 Prozessoren ist die Nachfrage nach passenden Nachrüstkühlern relativ groß. Der Grund dafür ist natürlich das zu laute und uneffektive Modell von Intel, welches in der Boxed Version dabei ist. Momentan ist der Markt mit reinen LGA1366 nicht wirklich übersättigt und die Auswahl ist nur gering. Ein passendes Modell, welches für ein Upgrade in Frage käme wäre der OCZ Gladiator Max mit dem LGA1366 Umbaukit.

27 July 2009
  • Conclusion: OCZ Gladiator MAX, sessiz ve performanslı bir soğutucu. Özellikle işlemci soğutucularının çıkartıkları gürültülerden ve düşük performanslarından bıkıp usanan kullanıcılar için tavsiye edilebilecek nitelikleri taşıyan soğutucunun 66 $'lk bir fiyat etiketi var. Etiketi, sınıfındaki ve eşdeğer skorlara imza atan diğer soğutuculara göre bir miktar fazla. Ancak kaliteli malzeme yapısı ve temiz işçiliği ile bu farkı hak ediyor.
