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.
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.
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...
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.
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
Summary: Um den OCZ Gladiator Max abschließend bewerten zu können,
bedarf es zunächst eines Blicks auf den Verkaufspreis von derzeit rund 35 €.
Damit rangiert der Kühler im selben Bereich, wie der OCZ Vendetta 2, dessen
grundsätzliche Stärken übernommen wurden.

Noctua NH-U12P SE1366, OCZ Gladiator Max & Scythe Mugen 2 - bitka za Core i7
1 March 2009
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.
Pros: Cijena, solidna izvedba, lakoća montaže sa Force II mehanizmom.
Cons: Performanse sa Core i7 procesorom, komplicirana montaža ventilatora.
