OCZ Vendetta 2

10 June 2009
  • Conclusion: The Vendetta 2 is certainly a pretty good cooler. While it may not be as good as, say a TRUE 120, it’s still much cheaper, on top of having a fan included. This cooler is more geared towards the weekend overclocker rather than the more heavy overclocker like the TRUE. Part of what gave the Vendetta 2 an advantage against the Silentator is its heat pipes. Not only did they directly touch the CPU, but they also where larger than the Silentator’s.

  • Excerpt: Some time ago I looked at OCZ's Vendetta cooler and in this review I'm going to take a brief look at its new brother: the Vendetta 2. This new cooler looks a lot like it's older brother, but it has a bigger heatsink and uses a larger fan to deliver better cooling performance.

OCZ Vendetta2 review

1 June 2008
  • Conclusion: We must first point out that OCZ did it again. Since we are already used to the fact they provide top level enthusiast hardware, the performance of the big Vendetta was by no means surprising. The innovative heatpipe direct touch design is responsible for the superior heat dissipation, and the densely packed fins with little dents provide much more dissipating surface than some other coolers.

  • Summary: The original Vendetta cooler performs well and is still a great option for those with limited space, but the cooling performance and low noise operation of the Vendetta 2 are really impressive. By taking the original design and scaling it up to accept a 120mm fan, has created an enthusiast grade cooler that isn't so large and heavy that it might cause installation issues.
  • Pros: » Strong cooling performance, » Low noise operation, » Competitively priced, » Push pin mounts for Intel processors, » 24 month warranty
  • Cons: » Push pins can be difficult to access given size of cooler, » Difficulty installing rubber mounts into fan holes

Expert Review

13 May 2008
  • Summary: The Vendetta 2 heatsink is decked out for stealth in a couple different ways; for starters the fan is held in place with vibration absorbing rubber fan posts. It also features three large copper heatpipes that make direct contact with the CPU.

OCZ Vendetta 2 CPU Cooler

25 April 2008
  • Summary: Looking at the results of our tests, I was pleased with the overall cooling peformance of the OCZ Vendetta 2. It wasn't one of the best on our list, but it matched the Xigmatek HDT-D1284 and it was one of the quietest. Manufacturers are always trying to find the perfect balance between cooling performance and low noise level. And I have to say ... it's not an easy task.
  • Pros: - Good cooling performance, - Heatpipe-to-CPU Direct contact, - Intel and AMD compatible, - Ultra quiet 120mm fan (20-32 dBa), - Price

  • Excerpt: Since reviewing a vast array of direct heat-pipe coolers over the past week or two, we’ve come to a conclusion that the performance offering from them is pretty damn good. The prime examples of HDT coolers we’ve tested are mainly from the likes of Xigmatek and Sunbeamtech.

OCZ Vendetta 2 CPU Cooler Review

  • Conclusion: After working with this unit for over a week it is safe to say we have a good handle on this cooler and while it may share the same lineage as the Xigmatek S1283, it is not the same cooler in the least. It is only natural that parallels will be drawn be drawn between the two products due to their similarities so we have to bring these comparisons to the forefront yet again.
