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
