OCZ Technology Vendetta 2 CPU Cooler
May 23, 2008

In late 2007 OCZ Technology sent over a new CPU cooler for us to evaluate, and it did quite well in its review. The Vendetta performed well thanks in part to the heatpipes coming in direct contact with the processor, an innovation in heatpipe cooling that many manufacturers were starting to use at the time. The main problem with this cooler was that when the 92mm fan was running at full speed it was way too loud to tolerate.

OCZ Technology recently released the Vendetta 2 CPU cooler, and right off the bat it looks like the same design was used, but scaled up in order to work with a 120mm fan. A larger fan could translate to lower speeds, lower noise, higher airflow, and perhaps improved performance. This review is going to see if the Vendetta design has evolved into an even better product with the release of version two.


The promotional image above shows the Vendetta 2 CPU cooler, which features three U-shaped copper heatpipes, an aluminum base, a tightly spaced array of aluminum fins, and an OCZ labeled 120mm cooling fan. Before taking a closer look at the Vendetta 2 CPU cooler provided for review, let's look at some published data taken from the OCZ Technology website...
