Poparamiro tests Thermalright VenomousX and Cogage Arrow versus Megahalems and NH-D14

Recommended Posts





It has been more then a month since my colleague went into his cave again, dragging a bag filled with the best air coolers. Determined to find out the ultimate truth, he spent hours, days and weeks of testing, pitting the four mega-coolers against each-other. Thermalright VenomousX and Cogage Arrow meet the ultimate air-cooling monsters, Prolimatech Megahalems and Noctua NH-D14. And much to our suprise, they keep their heads up!!!


Four TDP's, seven fan speeds, fanless testing, extreme TDP/CFM testing, TIM print analysis, you know the drill. It is all there.
