Any info on the this air cooler?

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07FHLQX2F/ref=ya_aw_od_pi?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Just purchased the air cooler above. I figured spending 20 bucks for the sake of science wasn't a bad purchase. I figure as long as the base is not concaved it should be a good performer since it uses 6 heatpipes.

But I was just wondering if anybody has ever used or heard of the of the brand.

Thanks

Saying it has 6 heatpipes so it must be good is like saying you have 6 tires for your car so car must be good.

Number of heatpipes does not mean much if anything about how good/bad a cooler is because there are many different kinds of heatpipes being made/sold.


The fan looks like a joke gone bad.

This could be a diamond in the rough, like the AliExpress Snowman cooler. Let OP spend his do and take the win (or loss) for the sake of CPU cooling.

Well, I can tell ya one thing about the fan. Look at the pics, it's listed as PWM but has 3 wires... 100% not a PWM fan lol.

The cooler itself looks pretty good on the pics if the actual build quality is as good as the sample pics.

Quick scan through Amazon reviews gives the impression it's not very good, at least the mount, and impeller is obviously not designed for airflow.

This would be for science and curiosity. 20 bucks is a chance I willing to take. I will test it with master air fans (not the best but I have a lot of them). I have a hyper 212, a cooler master ma 621p, and a 5 heat pipe old school noctua.

As far as mounting, I can make my own mounts in case I can install it correctly. I have gotten lucky in the past with these knock off coolers. I purchased a 6 heat pipe 90mm cooler from eBay for 15 bucks in the past and out performed on par with a hyper 212.

Like mentioned before I will be testing this on a 3900x, let's see how it turns out. I think I might have to lap it, last I messed around with this no name coolers the base was concave. Will prob test over the weekend.

If you have to lap it be very careful. Heatpipes have already been ground pretty thin.

coal rolling bro's would like to have a word with you. having a dually drastically increases your mating chances in the swamp as there's no other way to differentiate between beta tier bros with trucks, and alpha tier, aside from tire count. also, # of confederate flags has been proven to also increase your chances.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

Looks precisely like every other generic cooler, probably some ODM source where anyone can order a bunch with their logo to sell.

like 99% of racing style desk chairs. Even the high quality "all metal, ball bearing, memory foam and genuine leather" units come from the exact same factory.
