Sapphire takes their Vapor-X knowhow to CPU cooling

Vapor-X graphics cards are certainly recognizable as Sapphire has been creating them for a while now, but a CPU cooler is a completely new thing for them.  With the two fans installed this beast can weigh up to 1.5kg and is 135 x 110.4 x 163.5mm (5.3 x 4.3 x 6.4 in), so make sure that your case is big enough to contain a cooler of this size.  It also sits very close to the board which can be a problem for motherboards who have DIMM slots very close to the CPU socket.  If you can install this cooler you will be impressed by the performance as it beat out the other coolers that Overclockers Club compared it to.  The MSRP is $65, quite affordable for overclockers that need a heatsink of this magnitude.

"I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at how the Vapor-X Universal CPU Cooler handled the thermal load of the Core i7 2600K and especially how it outperformed what has been my go to heat sink for family builds: the Noctua NH-U12P. Sapphire's Vapor-X Universal CPU cooler performed two degrees Celsius better than the Noctua at both stock and overclocked speeds. The Phantek's cooler shows more cooling is available with a massive air cooling solution that provides an 8 °C improvement over the Vapor-X when the CPU is overclocked. The Vapor-X is not meant to compete at that level yet still delivers acceptable temperatures when overclocked."
