OCZ Vendetta CPU Cooler

Conclusion

Conclusion
 
The OCZ Vendetta is a small and unique cooler that really gets some great performance. It's well built and easy to install which is a great thing to have in a cooler.
 
Performance is almost on par with the best air cooler we've had at Overclock3D, the Noctua NH-U12P, which is a credit to OCZ for sure. The strange base seems to do the trick and the cooler looks great, as most heatpipe coolers do.
 
Retailing at £22.99 at one of our recommended retailers, Komplett, the OCZ Vendetta is a little gem of a cooler for the price.

The only criticism of the Vendetta I have is that the fan is too loud to be called a "quiet" cooler. If you don't mind a fair amount of fan noise then you may seriously want to consider one.
 
 
The Good
+ Excellent cooling
+ Good looking
+ Very small
+ Cheap

The Mediocre
* Not quite small enough for a HTPC

"OCZ have always been known for their high performance memory and PSU's, but have recently be trying their hand in the cooling market. We take a look at their latest invention..the Tempest."
