Should have compared it with the heat sink they made to see if it could possibly be worse.

It's like jokes are completely lost on you. A simple lol or kek next time. Instead it's *random fact or whatever*

Well, I tend to not get jokes until they're explained to me, or blatantly obvious. I'm not a very fun person :P

I live in morocco and here i can buy a cpu cooler (made in china) for less then 5$ that is waaaay better than the one is this video (i guss)
I had an E5300 OC to 3.5 Ghz with no over heating
it said cooler master but i dont know if its a rip-off

PS: the fan can go jet engine noise if you put it at max speed on bios (and it shows like 5k RPM in bios)

pics :




The fan is running because i was using it to cool my RAM :)

@nicklmg just browsing yt when I found this,why is it not on float plain?


It is: 

Just due to simultaneous releases recently it has been there for about 3 weeks rather than the typical 1 week :P 

Sign up for Floatplane. Do it. It's fantastic.

Buy heatsinks on Amazon: http://geni.us/cBmnurZ

Buy heatsinks on Newegg: http://geni.us/NIEa0d


How good is a heatsink that costs only $5?



This one is not the cheapest in our state, the one below just costs $3.28 

AND can keep the temperature of a  Core2Duo E7500 @ 36° C (this temperature is recorded after 5 hours of gameplay- AC Brotherhood)(temperature readings taken with OpenHardware Monitor) the ambient temperature being at 28° CScreenshot_2018-04-26-10-21-19.thumb.png.eef1ccf58424a5544f77c08b3205ccaf.png
