Best Air Cooler

A Round Up of Top Budget-Friendly and Expensive Air Coolers for Intel and AMD Platform.

A CPU cooler can highly affect the performance of a system, especially in the case of an unlocked process, as you can run the processor at higher clock speeds as long as you are not thermally throttled. The latest processors run way hotter than processors of the past, which is why All-in-one liquid coolers are needed more than ever. In this article, we will check the best CPU coolers on the market.

There are two kinds of CPU coolers; air coolers and liquid coolers. Air coolers are much more reliable than liquid coolers, especially when you have to pair them with these gaming motherboards. When it comes to performance, an average AIO cooler is quite better than an average air cooler, although there are some air coolers that are as good as high-end AIO coolers. 

The most popular manufacturers of CPU coolers are Corsair, Thermaltake, NZXT, Cooler Master, and DeepCool. Unfortunately, most modern high-end processors have stopped coming with a cooler. That’s why we have to choose and go with the aftermarket cooling solutions. All these companies produce both air coolers and AIO coolers, although AIO coolers seem to be more popular among gamers these days.

The performance of air coolers depends on the size of the heat sink, the number of heat pipes, and the specifications of the fans, while the performance of AIO coolers mainly depend on the size of the radiator and the quality of fans.
