The Evercool HPFI7-10025 is an old model that we have already tested in our labs, but today we test the version that supports Intel's LGA 1366 platform. While we won't get into many details about the cpu cooler itself, we remind you that in our previous LGA 775 platform tests, the cooler had performed very well offering great efficiency and low operation noise. Let's hope that the cooler will also be that good win the the Socket 1366 tests.

Let's take a look to the device. The retail package hasn't changed much, except from the top right logo indicating the LGA 1366 support:

The product uses a 92mm fan at the front, while the overall design leaves us with some questions about the cooling efficiency since air will "escape" from the side instead of going to the back of the cooler and therefore, dissipate heat. Well, we will see how the cpu cooler performs later on.

The base is made of copper and two U-shaped heatpipes are conducting the heat to the aluminum fins.

Installing the cooler will take you no more than a minute. The product uses Intel's standard mounting mechanism so it can be installed without any problems and doesn't require from you to remove the motherboard from your PC case.
