4. Final thoughts
Evercool has kept all the advantages of the already good Buffalo HPFI7-10025 cooler for the 775 socket and just added support for the LGA1366 platform and the demanding Core i7 series. In our last year's comparison, the Buffalo had shown good overall performance and hopefully the current Core i7-920 version continued to be quite competitive. This product will improve the cooling efficiency of your system, either in stock or overclocked modes. The cooler will retail (still no general availability) for as low as $20, which makes it look ever more appealing to our eyes. If we had to complain about something that would be about the installed fan. A better fan would blow even more air to the already efficient main body of the cooler (fins), further boosting the cooling efficiency.
Overall, the Evercool Buffalo is a recommended product for the LGA 1366 platform. It will drop the temperatures of your system and will keep low noise levels down..
