Special: The probably most beautiful CPU coolers
What are the important characteristics of a CPU cooler? Performance and silence for sure. Or rather the look? We show you the most beautiful creations which have been in our test lab during the last years.
The ideal CPU cooler is fast and securely mounted and keeps even the hottest processor at low temperatures without making too much noise. If the cooler looks like a brick rather than like a high-end component does not really matter. Many people might say "form follows function”. But reality often looks different.
Since many years the cooler manufacturers have pleased us with designs which have not much to do with a CPU cooler at first sight. And obviously there are enough customers who prefer looks to performance - whereas these two characteristics do not have to be mutually exclusive. In our gallery we present noble, exceptional, strange and simply timeless beautiful CPU coolers.
