Summary and final thoughts:

The performance of the LEPA LV12 lightweight, single tower cooler was quite a surprise. It exceeded expectations for a small single tower air cooler in a push configuration only. The temperatures maintained during testing of the LEPA LV12 were impressive, and after 15 minutes of running at 100% load with stock settings remained well below the processor’s thermal limits. In addition, with voltages at 1.35 and a 4.4GHz overclock, despite the high temperatures recorded, we honestly did not expect a cooler of this size with only one fan to perform as well as it did.

Installation of the LEPA LV12 was simple and straight-forward and you’re left with plenty of room for aftermarket video cards. Also RAM with higher profiles is not a problem. If we had anything to nitpick about it would be that we would like to see a four point corner to corner lock down of the LEPA LV12, and not a two point with the bar running across the middle of the block and processor.

To sum things up, if you’re looking for a little more than an entry level cooler with high performance along with low noise, then the LEPA LV12 delivers. It is good looking, and for someone that is not a heavy overclocker, it is a great solution to replace that hot running stock air cooler. We easily recommend the LEPA LV12 for your next purchase despite its lack of an extra fan and its two-point lockdown. With an MSRP of just $44.00 USD, it should should definitely be worth a second look, and the LEPA LV12BK CPU Air Cooler receives Pure Overclock’s Great Hardware Award.
