Sapphire Vapor-X CPU Cooler Review
WHAT WE LIKED:Easy installation, cool tron-style lighting, super quiet most of the time. Decent performance.
WHAT WE DISLIKED:Fans at high speed are VERY loud, performance could be better for the price. Warranty term unspecified. Very difficult to find for purchase.

We’re all aware of Sapphire and their Vapor-X technology. They’ve been implementing said Vapor-X technology on video cards since the 3870 with great success. Can the Vapor-X technology be adapted for CPU cooling as well? It sure can…but will it perform the same way it does on their graphics cards? Well lucky for us Sapphire was kind enough to send us one of their new Vapor-X Universal CPU coolers to test out. So without further adieu let’s take a look!
SAPPHIRE Technology was first formed as a manufacturer and global supplier of graphics cards when ATI (now a division of AMD) adopted the Add-in Board partner (AIB) model for delivering its technology to market. SAPPHIRE has consistently been the market leader with its graphics products. More recently the SAPPHIRE product range has been extended to include a broad range of mainboards and a number of solutions including the award-winning SAPPHIRE EDGE Series of Mini PCs.
