Introduction

Today Evercool has sent us a sample of their Sharks CPU Cooler. If you havenít heard of Evercool you must be living under a rock or something. Evercool competes with high-end, silent coolers and devices which aid cooling. Evercool was established in 1992, now with over 1,200 employeesí they are competing in the ever changing computer cooling market.

Packaging

Although packaging may sell the product, its not the key thing. People would like performance. But otherwise Evercool has put some work into a well packed box for a cooler this size.


Specifications

DC Fan Size :
80 x 80 x 15 mm
Base Material :
Heat pipe
Bearing Type :
Ever Lubricate bearing (Long Life bearing)
Speed :
2000 ~ 3500 RPM
Noise Level :
18 ~ 28 dBA
Max Air flow :
23.4 ~ 41 CFM

Just looking at those specifications we can see its going to perform quite well. I might also point out this cooler is 459.5grams!!!

Compatibility

The cooler will fit on all the AMD K8 CPUís if they have the standard K8 Retention module; this includes the Opteron/Athlon X2/Athlon FX/Athlon 64/Sempron. The CPU cooler is also able to be mounted to the Intel LGA775 with the included bracket.

Whatís In The Box
  • The Sharks Cooler
  • Manual
  • Thermal Paste (Evercoolís thermal paste, 1 serving)
  • K8 Bracket and Screws
  • LGA775 Brackets and Spring Screws

The Sharks

The Sharks is one of those tower coolers, though this doesnít mean it weighs over 1kg, it just means the heat pipes are in ďUĒ shapes there are 4 points where the heat pipes join with the sink. Mainly in the center of each side of the two sections, this also gives the cooler strength to stand upright without falling into bits. The heat pipes are also a joint at the main copper block which is where the CPU joins with the cooler.




The fan on the Sharks is quite odd because it is smaller in thickness than a normal 80mm fan. Evercool has also linked the Silent/Overclock switch so it doesnít change the voltage of the LEDís in the fan which is great for all the people who want more red colouring in their case.


The cooler on is own looks great, with the red coming from the center and the size really makes it more seen in the dark, because of the intensity of the LEDís from the fan.


Installation

Installing the Sharks onto a AMD K8 System is real easy, first you remove the fan and the top cover. Then you screw the K8 Bracket to the cooler and youíre ready to mount, make sure you apply the thermal paste too.
