Cooler Master Aero 7+ Plus Heatsink ReviewFormer staff writer - November 2, 2003
As you can see in the information provided by Cooler Master, the Blower is designed to push air directly into the center of the heatsink, whereas traditional fans create a "blind spot" over the center. Well see in a moment how much better the blower is over a traditional and not so traditional fan. :)
The blower fan is dual ball bearing fan, rather than the rifle bearing that Cooler Master is popular for using. As you can see in the picture of the bottom of the blower, it's completely unobstructed, thus allowing air to blow directly over the entire heat sink.
Cooler Master is branded into the top of the blower, with Aero V branded into the side. - Now this is my question, why "Aero V"? Isn't this the Aero 7+, or the Aero VII+?
As with most heat sinks these days, the Cooler Master Aero 7+ fan is adjustable, allowing you to "turn down the volume" when your not using your computer. The Aero 7+ also includes to mounting brackets for the controller, so you can chose to mount the adjustment knob in either a spare 3.5" drive bay, or a spare PCI bracket. The PCI bracket is silver, and looks great with a Silver/Aluminum case, but those of you with other colored cases are just out of luck.
The last thing included with the package was the Cooler Master case badge. Nothing much, but it does add something different to your case.
