When it comes down to the bottom line the ThermoLab Baram 2010 cooler does the job it is designed to do with a bit of help. I say this because the cooler is specifically designed to be used with two 120mm cooling fans but none are included in the box. For the price that it currently is selling and to remain completely competitive, some sort of active cooling fan should have been included. When paired with the right set of fans then the BARAM 2010 does do a really good job of keeping your hardware as cool as can be. With a maximum thermal dissipation point of 250 watts this air based cooler can handle any current processor on the market including the new six core beasts from AMD and Intel. The Baram 2010 supports every current socket so comparability will not be an issue either.
Everything about the ThermoLab Baram 2010 was a breeze. Installation is a snap with the included hardware and thermal paste. The unique design dissipates heat quickly. The only noise from the cooler was made by the cooling fans, which were high speed so this was normal, and there were no vibrations from the fan mounts like I feared there would be. All in all, this is a decent cooler for a good price just be ready to shell out more bucks to purchase the fans needed to run this beast.
