There are a lot of competitors in the world of coolers and a lot of different technologies.  In the field of air cooling, there are options ranging from regular fin heat sinks to thin-fin sinks, heat pipes, fanless silent cooling, and big hunks of fan that circulate enough air to lift your computer off the desk.

With the newer processors coming out pumping juice through the core, more heat is being generated.  The goal of the coolers is to dissipate this heat as effectively as possible.  The one that I get to take a look at today is the nPower NPH K8-2.  We want to extend our thanks to the people at Sidewinder Computers for sponsoring this review.
