Sapphire Vapor-X CPU Cooler Review

Rating: 8.0.

Renowned for enthusiast-grade graphics cards that push the boundaries of performance, Sapphire is on the hunt for success with the company’s first ever CPU cooler – the Vapor-X. Utilising vapour chamber technology, can Sapphire replicate the success of the critically-acclaimed Vapor-X coolers used on their graphics cards?

A direct-contact vapour chamber base should allow for a rapid rate of efficient heat transferal when coupled with the quartet of 7mm heatpipes. Dissipating the transferred heat energy is a task for the Vapor-X’s densely-packed aluminium fin array and pair of 2200 RPM blue LED fans.

Sapphire claims up to 200W of heat dissipation with the Vapor-X CPU cooler. Can the vapour chamber technology boost Sapphire’s Vapor-X CPU cooler into a class-leading performance category?
