Sapphire Vapor-X CPU Cooler Review

We compared the Sapphire Vapor-X CPU cooler to Thermaltake‘s enthusiast-loved Frio and Arctic‘s good value Freezer Xtreme Rev. 2.

Our graphs show actual temperatures of the CPU, not delta temperatures.

Ambient temperature was maintained at 21°C.

Sapphire’s Vapor-X can’t match the performance of Thermaltake’s five 8mm heatpipe-touting Frio which also uses higher – 2500 – RPM fans. Considering its slower fans and utilisation of four smaller diameter heatpipes, the Vapor-X’s ability to give the Frio some cooling competition is worthy of praise.

The Sapphire Vapor-X does manage to outperform Arctic’s value-orientated Freezer Xtreme Rev. 2 which can’t quite keep pace with either of its physically larger, more enthusiast-intended competitors.
