    Bottom Line: With the high clock speeds of CPUs these days, some may not know which kind of Heat Sink CPU Fan to turn to. Many go for the AMD Boxed Processor, we reviewed the CoolerMaster Aero7 Lite (CP5-8J71F) to see how it did against the AMD Stock. Will the inexpensive Aero7 Lite live up to the standards of cooling today’s high CPU speeds? Read on to find out in our official review.......

    Test Setup:

    Processor: AMD Athlon XP 2800+ (Barton Core)

    Cooling: CoolerMaster Aero7 Lite CPU Fan and AMD Stock

    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro Motherboard

    Sound: nForce2 Integrate 5.1 Sound

    Graphics Card: PNY GeForceFX 5200 8x

    RAM: Patriot 512 MB PC3200 DDR400

    Hard Drive: Western Digital 200GB Hard Drive w/ 8mb Buffer (Model WD2000JB)

    Optical Drive: Memorex Dual Format DVD Recorder

    Case: PCMCIS 2008G ATX Case (300W)

    Software Monitoring: Gigabyte EasyTune4 Software (to monitor HSF RPM and Temperature)

    Benchmark:

    Prime95 (for Full Load testing)

    *Note: When testing, environment was in a closed case. My Power Supply did not have a circulating fan at the bottom to draw heat away from the CPU. Your results will most likely vary better if your case has a circulating fan at the bottom of your Power Supply and/or vary better depending on the number of case fans installed.
