Introduction

With the recent attention shift to closed loop CPU water cooling, air coolers are starting to move out of the limelight. But, the fact is, good air coolers still offer features that water coolers are not able to. That is exactly what Cooler Master has done with their newest CPU air cooler, the GeminII S524.  Rather then compete directly with the new behemoth coolers, the GeminII shifts its focus from simply cooling the CPU to also cooling nearby components. Read on to find out if that will be enough to keep the competition at bay.

Rather then compete directly with the new behemoth coolers, the GeminII shifts its focus from simply cooling the CPU to also cooling nearby components. Read on to find out if that will be enough to keep the competition at bay. The GeminII performed pretty well with CPU temps hitting 32 degrees at idle and 51 degrees at load. But it really shines when we start to look at RAM and MOSFET temps. When the GeminII was pointed over the RAM, they hovered at 36 degrees under full load while they were closer to 42 degrees with the V8. It’s the same story with the MOSFETs. They stayed around 43 degrees at full load with the V8 but only 37 degrees with the GeminII. One thing that you have to take into consideration when looking at these results is that you must make the choice of what you want cooled. Although both the RAM and the MOSFETs have good temperatures with the GeminII, it is only able to actively cool one of them depending on its orientation. Source [...]
