We’re spending a lot of our time at X-bit labs testing air CPU coolers. Last year we tested as many as 26 of them and, judging by new product announcements, the year of 2013 is going to be no less laborious. We have to admit, however, that we are focused on rather expensive and large coolers whose performance is exceedingly high for most users who don’t really need it for their practical applications.
Far more popular are inexpensive and relatively small coolers capable of ensuring adequate CPU temperature than the so-called boxed ones at a lower level of noise. So in this review we are going to take a look at two such products which are called Scythe Katana 4 and Thermalright TRUE Spirit 90.
Both have been released recently but are already available in stores. They have the same type and size of the heatsink and cost about the same money, so we want to compare them in our today's tests.
