Zaward Sylphee ZCJ003

The age of the heat pipe is upon us. Ever since it broke onto the scene, cooling devices of every style and shape have emerged, some of which seem to defy logic. It is assured to us then that the age of the aluminum block cooler is long gone, hopefully never to be seen again.

The engineers at Zaward are something like a modern-day Leonardo da Vinci, because they have taken to a unique style of functional cooling devices. One of their featured products is the Sylphee aluminum CPU cooler. Benchmark Reviews tested this dual-heat pipe dual-impeller cooler, and it proved to be a very unique product, with results just as uncommon. Read on to see if function came before fashion, or if these looks can kill your system.

I have a feeling that Zaward knows that not everyone is open to trying out something radically new. This seems the case, because the retail packaging does a decent job of disguising the unique shape of the Sylphee. The packaging reveals only hints of what lies within, but hopefully the contents offer a pleasant surprise for consumers.
