Let's get down to brass tacks here. Agilent has been promising a better heatsink and fan combination for over a year now and they have certainly delivered on their promise. They have put together the smallest performance cooler we have seen from anyone yet. I think anyone purchasing the ArctiCooler is going to go away and be a very happy customer. This is not to say ANY of the others are BAD products because they certainly are not. Alpha and Global Win have produced great products for us OverClockers for some time now and hopefully they will continue to do so. It just seems that Agilent has come into the picture and raised the bar though. As with many computer parts, competition is going to push this industry forward and we can surely count on Alpha and Global Win to design newer and better products to try and push ahead of their competitors.
One thing that is hindering the ArctiCooler at this point is the fact that it is not yet available on the retail market. We are told we will see product on the shelves soon. SomethingI have not gotten an answer on at this point, is the cost of the cooler. There is no doubt that the actual production cost of the ArctiCooler is less than the Alpha. Hopefully we will see it fall into something less than the $20 range.
