This page will be regularly updated with the latest of our CPU cooler benchmark performance numbers, including links to CPU cooler reviews, comparisons against stock coolers (and discussion over whether it’s worth upgrading something like an AMD Wraith or Prism cooler), and more. The page will run on a slight latency from our latest reviews, but will be updated a few times a year with larger charts than you’ll find in those latest reviews. There are a few reasons for the truncated reviews charts, but the main one is simply legibility: Particularly in video format, it’s hard to fit much more than ~20 items (with 2-3 bars each) while still maintaining usefulness, like on mobile. The other is to focus the discussion or viewer in the short time a chart is on screen. This page doesn’t have those limitations.
We’d like our audience to think of these Mega Charts round-ups as an “LTS” (or Long-Term Support) version of our data. They don’t get updated constantly, but allow us to maintain publication of quick-reference material and a stable set of data. This is a permanent page. This URL will always contain the Mega Charts round-ups for coolers.
