Montech Air Cooler 210 Air CPU Cooler Review

How Much Does it Cost?

At the time of writing this review, we were unable to find any retailers who currently had the Montech Air Cooler 210 in stock. Our best guess in this regard is that while the product has officially been released, global shipping issues might be having an impact on actually getting this on shelves. – We are, however, told that the Montech Air Cooler 210 does come with an MSRP of $54.99/£49.99 and, as such, in terms of high-performance cooling solutions, this certainly seems to represent a very competitive price point.

Coming with a 3-year warranty, you know that this is a product built to last, but in truth, I see no reason why Montech couldn’t have done something a bit mad here by offering something like 5, or possibly 10 years. I simply can’t see any reason why this cooler shouldn’t easily last that duration.

Overview

The Montech Air Cooler 210 is, without a doubt, a high-performance cooling solution. A factor that has no doubt been bolstered with its faultless build quality and exceptionally smart aesthetic choices. In terms of performance, it easily handled everything our testing threw at it and did so while making barely any notable levels of noise. As noted in the testing aspect of the review, however, I think that while the standard fan setting is perfectly acceptable, the more savvy consumer could find a better solution in the Montech Air Cooler 210 by tweaking the PWM settings to compromise on a little more noise for very likely notably lower temperatures.

In its standard form, however, the Montech Air Cooler 210 is definitely a strong contender and for such a relatively humble manufacturer, this definitely trades punches with the premium-level of cooling solutions which, comparatively speaking, are significantly more expensive.

Should I Buy One?

Offering high levels of performance, sleek aesthetics, and some exceptionally solid ARGB lighting effects, the Montech Air Cooler 210 would be a great choice for consumers to make. Although Montech may disagree, and perhaps would not like me to say this, I view the Air Cooler 210 as something of an excellent ‘bang for buck’ product. – It offers a level of performance that easily trades blows with significantly more expensive premium-level cooling solutions, but also manages the arguably difficult task with air coolers of, aesthetically speaking, looking fantastic.

If you want a strong, vibrant, inexpensive cooling solution that can easily handle some hefty workloads while barely making a whisper, then the Montech Air Cooler 210 is arguably one of the best choices you can make.

Pros

  • Excellent levels of CPU temperature control with a notable highlight being its low acoustic output
  • Build quality is beyond question
  • Strong and vibrant ARGB lighting affects – But also looks great with the lightshow off!
  • Comes with a good quality manual RGB control hub – Ideal for those who don’t have ARGB sync compatible motheboards
  • Excellent value for money
  • Near perfect compatibility with RAM

Cons

  • The name… Just the name…

Neutral

  • Hard to say whether consumers will see this as the high-performance on a budget cooling solution it is, or whether they’d prefer to spend more on a better-known premium-level product.
