MSI Core Frozr XL RGB CPU Cooler Review

As one of the most recognisable names in the PC hardware market, MSI has a lot to live up to with their latest CPU cooler, the Core Frozr XL. Equipped with dual 120mm fans, and promising big cooling performance, it sounds like the perfect CPU cooler for the PC gaming enthusiast, and the kind of systems they like to build.


“Games are brought to life through hhigh-performancehardware which can get pretty hot in the thick of battle. The cooling of components can make all the difference when you need your hardware to keep its cool for a smooth gaming experience. The MSI Core Frozr XL has been designed using all the experience and cutting-edge technologies of MSI GAMING products to provide best-in-class thermal performance.” – MSI

The fans are MSI TORX 120mm models, which use hydro-dynamic bearings, promising low noise and plenty of airflow. With two fans, we can expect the heat to leave the cooler nice and fast. Of course, getting it from the CPU shouldn’t be a problem either, as this cooler packs an impressive collection of 8 x 6mm “SuperPipes” for a total of 250W heat dissipation. That’s a lot for a cooler of this size, and it should handle just about any CPU on the market today.
