Many shapes and sizes, as well as different materials have surfaced on the market for CPU coolers. So you can expect some pretty cool and sometimes right down weird looking coolers. And one such weird-looking product can be found in Cooler Master's product list. Away from its CPU, the CM Sphere looks like a space shuttle that just landed. The name is pretty intuitive and lets the user know he will deal with a spherical CPU cooler.
Besides its shape, the next eye-popping feature is the cooler's size, which has been designed this way in order to ensure the high-performance CPU of better cooling. The cooler has been specially designed to offer support for both Intel and AMD users, that is why it features connectivity accessories for socket LGA 775, AM2, 940, 939 compatible motherboards. This means that even if you are using one of the latest CPU releases, the CM Sphere can prove to be a solid and reliable solution.
The way the CM Sphere is meant to work is by attracting cooled air from the top and bottom sides of the cooler and transfer it to side parts of the cooler. The sphere heatsink is manufactured out of 100 % copper material and shelters the four existent heatpipes and internal cooler fan. The Blue LED fan can provide a maximum air flow of 84.7 CFM, while running at a maximum fan speed of 2200 RPM. This is quite fast for a CPU fan and you might expect it to also be noisy, but the technical sheet of the CPU marks a 22 dBA noise level.
Besides the obvious functionality of providing better cooling for the CPU, the Blue LED fan can also improve the way your system looks on the inside. This should prove a feature worth to be seriously taken into consideration by technology enthusiasts. The Cooler Master CM Sphere CPU cooler can be acquired online for the approximate price tag of $45.
