The SilenX EFZ-120HA5 is a good cooler, with high quality construction, nice looks, simple installing system, and a beautiful box. It is also very quiet and has an attractive price tag.
However, its performance is barely mediocre. Due to its construction details (direct-touch heatpipes, closed sides, rugged fin surface, etc.), we were expecting better cooling from it.
Being a good, nice-looking, quiet, and affordable CPU cooler, but with no outstanding cooling performance, the SilenX EFZ-120HA5 receives the Hardware Secrets Bronze Award.
