    Looks exactly like the Cooler Master 212+/Evo. Similarly priced as well. Goes to show that you don't need to spend an arm and a leg on some giant monstrosity to get great cooling performance AND noise levels out of a HSF.

    That's not bad at all! Especially for £25!

    With the extensive range of AIO liquid coolers on the market, £25-£30 seems like the ideal price bracket for air coolers; especially as there are now a handful that proven performers at that price.

    Unless I missed it, I would have liked to have seen this with a two fan set up. Also, are these new model fans as I can't seem to find them for sale on their own anywhere?

    We only test with the fans a cooler is supplied with, but I'd say this single fan does a pretty good job! And yes, the fans do appear to be new models specifically for the Argon range.

    I couldn't find this fan either so bought the Silverstone AP123 to complete the 2 fan set up.
