Up Close:  The Cooler

You've probably noticed that the Ereboss Black isn't actually Black, which is a shame really as we think such a large slab of cooler would look awesome all Black.  The suffix does in fact refer to the all Black fan which comes with it, differing as it does from the original and still available Red and white fan version more usually associated with Raijintek products.

The Ereboss measures 140x110.5x160mm (WxDxH) and weighs in at just over 800g. so is most definitely on the larger side of CPU coolers.  If you're thinking of putting it into a budget case where lack of width can be an issue it's well worth checking you have at least 160mm of headroom to play with.  Although the Ereboss comes with just one fan, fittings are available to mount a second unit onto the 33 element fin stack should you so desire.  As you can see from the images below, the 6x6mm Copper pipes are spread towards the outer edges of the fin stack with half of them having a slightly more central off set.

The six heat pipes emerge elegantly from the Nickel coated Copper contact plate and while quality is reasonably good we did see some evidence of blemished and solder splatter.

£30 savings over the darkrock is worth a bit of a fiddle, you could buy a long screwdriver and a decent fan and get change from that.Quote

Looks a lot like the HR-02/HR-02 Macho.Quote

Pretty poor work on the fan mounting but given its size I'd say it'll be a good option for passive cooling.Quote

I hate those stupid rubber fan mounts. I prefer the metal spring clips to be honest. (mounting and re mounting never seems to be as easy with the rubber ones) still if it performs well its definitely a better option than the lower end aio's "imo" and at £30 its a really good price. cant see much wrong with it to be honest. personal id change to a 120mm fan probably wouldn't worry that much about the static pressure as the fins don't really look like they are that close together soid probably aim for a CFM focused fan with lower rpm, Then stick them in push pull. id imagine you could get the system acceptably cool with lower noise levels like that.Quote
