Final Thoughts and Conclusion
Vigor’s Monsoon III LT definitely delivered during testing and I think it could have even handled a mild overclock on our Intel i7-920 CPU. I was also a bit surprised at how well it kept up with our Zalman CNPS9900 LED heatsink. The dual 120mm fans and dual fin arrays seemed to be a winning combination that should give other third-party heatsinks on the market a run for their money.
At around $55.99 before shipping, the price point for this heatsink is a little less than many high-end heatsinks on the market. One item to note is the overall noise created by the heatsink during operation was not overbearing and didn’t seem to raise our system’s decibel rating much during testing. We already had three 120mm fans and one 230mm fan going, so maybe that’s why we didn’t notice much of a difference when we added the Monsoon III LT to our system.
– Dual 120mm fans created excellent air flow over fin arrays
– Four copper heatpipes
– Dual aluminum fin arrays
– Copper base could have been milled smoother
