CPUs come ready with great coolers, but if you are anywhere serious about hitting-up more power : spend a bit more on some impressive second-party with larger fans, using innovative systems . in this arena South Korea’s own start-up Zalman formed early 1999 has come to be THE cooler, initially starting with CPU but now expanding into power and case with always /cooling/ as their strong-point . they are located on the South-Western out-skirts of SEOUL, in Korea’s silicon valley Gasan Digital complex – accessible via Seoul Subway Line 1 from YongSan, where they have a product support center AND Line 7 from Banpo .
but they cost quite a bit, some to a point you begin to wonder if you are going spend this much for cooling .. perhaps wiser to buy a more expensive product one level-up . so another Korean start-up ThermoLab formed 2003 specializing in coolers only, with lower price keep the hearts of mild over-clockers . they are located in AnSan, another satellite city further South-West of the Capital, accessible via Seoul Subway Line 4 linking YongSan with Southern inCheon .
