“The Aesthetics of heat dispersion.” That’s the official EVERCOOL’s motto I have found on the product data sheet. We have earlier reviewed several Evercool CPU coolers and we have even reviewed the exact model Transformer 4 which we  talk about today. Let’s call it a survey round two! This time it will be tested with modern Intel LGA 1156 socket i3 CPU. In 2009 we made a  review on the Intel LGA 775 Core 2 Quad Q6600 CPU which has a 65 nm lithography and max TDP of 105 W. Let’s find out how it cools the modern Intel i3-540 Clarkdale cpu with 32 nm Lithography and max TDP of only 73 W.

The cooler is packaged into a colorful and bold plastic blister pack. It is easy to see the shiny stunning product inside. I noticed an interesting slogan at the front of the package which says: “Free collection makes much colder and quieter.” I wonder what one should think after reading that? There are specifications and features on all sides of the package. Soon we will cut open the package to reveal the inside.
The package includes the EVERCOOL Transformer 4 cooler with two 120mm fans pre-installed in a ‘push-pull’ setup, two CPU clips, back plates for AMD and Intel, installation guide, syringe of Evercool thermal compound, screws and washers for installation. No Warranty card included but that’s probably because the product was shipped for testing purposes only.
