When you hear the brand name "Gigabyte", odds are good the first thing that comes to mind is motherboards. While the company certainly makes a lot of these, they have also expanded their product line to include graphics cards, mobile phones, laptops, p...
Bottom line When the dust settles and all the tests are completed, we find ourselves looking at a very workable cooling solution. Ambient temperatures were on par with all previous testing and the smaller temperature differential speaks very well for the Gigabyte...
Do you still remember the Rocket 3D cooler ? That is the cooler I am using right now in my Conroe system. The 3D Rocket was my preferred heatsink as it was quiet and has nice Blue LEDs. Most importantly, it fits all socket types (except AM2). 3D Roc...
Good Support all platforms, Super low noise, UV Rings...
Bad Big Size...
Bottom line From the results, we can see that the Gigabyte 3D Rocket II GH-PCU23-VE is definitely a very low noise yet high performance heatsink/fan that works on all platforms. With its duct design inherited from Rocket I, it also helps to cool down the MOSFETs...
Let nobody say that Gigabyte didn’t break the mold with its 3D Rocket II heatsink/fan combination. As the name alludes, the device resembles a rocket ship sitting atop a launch pad. It’s about as well strapped in, too; we applaud the 3D Rocket II for i...
Good Comes with decorative UVreactive fluorescent rings and a fan speed controller.
Bad Pushes on the CPU a bit too much; design makes for a tricky installation.
When you hear the name Gigabyte you think motherboards, or at least I do. Actually Gigabyte makes a lot of different products ranging from video cards to laptops. Today we will be looking at one of their CPU cooling offerings, the 3D Rocket II. The 3D...
Good Very easy installation, Fan controller included, Fan duct system, Bright LEDs...
Bad Poor thermal performance, Quite loud when fan is turned all the way up.
Bottom line I was really expecting this cooler to perform better. The temperatures are acceptable, but I would not consider this a performance CPU cooler, so if you are looking for a CPU cooler for hardcore gaming or overclocking this one is not it. On the low sp...
The Thermaltake MaxOrb did extremely well in our , and we've now got through some fourteen heatsinks with yet more to come. Gigabyte may be well known for motherboards and then graphics cards and cases, but as a provider I can’t say I’ve ever heard...
Bottom line Depending on your tolerance it may look a bit gimmicky, especially the "fluorescent bands" and copious use of blue plastic and LEDs, but it does include a variable fan controller none the less. That may not be a novel addition but it's extremely useful...
The Gigabyte 3D Rocket II GH-PCU23-VE heatsink FrostyTech is testing in this review can cool quietly when needed, and also ramps up for major heat loads.
We have recently tested a new CPU cooler from Thermaltake aka MaxOrb. Before this cooler came into the world, Thermaltake was quiet for almost three years having released nothing very exciting in this product family. Gigabyte Company seems to have done...
Good Simple and reliable installation, Universal design (supports all contemporary platforms), Good cooling of the aroundthesocket area, Low noise at minimal fan rotation speed, Highquality thermal grease, Bundled with fan rotation speed regulator, Impressive...
Bad Insufficient cooling efficiency for the solution of this price range, Requires vent holes or a fan in the side panel of the system case, High noise at maximum fan rotation speed.
Bottom line The results of our test session indicate that Gigabyte didn’t manage to create a winner to beat the current cooling efficiency leader. But this solution will still find its customer, no doubt about that. Stylish looks, universal design, relatively s...
CPU coolers come and CPU coolers go, but only a select few really leave an impression on us. The GIGABYTE 3D Rocket II is one of those big impression makers. The Dual Rocket Airflow Design Fan Duct provides better performance and a silent enviro...
Bottom line The falls into that unique category, but unique doesnt always make a product perform well. During my first batch of tests, the idle temp for my CPU was 33C with the fan at both the normal speed and OC speed settings. The results were the same wh...
Today we take a look at Gigabyte’s latest HSF solution- the 3D Rocket II. Featuring a unique design, the 3D Rocket II works with any of the recent Intel or AMD CPU based motherboards. Features:• Universal Design for Intel P4 LGA775 / mPGA478 &...
Bottom line Gigabyte has designed an excellent heatsink with the 3D rocket II that can compete head-on with other high-end solutions. We like the four heatpipes attached to the perfect machined lapped copper base and the fins to cool it down depending on the fan s...
Gigabyte, long associated with quality motherboards has expanded their line up over the past couple of years to include coolers, cases, water cooling kits, video cards and lots of other accessories. One of their newer coolers, the 3D Rocket II Coo...
Good Near universal application fits socket LGA775, AMD K8 or AM2, Excellent cooling, 3.5" bay or Expansion slot mounted rheostat, Quiet operation when set to low, Lots of eye pleasing appeal, Removable top section allows for mounting in narrower cases, Instal...
Bad A bit loud with the fan speed set to high, A tad on the pricey side...
Bottom line The Gigabyte 3D Rocket II Cooler offers a range of performance based on the users needs, be that silent operation or raw performance. The included rheostats allow easy and quick adjustment to any point in between. Its nice to see that Gigabyte is...

Bottom line It seems to me that Gigabyte has a very good air cooler. It is easy to mount and unmount once you have a retention ring attached to the motherboard ( you only need to use the one included if you have an LGA775). It is compatible with AMD64 including...
