Top 5 Liquid Cooling CPU Heatsinks - At A Glance
HOW IT WORKS: The #1 Rank is considered the current Top self contained liquid cooling heatsink, #10 is considered the 10th BEST. Only self-contained liquid cooling heatsinks that Frostytech has tested in its labs are included in these charts; thus we guarantee this list is incomplete, that it's not an indication of "the best heatsink ever" and that rankings will frequently change with each chart update. Please click on each heatsink for a detailed review. Manufacturers and vendors are permitted to reference the 'Top 5 Self Contained Heatsinks' chart.
