Cooler Master EP5-6I11 & DP5-5G11B Review
review by terion, 10 June 2001

Introduction

Although not a very famous name in the overclocking community compared to Alpha, Global Win or Thermal Take, this company is a popular choice in the OEM market. Just go and buy a OEM Athlon or Duron and chances are you will be offered to buy a Cooler Master heat sink. Also recently there is rumour that retail Athlon and Duron are being supplied with Cooler Master heatsinks as well, instead of the Taisol HSF units.

Today we are going to look at two of their newest models, the slim DP5-5G11A and its bigger brother, EP5-6I11. These two CPU coolers are part of the 2001 Q2 models from Cooler Master.
