Coolermaster GeminII S524 CPU Cooler Review


There has been an increased influx in top-flow coolers recently because of their lower profile and cooling of the motherboard and RAM along with the CPU.  Coolermaster's latest version of their GeminII cooler has added clearance for high performance RAM sticks, and comes with an "S-blade," 120mm fan. 



GeminII S524 features a larger Heat sink for improved cooling performance, and increased memory module clearance to support high end memory modules featuring large Heat sinks of their own. It comes equipped with a modular 120mm fan with an ideal noise performance ratio throughout its supported range of rpm. It can be upgraded to a 140mm fan to further boost its cooling performance or opt for a super low noise, low rpm fan.



  • Balance cooling between CPU and components on the motherboard.
  • Higher ground clearance for better memory module compatibility.
  • Larger heatsink for better performance.
  • 12cm PWM fan provides versatile performance for full loading efficiency and for quiet idling.
  • Compatible with 14cm fans (optional).
