NorthQ FlexQ Combo Cooler

NorthQ FlexQ Combo Cooler


There certainly isn’t a shortage of CPU coolers on the market, and they come in all shapes and sizes. The same could be said about GPU coolers, although they are not quite as numerous as CPU coolers! Today however we will have a look at a rather strange cooler from NorthQ, the FlexQ Combo cooler. What makes the FlexQ Combo unique is that it can be installed not only on most processors as a low profile cooler, but on several GFX cards as well. But given its small size, can it perform well enough to be a competitive product? We will find out in this review.
