Today we look at the newest CPU cooler from Asus, the Lion Square. Named for the Sword Lion legend and designed with quad core CPU’s in mind this seems to be a slick heat sink. The bold and unique design features eight heat pipes that originate from the copper base all the way to the top where they are covered by neat looking nuts. The very top of the cooler has a cover that mimics the shape of a shield. It looks great, but how will it perform? Read on to find out!
The ASUS Lion Square is named after the legend of the Sword Lion, which is the emblem of strength, courage and good fortune. The unique design features 8mm diameter heat pipes that originate from the bottom of the cooler for heat conduction and adds to the shield design with the ends of the heatpipes poking through the top of the cooler cover that mimics the shape of the shield. As the legend goes a famous general once led his armies to defeat a group of strong enemies after an invasion. The shields that were equipped by the armies were carved with a lion-tattoo and the swords were placed through lion’s mouth. Later generations believe that this lion-tattoo symbolizes Strength, Courage, and Good Fortune.
