Sharkhan APEX4 Review

Introduction


If you haven't heard of Sharkhan, you are not alone as they are a relative newcomer in the DIY PC market, having been established in 2018. In the short time since their formation, they have expanded their product lineup to include liquid coolers, air coolers, laptop cooling pads, cases, gaming mice, thermal paste, and more. Suffice it to say they are on an upward trend and have bull-rushed the North American market, seeking to gain a solid foothold from which to expand. It will be quite interesting to see what they come out with next.


In today's review, I look at the Sharkhan APEX4. This single-tower, single-fan heatsink design with four heat pipes looks fairly similar to many other entries in the entry-level to mid-range market, meaning it will face some stiff competition. However, unlike some of its competition, it does offer RGB lighting built into the top-plate and the fan. In general, it will be quite interesting to see if there is more here than just fancy lights and good looks, so let's take a closer look and see just what the APEX4 has to offer!
