V1 CPU Cooler
Posted by: Sierra Monica B. in Gadgets
Can you guess what this is? Some of you might need some help. It is the coolest CPU cooler of these days, and it has received the Red Dot Award in the Product Design 2008 category.
This amazing cooler is called V1 and comes from Thermaltake Technology, a company from Taipei, Taiwan, specialized in thermal management solutions, and considered to be one of the best brands when it comes to choosing a cooling system for intensive gaming, compatible with all processor types, from Intel Socket LGA775 and AMD Sockets AM2, to AM2+ and K8.
Sporting a double fan form and an impressive rich color, the Thermaltake CPU cooler features aluminum-copper mounting bracket and solid copper stepped fins.
Thermaltake has chosen this form factor to create a unique cooler capable to absorb and dissipate heat very quickly, but also to minimize noise by freeing the air without hitting any parts of the frame.
A high heat flux density is produced thanks to the 4-channel dual-V architecture with heat pipes, a new architecture based on the evaporation and condensation heat properties of a substance. Fins in the shape of V are attached to heat pipes, each 963 mm long, accelerating the heat dissipation, while the copper base with the shiny finish increases the heat absorption rate from the CPU via the heat pipes to the fins. In addition the fan measuring 100 mm features variable speed control, permitting the user to adjust the fan speed manually.
V1 CPU cooler measures 147 x 92 x 143 mm at 637 grams, with a fan dimension of 120 x 25 mm, 12V rated current, 7V started voltage, 3W power input, 1300~2000 rpm fan speed, 86.5CFM maximum air flow, 2.22mmH2O maximum air pressure, 16dBA~24dBA noise, 50,000 life expectation, and a 3-pin connector.
You can find the Thermaltake CPU cooler model at a price of around $60.
