Along with the MaxOrb, ThermalTake also presents its new V1 CPU cooler at CeBIT. This cooler is entirely made out of copper and weighs 637g.
Designed for outmost thermal efficiency while minimizing the overall noise output to provide unprecedented computing environment and comfort. V1 will support all mainstream and high performance processors (Intel LGA775 and AMD Socket AM2/940/939/754).
“It’s easy to design a nice looking cooler, a silent cooler, or a high performance cooler,” said Eric Chuang, senior manager of Thermaltake thermal division. “It’s very difficult to integrate all 3 elements in one cooler, that’s why it took us 8 month to develop V1 which is a fusion of performance, silence and appearance”.
On the cooling front, V1 utilizes the newly developed 4 Channel – Dual-V Architecture Heatpipe Cooling V1, where V shaped copper fins are seamlessly attached onto 963mm of heatpipes, to accelerate heat dissipation. Mirror finished copper base further increases the heat absorption rate to effectively remove heat from processors. Over-sized 110mm fan with all-range variable speed controller allows user to manually adjust fan speed according to the working or gaming environment. Open-frame design on the fan further reduces air-rebounding noise that are found on traditional fan to achieve nearly silent operation.
Side flow design utilizes system air and allow the cool system air to flow through the cooler to provide more effective cooling. Unique architecture design provides multi-directional air intake which absorb more cool air to achieve better performance.
Streamlined body designed not only increases airflow through the copper fins, but also forms a distinctive look that will surely to catch the attention of any PC enthusiasts and overclockers.
The V1 features a 120mm fan which delivers a maximum airflow of 86.5CFM.
