OCZ Vendetta CPU cooler - based on Xigmatek design

Posted on Thursday, September 13 2007 @ 16:00:43 CEST by

OCZ quietly launched a new high-performance processor cooler, the Vendetta. According to the firm's website the new OCZ Vendetta cooler is based on a design by Xigmatek and by looking at the photos you can see that this cooler indeed looks a lot like the Xigmatek HDT-S1283.

The Vendetta features a copper base, three copper heatpipes and aluminum fans and one of the special things about this design is that the heatpipes make direct contact with your processor:
While traditional heat pipe CPU coolers typically use a solid base plate design, the Vendetta’s three copper heat pipes make direct contact with the processor allowing for maximum heat transfer at a more rapid pace. A novel “dimple” design in the micro-configuration of the stacked aluminum fans adds turbulences, thereby reducing the skin effect of laminar air flow. Moreover, a folded "V" shape of the macro-configuration of the fins adds surface area without compromising the compact design. As a result, the Vendetta offers incredibly efficient cooling area comparable to much larger coolers which is reflected in its performance.
The OCZ Vendetta features a temperature-controlled fan which goes from 1200 to 2800RPM. At 1200RPM it blows 39CFM at a noise level of 22dBA and at 2800RPM it moves 54.6CFM but gets quite noise with 34dBA.

The heatsink is compatible with Intel's LGA775 and AMD's Socket AM2/754/755/939 processors.
