A couple of months ago I reviewed the OCZ Vendetta CPU cooler and today the firm released the Vendetta 2. Just like its predecessor this cooler features three heatpipes with the heatpipe direct touch (HDT) design but it's larger and fits 120mm fans instead of 92mm fans. These two improvements should boost the cooling performance and make this a pretty silent cooling solution.
Utilizing the proven performance of the latest HTD design, the Vendetta 2 has direct contact with the processor using three copper heat pipes to ensure the most rapid heat transfer and a lighter weight. The dimple micro-configuration of the stacked aluminum fins adds turbulence, reducing the skin effect of laminar air flow for more efficient circulation within your case. The versatile and user-friendly Vendetta 2 is compatible with AMD AM2/939/754/755 and Intel 775 sockets and can be installed quickly and easily by end-users at all skill levels.
The Vendetta 2 offers an extra performance boost than the more compact original version. The ultra-quiet 120mm fan, with its anti-vibration rubber connectors to reduce excess noise, sets new standards for extremely efficient cooling performance at a price point that is still enticing to a variety of budgets.
The heatsink is made out of aluminum and features copper heatpipes, it measures 120mm x 50mm x 159mm but the weight isn't listed in the specifications. The 120mm fan has an airflow level of 65 to 81CFM and a noise level of 20 to 32dBA.
