Intel Core i7 processor cooler roundup

Posted on Sunday, Oct 18 2009 @ 04:40 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
HardOCP has taken a look at a couple of processor coolers for the Intel Core i7, you can check it out over here.
Today we are going to look at some heat sinks from lesser known manufacturers; Kingwin and Thermal Transtech International Corporation. For good measure we include ZALMAN’s newt cooler the CNPS9900 LED. In the race to produce the most efficient design each sample today brings something different to the table. We have the orbital design from ZALMAN, a folded fin design from Kingwin to help cooler those hot CPU power phases, and something called a thermal column from TTIC which you have to see to believe. Which one performs best? Which one offers the quietest cooling solution? Finally, which one offers you the best value for your dollar?
