Thermaltake TMG IA1 processor køleren har været en tur forbi APH Networks, der heller ikke har testet andre kølere på det seneste.
It's surprising how time just flies by. It feels as it was just yesterday when the new term computer science classes just started for me, and one whole semester is already close to an end. Not to mention it has been a very long time since our last heatsink review, but it barely feels that way! One of the most notable was our Noctua NH-U12P review, written by APH Networks' Editor-in-Chief Jonathan Kwan, which achieved an APH:Renewal Award for its very balanced performance and general excellence back in the days. During this interval of time, we have observed a relatively slow development in terms of technological progression in the heatsink market. The same basic heatsink design concepts still apply today. It's still about efficiency and even more so, the effectiveness of the fan on the heatsink itself. In that regard, it is absolutely critical to strike an optimal balance between noise, fan speed, and airflow for a viable product in today's extremely competitive high end personal computer air cooling market. That said, there are newer heatsinks with more radical designs such as Thermaltake's V1 or Cooler Master's V10 on the market today. The funny thing is that their names sound a lot more like an automotive engine than a heatsink, haha. Too bad we can't equip them with variable valve timing or add a turbocharger in, otherwise imagine what they can do? Jokes aside, even with such products on the market, it did not render the inherent balance of simplicity, price, and effectiveness of tower heatsinks obsolete at all. In light of that, we took on the TMG IA1 tower heatsink from Thermaltake. But how will it perform in real life? Read on to find out.
