APH Networks har her kigget den nye Thermaltake Silent 1156 processor køler efter i kanterne.
As computers get more and more powerful with each advance in computing technology, it is inevitable that the thermal envelope is continually being pushed to higher levels. For this reason, there will always be a large market for aftermarket CPU cooling. But just when you think only the biggest and loudest coolers can effectively cool the latest and greatest overclocked quad core processors, Thermaltake comes in with the Silent 1156 heatsink (Yes, that's literally the name). As its name suggests, this cooler is designed for Intel's relatively recent LGA1156 socket, and is a claimed to be silent alternative to the stock cooler provided by Intel in a retail packaged CPU. This tower style cooler features two 8mm heatpipes leading away from the base, as well as an included 92mm cooling fan over its array of heatsink fins. It is priced at a mere $29.99 at press time, and targeted at users who are into silent computing -- those who are dissatisfied with the noise generated from the little Intel heatsink -- but do not wish to spend a lot of money for an aftermarket unit. Generally speaking, Thermaltake aims to provide the user with the Silent 1156 as an alternative low noise CPU cooling solution without breaking the bank. We will be testing this product today to see if it is really a viable alternative and holds its own against the competition, and whether it can handle the our Intel Core i7-860 within a reasonable range of temperatures. Are you better off saving your money and sticking with the stock cooler, or should you grab this heatsink as soon as you finish this reading this review? Well... continue reading to find out!
