CeBIT 2008: Thermaltake's secret weapon

April 15, 2008 10:16:12 PM

When it came to cooling systems, Thermaltake had quite a few interesting thing to show. Air cooling wise, the manufacturer promoted 14 cm fans with two new models: the V14 Pro and the BigTyp 14 (the latter had already been seen at the CES). The first model, very wide, uses 6 heat pipes to send heat on the two copper heat sinks that aren't that thick, but that are wide. In between is the fan that is placed vertically, a la Zalman CNPS. It'll easily evacuate the casing's hot air but will provide only a small air flow to the chipset and the processor's power supply stages. On the opposite, the BigTyp 14 and its six heat pipes in U will handle this well and should have better overall performances for the processor. Both air cooling systems should be available in a month.
