Xigmatek Announces Low-Profile Janus CPU Cooler

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 4 comments

Xigmatek is releasing a new low-profile CPU cooler with two fans.

Xigmatek has released a new CPU cooler, the Janus. According to Xigmatek, the name Janus comes from the mythological god, Janus, who is the god of beginnings, endings, time, gates, and doors, who is able to look into the future and the past.

The CPU cooler is built on a low profile, yet it still uses two fans. The cooler measures 120 x 110 x 45 mm and weighs 430 grams. Its copper base is polished, and from it stem six 6 mm heat pipes, which bring the heat to the aluminum fin array. On top of this array is a 120 mm fan, and underneath hides an 80 mm fan. The bigger fan rotates at speeds from 800 RPM to 1200 RPM, displaces 38 CFM, and produces a maximum noise level of 22.4 dBA. The smaller fan rotates up to 2000 RPM, moves 13 CFM, and makes up to 19.2 dBA of noise.

Janus works on most modern sockets including the LGA1150 socket. So far, no word has been released on its pricing or availability.

    I hope it's good; there aren't that many effective low profile CPU coolers these days.
