Blizzard Thunderbird: Shooting Star
Blizzard Thunderbird with a heat sink made of solid copper.
The Blizzard Thunderbird's test caused quite a stir. Of the 25 new coolers we tested, this one had the best cooling performance. In the overall placement, it placed third among a total of 46 coolers tested. A very good performance! A goodly chunk of the high cooling performance can be attributed to the heat sink of pure copper, which, however, also makes for a high overall weight. Other peculiarities: the fan rotates at an unusually high 4900 RPM. The soft CPU clamps make installation child's play.
