Can't Touch This! A Comparison of 46 CPU Coolers

TRIG T40-6EA: Powerful Fence-Straddler

Trig T40-6EA.

The TRIG cooler's roomy design stands out immediately. It is made up of a solid aluminum heat sink and a large fan. The polished CPU contact surface is a positive feature. This giant's cooling performance of 41 degrees is impressive, although, because of its mammoth measurements, it can't be mounted on all boards. Its operating noise level is a conspicuously loud 60dB (A), which should bring your local safety representative onto the scene. During the last test, we criticized the clamps for being much too stiff. The manufacturer has responded to our criticism, and the new model can be installed much more easily.
