Mainly because quite a few weeks have passed since we had our last CPU Cooler review published today and for the next few days we will be testing some of the latest and best high end CPU Coolers in the market the first of which is called the Archon and is manufactured by the well-known and respected by all gamers and overclockers alike, Thermalright.
Thermalright is an elite design house that manufactures cooling products for computer components for the best quality and performance your money can buy. In 2002, AMD released its first generation Thunderbird CPU and since then we have been there every step of the way to counter high voltage and high heat with innovative design and highly acclaimed cooling solutions not only for AMD but for Intel as well. One of early well known solutions was the SK-6. With many positive and rave reviews under its belt Thermalright bolted to the top as the heat sink manufacturer mostly preferred by Overclockers and enthusiasts around the World. To this day, innovation never left our vocabulary as we keep coming up with leading edge designs staying ahead of the competition.
The Archon is in more than one way similar to the Venomous X we had on our test bench a while back. However although the overall design has many similarities the Archon is taller and wider but also happens to be quite thinner than the Venomous X CPU Cooler. This was done to allow people to use all of their memory module slots without clearance issues, something that is very easy to happen with the Venomous and other similar sized units when paired with a fan.
