As promised during the past 2 months we have brought to you 8 LGA1366 CPU coolers but since we feel that the list is not large enough we have secured more units in an effort to provide to you perhaps the largest i7 CPU cooler database online to make it easier for you to pick the one that fits your needs the most. If everything goes according to plan this week should be the last week that we will be focusing on CPU Air Coolers (unless other solutions arrive by the end of the week) and so next week we shall start with Water Cooling solutions for the LGA1366 socket. So far the units we have reviewed mostly follow the U and C type designs with sole exception the V10 by Cooler Master that featured a never seen before design. Still with us today we have another unit with quite an innovative design, this time by ThermalTake.
Since the beginning of Thermaltake in 1999, they have been at the forefront of creating new and exciting products at a time where most computer users were provided little to no choices for components that may seem irrelevant, but in reality crucial to the performance of a PC. Thermaltake Server Series solutions, with years of thermal experience and industry leadership, sets its goal on reforming total thermal management in server segment by formulating the perfect mixture of versatility, efficiency and thermal management with each respective server product category: Rackmount Chassis, Server Fixed & Redundant Power Supply and Server CPU Cooling Management Solutions. With its comprehensive line of products available, it enables Thermaltake's core customers to enjoy a one-stop-shop experience, reduce product design-in evaluation period and most important of all, flawless integration process. Each of Thermaltake's strengths enables its customer to focus on their core business while taking advantage of the skills and efficiency of a single thermal management solution partner.
The unit on our test bench today is the V14AX CPU Cooler by Thermaltake and at first glance it is clear that it is nothing like the usual CPU Air Coolers in the market, at least not design wise. That aside the cooler is compatible with LGA775, LGA1366, AM2, AM2+, AM3 sockets and is somewhat based on the sandwich design, meaning it features a single fan between two heatsinks. This is not the first sandwich CPU Air Cooler we have encountered but it is the first one that comes with a 140mm fan and this should help the performance of this unit.
