AKASA Blue Aurora CPU Cooler
Article Publish Date:
For the past couple of months i have laid my hands on some of the best CPU coolers ever made by either gigantic companies or by rather small ones. However there are always companies out there that i have yet to review their products and i am always looking forward in putting them to the test. And so today i will be doing a review about a CPU cooling solution made by a company that sits right in between of the bunch, meaning it is neither gigantic nor small.
The Akasa brand was launched back in the year 2000 when the Overclocking and Case modding trend started to appear and since day one they offered good quality solutions with a reasonable price and intelligent technical support. The name comes from a Sanskrit word meaning atmosphere, space and the ether which is quite fit for a company that makes air cooling solutions. Akasa used a leading UK based design company to make their solutions more western like and it didn't take long for their blue and yellow style to be recognized by gamers and enthusiasts. Their cool it with color slogan was first introduced in 2002 and was inextricably linked to Akasa products. In June 2006 Akasa performed a restructuring of the entire company in an effort to meet the increasing demand for technology products from mainstream computer markets.
The unit reviewed today is the Akasa 966 Blue Aurora, a medium priced CPU Cooler that is ment to be the successor of their old award winning Akasa 965 CPU Cooler. The design team behind the Blue Aurora is rumored to list many members in it that were previously employees of Arctic Cooling which needless to say left in order to join up with Akasa. Whether that is something that really made a difference will be soon seen based on the test results.
