Thermaltake DuOrb CPU Cooler
In conclusion of this section we publish comparative charts of temperature readings and thermal resistance for nominal/reference configurations of today's contenders (maximum fan speed), a chart with temperature readings of near-socket inductive elements (low-noise domain), as well as efficiency-noise ratings (low-noise and ergonomic domains).
Chart 7. Temperature readings (CPU core temperature, nominal/reference modes)
Chart 8. Thermal resistance (nominal/reference modes)
Chart 9. Temperature readings (temperature of near-socket components)
Chart 10. Efficiency/noise ratio
DuOrb CPU is undoubtedly a High-End cooler. It outperforms a lot of other promising rivals, despite its compact non-standard design, and competes successfully with such major players as Cooler Master Hyper 212, Scythe Mugen, and Zalman CNPS9700 NT. It has some flaws, of course. But they mostly have to do with usability. So they actually do not lessen the chief advantage of DuOrb CPU -- good design for compact systems (mini cases, HTPC), where the cooler can reveal its true potential, providing comfortable cooling even for top quad-core processors (Intel LGA775 and AMD Socket AM2) with decent balance of thermal efficiency and noise ergonomics. DuOrb CPU may find its users even among modders, and those people who just love original devices -- this combination of functionality and design is unique in many ways, and is hard to find.
So, Thermaltake DuOrb CPU cooler gets our Original Design award for original engineering solutions used in its heatsink.
We wish Thermaltake new achievements in designing and perfecting its High-End coolers. And we shall keep tabs on the situation in the high-end cooler segment.
