|Thermaltake DuOrb Heatpipe CPU Cooler
Overclocking seems to becoming more popular with each new motherboard chipset release. Manufacturers are now paying extra attention to including BIOS tweaks that allow users to optimize the performance of their processor, memory, and overall system performance.
With all of the knowledge on the Internet about overclocking, almost anyone with some time to read up on the subject can squeeze some more performance from their system. But any enthusiast would not be caught dead trying to do so with the stock cooler included with their processor. The stock AMD/Intel coolers do a decent job, but when adding more speed and voltage to the processor, the temperatures can go into the red. This is where a company like Thermaltake comes in; providing a variety of aftermarket cooling options to suit just about anyone's needs.
This review will be taking a look at one of Thermaltake's innovative new CPU coolers, the DuOrb. As the name suggests, and as the promotional image above reveals, there are two orb-shaped components to this cooler, each with its own fan.
Before taking a look at the unit provided for review, let's look at some of the key features and specifications for the DuOrb as taken from the product page on the Thermaltake website.
