Antazone is a newcomer in the computer cooling market but has produced some nice looking coolers for chipsets, graphics cards, hard drives, and finally processors. Very little information could be found regarding Antazone, but they had this to say on their website: "A group of innovators full of scientific and technological art of enthusiasm. Creating the latest products to cool your Computer stuffs!"
We are going to take a look at Antazone’s one and only CPU cooler, the AS-C1000. The AS-C1000 is a giant turbine shaped cooler made entirely of bright, shiny copper. The following features and specifications are taken from the Antazone website.

Before I actually received the AS-C1000 in the mail, I perused the pictures and specifications and had a general idea of the size and style of the unique turbine design. When the box came I was more than a little surprised. The box itself was large, colorful and very well built. One side of the box shows thermal images and another shows CAD drawings of installation. I could tell this box was designed to protect a large, heavy heatsink.
