Thermaltake Blue Orb II CPU Cooler
December 28, 2005

Just like most SUVs, CPU coolers seem to be getting larger. Also like most SUVs, there is a controversy concerning this larger than adequate size. Thermaltake, a well known manufacturer of SUVs, I mean coolers, has come up with a new design that is possibly the largest heatsink I have seen to date.

This creation is the called the Blue Orb II, named after its blue color and orb like design. Today we are here to see how this enormous rendition of a heatsink stacks up to some of the others in its class.

The Thermaltake Blue Orb II arrived in a clamshell style package. It does a great job of showing off the giant blue heatsink enclosed within, and the back of the package shows off the specifications of the product.

I've got to be honest, the first thing I really noticed about this heatsink was how much it weighed; 869 grams to be exact. That comes out to about 1.9 lbs and puts this unit in the race for the heaviest heatsink ever.
