Thermaltake introduces MaxOrb cooler
Press release, March 22; Eric Mah, DIGITIMES [Thursday 22 March 2007]

Thermaltake recently introduced its MaxOrb CPU cooler for the enthusiast segment.

Supporting Intel Socket LGA775 and AMD Socket AM2/939/754 series CPUs, the MaxOrb utilizes six independent channel heatpipes to dissipate heat through the radial fins of an aluminum radiator. The six cooling pipes are attached to the cooler's copper base plate which has a mirror-finish to ensure close thermal contact with the CPU. A built-in fan with a blue LED light ensures that a constant stream of air passes through the radiator fins while casting cool illuminations on the workings of this cooling system.

Thermaltake claims the MaxOrb makes only 16dBA of sound while operating at minimum speed. The also fan has an adjustable speed control to provide more performance for overclocking operations, noted the company.
