In term of "CPU Cooling", there are three choices in the market. Air Cooling; Heatpipe Cooling and Liquid Cooling. Liquid cooling is not mature enough to be widely adopted, including safety and pricing considerations. So, we focus on the other two choices.

In HTPC world, size does matter. So, our cooler must be living in a compact environment, but performing. We develop two top of the line HTPC Coolers base on the following aspects:

 

ICECONE

  • Air Cooling Design & Material: Copper is the #1 material choice in air cooling. Period. So, we used entirely pure copper heatsink on the ICECONE. What differentiates the ICECONE from the competitors is the shape. We know the heatsink bottom base gets all the heat from the CPU, so, we increased the bottom size significantly, that means the heat will be consumed by the heatsink more efficiently. At the mean time, we lowered the heatsink height, so that the heat will be blown out faster by the CPU fan.

  • Air Cooling Fan: The bottleneck is the noise. If we use 120mm fan for the silent, users may have the interference issue in most of the HTPC cases. If we used 80mm or smaller size fan, the performance will be an issue, and the noise due to the high speed spinning fan is completely unacceptable for HTPC users. So, we, again, went beyond the boundary, developed our own 100mm silent fan to achieve the balance of the silencing and strong performance.

  • Tooless Installation: We want our customers have no hassle to upgrade their coolers. We developed the easy clip design. No need to totally un-install your entire system to change the motherboard bracket and un-wiring all your cables. Simply use our intelligently designed universal bracket, push it in, and clip on the heatsink. You are able to do it in 5 minutes to upgrade your existing generic noise maker to this efficient and silent cooler.

LGA775 AMD K8 & AM2 478

 

To conclude our winning Air Cooling Formula:

Pure Copper Heatsink + Bigger bottom size + Lower height +  Big & silent Fan
