Today we have the honour to present you CoolerMaster's latest heatsink: the Jet 7 (ACB-V83).
With this HSF CoolerMaster tries to prolong the success of the Aero 7, an excellent heatsink with radial fan aimed at the PC enthousiast market.

With a more powerful radial fan, a decent heatsink and flashy looks, this new product has the potential of outperforming his older brother, the Aero 7.

Let's look at what the box has to offer us first:
