Cooling/CPU Cooling by piotke @ 2008-10-14

Intel will launch their new Core i7 CPU series in the very near future. It will have quite an impact as it will have an integrated memory controller, DDR3 only support, and a new Socket. Just as Socket 775 it will be a LGA based socket, with the pins on the motherboard. Only this time it will have 1366 pins and modified dimensions for coolers. Let\'s take a closer look at one of the first third party coolers, aimed at the very high end.
