Default Thermaltake Silent 1156 CPU Heatsink

As computers get more and more powerful with each advance in
computing technology, it is inevitable that the thermal envelope is
continually being pushed to higher levels. For this reason, there will always
be a large market for aftermarket CPU cooling. But just when you think only
the biggest and loudest coolers can effectively cool the latest and greatest
overclocked quad core processors, Thermaltake comes in with the Silent 1156
heatsink (Yes, that's literally the name). As its name suggests, this cooler
is designed for Intel's relatively recent LGA1156 socket, and is a claimed to
be silent alternative to the stock cooler provided by Intel in a retail
packaged CPU. This tower style cooler features two 8mm heatpipes leading away
from the base, as well as an included 92mm cooling fan over its array of
heatsink fins. It is priced at a mere $29.99 at press time, and targeted at
users who are into silent computing -- those who are dissatisfied with the
noise generated from the little Intel heatsink -- but do not wish to spend a
lot of money for an aftermarket unit. Generally speaking, Thermaltake aims to
provide the user with the Silent 1156 as an alternative low noise CPU cooling
solution without breaking the bank. We will be testing this product today to
see if it is really a viable alternative and holds its own against the
competition, and whether it can handle the our Intel Core i7-860 within a
reasonable range of temperatures. Are you better off saving your money and
sticking with the stock cooler, or should you grab this heatsink as soon as
you finish this reading this review? Well... continue reading to find out!
