Thermaltake has decided to update its well-known Big Typhoon cooler design in the light of hot CPUs coming from Intel and AMD in the following months. AMD is getting ready to launch the new FX Vishera processor like we reported here, and Intel will likely follow with an Ivy Bridge based hexa-core CPU.
The new Thermaltake cooler is called BigTyp Revo, its designated model number is CLP0602 and it comes with a relatively quiet 120-millimeter fan.
The fan is reportedly
only 25 millimeters tall, and the whole thing weighs in at 530 grams.
That’s 1.16 pounds of cooling power that will take care of CPU with a very high 160 watts TDP.
There are six 6-millimeter cooling heatpipes running through the cooler and only the mid three are likely to come in contact with the CPU die, while the others will help using by drawing additional heat from the CPU’s IHS.
There is no info on pricing yet, but we can’t help being disappointed with Thermaltake’s decision to use 6 mm heatpipes instead of 8 mm.
We believe that at least the mid three heatpipes should have sported an 8 mm diameter.
