ThermalTake

 

Browsing the ThermalTake website you notice just how far they have come from the old ORB days. This time around we aren't looking at a new case or a new cooler from ThermalTake - but a kit. ThermalTake recently released the X-Blower kit which comes with two fans and a rheobus to control them.

 

- ThermalTake X Blower

 

There are three parts to the X-Blower kit. The first is the rheobus which is used to control the speed of both the fans. The rheobus buttons are quite big but the best thing about this is that they are nice and smooth and very easy to move.

 

 

 

As we mentioned, there are two fans included within the pack. One is a thermal controlled 80mm fan. The fan moves from 1,300 RPM @ 20c pushing a maximum of 4,800 RPM @ 55c. This fan is a simple 80mm fan that you can either use to upgrade a current 80mm fan, add a new 80mm fan to a spot that supports it or upgrade a current heat sink to this new fan if your current fan just ain't cutting the cheese no more.

 

The other fan looks quite different and you may recognize it from the Cooler Master Aero 7(+) cooling unit. This particular fan is designed to eliminate any dead spot that most fans have. The Blower Fan as ThermalTake call it pushes a maximum of 26.9 CFM @ 41 DBA. Below is a picture of how ThermalTake recommend setting the package up:

 

 

If you're chasing a few new fans and a rheobus, you're in luck. The aluminum rheobus is definitely high quality and will go perfect if you're the lucky owner of a silver ThermalTake or a Lian Li case, as it will suit perfectly.
