Thermaltake Volcano 9 Review @ Overclocker Cafe

Thermaltake Volcano 9 Review @ Overclocker Cafe news post from TweakTown's online news computing and technology content pages

Overclocker Cafe pipped us at the post on this one... We were shooting for an exclusive of the new Volcano 9 cooler from Thermaltake except they managed to get their review out a couple days before us - Our review will be up before much longer!


The base of the Volcano 9 measures 10mm thick. As we noted above, in the center of the base is a circular copper insert. Copper has a higher thermal capacity than aluminum but it doesn't dissipate the heat as quickly as aluminum does. That is why you see so many performance oriented heatsinks being a mix of copper and aluminum in their construction. The copper insert was smooth and flush to our eye and finger. We placed it onto a piece of stained glass to check for any imperfections. None were found.
