2x Thermaltake Smart & Silent Volcano 9 HSF Reviews

| Posted: Aug 8, 2002 4:46 pm

Some of you maybe interested in A1 Electronics' latest heatsink review of the Thermaltake Volcano 9 Smart & Silent heatsink.

Thermaltake Volcano 9. Another good job done by Thermaltake with the Volcano 9 Smart & Silent AMD Athlon XP, Duron heatsink. We are awarding this one of our Gold Medals for its overall performance and temperature control system.

3dXtreme also does their experiments on it.

The initial impression of the Volcano 9 reminds us of the heatsink that was used for the Volcano 7. In fact after closer observation the only difference is the color. However this time around the cooler is sporting an updated 3 lug clip and an orange 80mm fan with a few leads coming off it. This cooler doesn't have the 100% copper, thin fin design of the Volcano 7+ thus pushing the technology of the heatsink itself back to the era of the Volcano 7. This new fan, dubbed Smart Fan II, is where the performance of the Volcano 9 originates.
