The Thermaltake MaxOrb does a good job carrying on the Orb name and design philosophy. As with the other Orb products I have used before, this level of performance does carry an audible penalty. While it is possible for an end user to adjust the fan speed to reduce the fan noise, the cooling capacity will also be reduced.
Product availability is one of Thermaltake's strong suits. In the U.S. just about every computer shop I have entered carries their brands, and even Radio Shack is now carrying Thermaltake parts now. A quick scan on Pricegrabber shows the MaxOrb being offered for a little over $50 USD after shipping.
All things considered, the MaxOrb is a well designed cooler with solid construction but the price is a turn off. For a almost $10 USD less the Rosewill Z5 is a better buy with both thermal and SPL performance that is comparable to the MaxOrb.
