Using our trusted T.E.C.C. testing methods, we compare ThermoLab's Nano Silencer to all our previously tested coolers.

Final Thoughts

 

The ThermoLab Nano Silent is a very small CPU cooler that has a market with case modders and those looking for a special application cooler. Small is in; just look at the new Apple notebook and many of the new boutique systems that are small enough to be placed on a coffee table. As computers evolve, they become smaller in all markets other than giant enthusiast systems. Before long, we will see computers the size of today's Playstation and Xbox systems since mainstream users want more space.

 

Since enthusiasts are generally on the leading edge of trends we will see more and more small Shuttle style systems being made, and ThermoLab has created a product to allow that to happen.

 

Availability is a concern at this time since I was not able to find units for sale at the retail level. As stated previously, I did find units at the export/distributer level so it won't be too long before we see the coolers offered on our favorite e-tail locations. I can't imagine the cost of the cooler going over 30 or 40 US Dollars, but that is speculation at this time.

 

Performance wise, the ThermoLab Nano is a good product when used appropriately with a low wattage processor. Unlike some of the other small coolers we have tested in the past, ThermoLab didn't add Intel's Extreme line of processors to their compatible list since they are not looking to make their product out to be something it isn't.
