Using our trusted T.E.C.C. testing methods, we compare Thermaltake's DuOrb to all of our previously tested CPU coolers.

The Cooler

 

 

The DuOrb is a large cooler that stands off the motherboard to clear surrounding components. The cooler also comes with a cable that is long enough to connect to any of the motherboards built in 3-pin connectors.

 

 

The outer row of cooling fins are made of copper; there is an inner row on the cooler that is made of aluminium.

 

 

Here is the inner row of aluminium fins. As you can see, they only get a single heatpipe but maximize the amount of cooling for the DuOrb.

 

 

The sides are identical; Thermaltake has used the same fins on several products and they have proven to do a good job dissipating energy into the air.

 

 

The two sides are a mirror image of each other before they are powered. Once activated, one fan glows red and the other is blue.

 

 

The base of the DuOrb is smooth to the touch yet shows some light machine marks.

 

 

Here we get a closer look at the DuOrb's six heatpipes and the way they are configured in relation to the fins.
