Thermaltake Volcano 7+ HSF Review

Many of you may be familiar with the original Volcano 7 HSF. While a good concept, the self-adjusting fan on it didn't work as well as intended. But now that a new version has hit the streets, things have changed a bit. Come join Mike "Darthtanion" Wright as he takes a look at the new Thermaltake Volcano 7+ HSF. The new design promises both cooling prowess and quiet, so let's see if it succeeds in these lofty goals.

Introduction

 

For those who have been keeping up with Thermaltake, you'll remember all the controversy about their ORB line of coolers. But here recently, they have proven themselves to be a manufacturer of high-quality sinks that cool well and look good at the same time.
