Introduction

 

Founded in 1992, GlobalWin has been a key player in cooling for quite some time now. They were close to becoming a legend when they came out with their FOP series of heatsink, and just about everyone around would recommend them for an overclocked rig. But things had become a little quiet of late. Sure, they have been improving a couple of older designs by modifying the base material and playing with different sized fans, but there just wasn't anything really new for the Enthusiast crowd...until now.

Today, we're going to take a look at the TAK68. It features not one, but two fans that run at lower speeds and are attached to an aluminum sink.
