Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The ISGC-300 uses a copper base with an aluminum top plate to remove the initial heat from the IHS. The heat is then carried away by four, 6mm diameter, copper heatpipes that pass through the 33, sawtooth, aluminum fins awaiting a push from the fan. The heatpipes are then capped with black tips where they protrude the top fin of the cooler. Thermaltake chose to compliment this with the ISGC Fan 12. This is a 120mm, 58.3 maximum CFM, fan that spins at a maximum of 1300 RPM. This is a nine bladed, flower shaped fan with a fin design that reduces another 3% of the fan noise, maximizing at 16 dBA. This fan has variable speed control built in with an inline dial, which I will show later, so it is simply powered with a 3-pin fan header. Overall weight isn't really an issue with the ISGC-300 coming to the scale at 697g.
Availability at this point in time is nil. Thermaltake is still aligning all the appropriate ducks lined up in a row, before it hits retail shelves. Through discussions with Thermaltake I was informed to expect the ISGC-300 to hit store and e-tailers shelves at the end of April to the beginning of May. This isn't too far off, so if this cooler is the way you want to spend your dollar, don't worry, it will make it to retail real soon.
With no availability at this time I cannot provide the handy links to e-tailers shelves as I usually do. I was able, however, to find out that the projected MSRP on shelves will be in the order of $43 U.S. Dollars. Unless Newegg gives them some sort of promotional shipping deal, expect to incorporate an additional $7-10 for basic shipping. Even with shipping included this does leave the ISGC right around that $50 mark of a lot of coolers. It seems to me to be a reasonable asking price, but let's open it up and let the testing decide how much bang for the buck we get with the ISGC-300.
