Specifications, Availability and Pricing
With the FORT 120 the cooling begins with four 8mm heatpipes, which as I said, make direct contact with the CPU's IHS. Then some of the heat is transferred through the "Stonehenge Technology", which refers to the pre-cooler on the top of the base that pulls additional heat from the base into the lowest four fins of the lower thirteen fin section. The heatpipes, however, travel all the way through the lower thirteen and the forty fin top section. These fifty-three fins are thick and have the ends bent to enclose the sides of this cooler to maximize the fans potential to remove the heat from all this surface area. Speaking of the fan, Rosewill accompanies the FORT with a 30-99 CFM fan that uses a 4-pin connector for total control of performance versus noise. Rosewill makes sure that the FORT 120 is available to use whether AMD, since socket 754, or anything Intel socket 775 and socket i7. All this potential comes in a 160mm tall and 900 gram package.
The fan paired inside the box is a 120mm by 25mm non-LED fan. This fan connects with a 4-pin, PWM connector, so users can dial in the amount of cooling and noise needed for each specific situation. This fan bases at 700 RPM and puts out 30 CFM. It seems the selected fans should have plenty of cooling potential with a maximum of 99 CFM at 2300 RPM. For the "silent cooler" users out there, the FORT 120 can go as low as 700 RPM which lowers the CFM to 30, while at its lowest setting the fan pushes out 15 dBA of noise and up to 30 dBA at full speed.
So far, going through the usual Google searches, the RCX-SHDT120X1 or FORT 120 can only be found at one place, which is no surprise. Since Rosewill is Newegg's "house brand", I really didn't expect to see this cooler for sale anywhere else. The cooler shows currently in stock and I can only assume they have plenty of stock to go around. The FORT 120 comes at an asking price of 49.99 U.S. Dollars plus shipping at Newegg. While the price isn't exactly "rock bottom pricing", for the features that the FORT 120 boasts, the price is not out of the realm of "the norm" for what it offers on paper.
