Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Shagon' sends us a cooler that again utilizes direct contact with the processor of choice. These flattened pipes are milled to allow for better heat transfer into the six, 6mm copper hat pipes. They make very gentle bends once they go past the aluminum top plate that has holes for the mounting hardware. Once the curves begin, the pipes are no longer flattened, but return to the typical round shape for the bends and to make placing the fins over them a little easier. The forty-two fins then get slid over the six pipes to allow the transfer of the heat to the fins. These aluminum fins are stamped with louvers in the center of the fins between the heat pipes arrangement. This should allow for more disturbance and turbulence for the air flow to allow for better removal of the hat from said fins. Over the top and down the front of the cooler is a maroon colored cover that allows the rubber fan mounts a place to attach, giving the fan the isolation and spacing it needs to do a good job silently.
Of course, we need a fan to cool the AHC-118. This time around Shagon' used a 120mm fan with seven maroon blades in a flat black frame. This 25mm thick fan spins on a sleeve bearing and can rotate at 1000 to 1800 revolutions per minute. That seems like a pretty fast fan to be quiet, but Shagon' lists the fan at a 32 dBA rating which is pretty quiet and we will see about that soon enough. The fan receives its power via a 4-pin PWM connection, and when drawing 12V of power it is capable of delivering 59.27 CFM of air flow. The fan seems more than capable from what I have seen in other coolers in the past, so let's get to the availability and pricing and see if there are any shocks to be had there.
Since this is an early sample, at the time of me typing this there is no availability. When I asked directly I was told that the "AHC-118 will be expected to launch in the market about in August". That isn't very concrete for an answer, but things can and do happen that could slow production or make the company change their mind all together, and change things up, which takes time. I am pleased to say that they hit the magic number for pricing with their $49.99 MSRP. Since that seems to be where most buyers stop spending, let's see if the AHC-118 demands your $50 more than the next cooler.
