Introduction

 

Thermaltake has been taking a beating lately in a lot of forums and tech sites for it's Orb line of coolers; and rightly so. The Orb coolers have been the company's mainstay for a while now, but while they may look cool, they don't perform well at all.

 

Now enter the Volcano II unit. Thermaltake decided to go with a more conventional approach to cooling with this model, so I was really looking forward to seeing what this company could really do. I like the idea of the Orbs, but if they don't work then they're useless to me. So when they decided to get back to basics, I was eager to dig right in and check out their newest model.

 

The Volcano II cooler falls into the "Budget" category. You can normally pick these units up pretty cheaply, but before you do, let's find out just how well they can handle the stress of cooling one of the hottest processors on the market...the AMD Thunderbird.
