Specifications, Availability and Pricing
This single tower cooler uses Sapphire's well know Vapor Chamber at the base to draw heat from the processor. Then through a skived heat sink on the top of the base, four 7mm heat pipes pass through to deliver heat further away from the base of the Vapor-X CPU cooler. From the pipes the heat is delivered into 63 aluminum fins with partially closed sides. To rid the cooler of heat Sapphire has supplied two 120mm fans placed in shrouds that help with the aesthetics of the overall design. These combined with the blue LED backlit top portion gives the cooler a completed look that normal exposed towers lack aesthetically.
Sticking a bit more to the chart up there, the Vapor-X is 135mm wide, 104mm wide and stands 163.5mm tall, while weighing in at 924 grams. As I mentioned, you get two fans to cool this tower, the Martech DF1202512SEUN fans to be more exact. These fans can max-out at 2200 RPM delivering 77CFM of air flow and 2.6mmH2O of static pressure, each. They are based off a sleeve bearing and both fans use a 4-pin PWM connector. They even supply a Y-splitter cable for those of you without dual CPU fan headers on your motherboards. Also with the universal nature of the mounting hardware, the Vapor-X CPU cooler will fit anything since Intel's LGA775 and anything since AMD's AM2 socket right on up to all the latest sockets.
For the Vapor-X CPU cooler, prices were set back in December when I got my first sample at $80. The real shame of this matter is that even with three months now gone by since I received my first cooler, and there still aren't listings in the US market for this cooler.
While the site shows I should be able to shop for Sapphire goods at places like Newegg and AVADirect, neither site is currently listing anything, and it makes me now think that this cooler is marketed for the other side of the pond only. I guess I should consider myself lucky I even got to see this cooler.
