Thermaltake has been around for quite some time now and we have come to expect good things from their product line. The Volcano 12 follows in the footsteps of this lineup with great success. It manages to not only keep up with its peers, but surpass them as well.
With a choice of fan speed control and a much more aggressive fan profile, it manages the task of cooling the processor with ease. It also has the ability to allow the user to handle the job of noise output so it can be used in a variety of systems and conform accordingly.
Price-wise, you'll be looking at approximately US$39, so it isn't outrageously priced. While not the cheapest cooler in town, it gives you very good performance for the price.
I still prefer to have some sort of fan grill in place, but with the capabilities shown today in this new behemoth, this is a small concern.
Bottom line...If you haven't had the notion of taking up alternative cooling, then you will do very well with the Volcano 12. It offers excellent cooling and numerous options for noise levels at a price that is reasonable.
Aggressive fan design
Numerous fan speed options
Plenty of mass and surface area on heatsink
No fan grill
