Thermaltake Jing CPU Cooler Preview (Page 2)

Manufacturer: Thermaltake

Specifications, Availability and Pricing


The Jing is based on a tower style concept that uses forty one aluminum fins. These fins are pressed onto five, nickel plated, 6mm diameter heat pipes. The heat pipes are held in place with an aluminum top half and a copper bottom half. The copper base is also nickel plated to help fight oxidation and aesthetically the nickel looks better with green than does the orange-ish color of exposed copper. On each side of this tower cooler you will find two fans housed in unusually designed cages. Then over the center of the top, there is a matching green clip to cover the top of the Jing.

The fans are unique and very new to Thermaltake. They have designed the fans with seven, highly curved, green blades to produce very little noise at their maximum 1300 RPM. If you look a bit below the middle of the specs chart, you will see that there are two sets of numbers for the fans air flow and pressure. This is because not only are the fans designed to be quiet, they are tuned to work in better sync acoustically and in aiding the performance of the cooler. The front or push fan is represented in the left set of figures and the rear, or pull fan is the lower of the values.

Availability of this cooler is expected very soon, but currently I am still waiting to hear a definite launch date. If the cooler I received is any indication, I would say mine was 90-95% ready for retail. I mean, I was short the manual and maybe a slight change that may or may not happen before retail release. What you will see here is expected to be the retail product, but anything can happen. Pricing is just a relative number as well. If you have seen the news video we hosted, Ransom says the cooler is going to have a MSRP of around $50. I would imagine with a name like Jing, the cooler has to be quiet, but can it perform? If it can handle itself in a competitive fashion, I would have to think Thermaltake will have quite the cooler at a very reasonable price. Now, let's have a look at the Jing and get to those numbers and see what Thermaltake's silent cooler can do.

After a year of gaming, Chad caught the OC bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and Chad has had many air and water setups. With a few years of abusing computer parts, he decided to take his chances and try to get a review job. As an avid overclocker, Chad is always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals.
