Thermaltake Volcano 7+ HSF Review

Many of you may be familiar with the original Volcano 7 HSF. While a good concept, the self-adjusting fan on it didn't work as well as intended. But now that a new version has hit the streets, things have changed a bit. Come join Mike "Darthtanion" Wright as he takes a look at the new Thermaltake Volcano 7+ HSF. The new design promises both cooling prowess and quiet, so let's see if it succeeds in these lofty goals.

TweakTown Rating: 9.5%Manufacturer: Thermaltake




For those who have been keeping up with Thermaltake, you'll remember all the controversy about their ORB line of coolers. But here recently, they have proven themselves to be a manufacturer of high-quality sinks that cool well and look good at the same time.


One of their most recent hits was the Volcano 7 HSF. When we reviewed it, it showed to be a very cool looking unit that had a speed control built in to it. While this was a good idea to help keep the noise down, it didn't work out well with cases that have an abundance of airflow.


Enter the Volcano 7+. It has grown a little more distinguished since it's inception, and our goal is to see whether the new design is viable in a Power User's system.


So let's kick this thing into gear and see what we have here…
