It seems for about the last year at least, I have been trying to get the ability to look at some coolers from Thermalright. I know getting a TRUE is pretty much out of the question, but they have released some CPU coolers I had wanted to look at. With emails going back and forth, I was made aware that Thermalright doesn't care for our testing methods on CPU coolers. Point taken and if the company doesn't agree with my methods, I can't make them change their minds now can I. so I had to back up a couple of steps and rethink my plan of attack to get my hands on something built by Thermalright, so I may be able to judge for myself if what I have been reading over the last few years holds any credence or not. So what I did was look into a different venue to get my hands on something Thermalright!
Since I was already subjecting my spare GTX 470 to some testing with the Arctic Cooling AXPII and the Zalman coolers we just recently reviewed, I figured I would take my chances with Thermalright one more time. Like I said, for years I have been reading about just how much of a difference their chipset, phase and CPU heatsinks are. Shouldn't the same thing hold true for their VGA cooling solutions? With all the talk that goes around about how well all of these coolers perform, I have felt sort of lost to even speak up once something Thermalright is brought into the equation.
While I fully realize that every product a company makes can't be summed up by looking at one product, I hope this is the first of many to come in a relationship between TweakTown and Thermalright. The product that gets the glory of being the company representative to me personally, has seen many positive reviews before this one, so my expectations are already pretty well adjusted to what I have already seen.
So why don't we settle in and have a look at Thermalright's newest submission to my desk, the Shaman VGA cooler.
