When you hear the name Thermaltake, you generally think cooling. Whether it comes in the form of processor cooling, chipset cooling, case cooling...just about everything Thermaltake has something to do with cooling.

Also one of the first things that come to mind is the product name of Volcano. This particular product line has been out for several years and has gone through numerous facelifts and improvements. So is it any surprise that they have finally come up with a new revision to this popular label?

Today we'll be looking at the Volcano 11. The new revision has gone though some improvements over the mediocre performance of the Volcano 9, so we'll need to see if it has what it takes to earn a spot in our performance rig. After all, cooling is the name of the game, so lets crack into the newest sink to wear the Volcano name and see if it has the right stuff.
