ThermalTake V1-Ultra CPU Heatsink

thermaltake-v1

Thermaltake's Flagship Sink

The Humble Heatsink isn’t so humble anymore.  There used to be a time when a heatsink was a bare chunk of aluminum, without any fans, anodized coating, lapped surfaces, or anything resembling the metal beasts in today’s world.

The heatsink knows it’s the most important part of your computer system, so manufacturers cater to this prima dona by adorning it  with flashy mirrored copper and flashy aerodynamic designs.  Not only do they just look impressive in a windowed case, but they have excellent performance, and manufacturers try to best each other with fancy physics tricks.

Thermaltake knows heatsinks… whether you think their previous products are great or passé.  Their decades of experience have boiled down to their latest flagship model, the ThermalTake V1 (not to be confused with Thermalright’s V1 VGA heatsink), which is not only massive, but employs every modern heatsink trick in the book.  You’ll find heatpipes, mirrored bases, adjustable fans, efficient aerodynamic designs, and all-copper materials… and it looks like its technology was taken from Area 51.
