Thermaltake has become a very familiar name in the PC hardware community. It seems that just about everyone has owned a Thermaltake product at one time or another. I still remember replacing the OEM heatsink on one of my old Palomino-based Athlon processors and swapping it out for a trusty Thermaltake Volcano 7. Founded in 1999, Thermaltake now has hundreds of products in their lineup. They are also one of the few PC accessory makers that has gone public—Thermaltake is traded on the Taiwan stock exchange (TSEC).
Today, we have two of their newest CPU coolers in the labs—the DuOrb and MaxOrb. You may be familiar with the very popular Thermaltake DuOrb VGA cooler that they also produce. The DuOrb CPU cooler employs the same basic shape and cooling principals, but has been reworked for CPU use. We’ll also be taking a look at the new MaxOrb—a single 120mm model.
