Mike D pits the ThermalTake DuOrb and MaxOrb against a ton of other heatsinks. Read on to see how they stack up.

    We are getting quite a collection of heatsink reviews now aren't we!:bigggrin:

    Good write up as always Mike, I was just wondering if the DuOrb got the Icrontic Stamp of Approval or was that just the MaxOrb?

    Thanks, Mike. I'm always keen for new reviews on heatsinks.

    Thanks guys :)

    Only the MaxOrb has received the seal of approval. Although the DuOrb is a good heatsink as far as performance and aesthetics are concerned, I simply couldn't look past the very high price and compatibility issues. Had the MaxOrb not had the fan vibration issue, it probably would have received an "outstanding product" award over the stamp of approval as well.
