Today we have the opportunity to take a look at the AeroCool DCC-C900 CPU Cooler, a compact CPU cooler with a transparent white frame and blue fins. This CPU cooler uses three 6mm copper heatpipes in a “U” form to use the DCC or Direct Core Contact technology to cool the CPU. It supports LGA 775/AM2 and K8 CPUs, but unfortunately doesn’t support the newest CPU architectures. Installation is a breeze with this cooler, which could fit into almost any size case. Read on further to see what else it has to offer.
- Direct Core Contact technology – heatpipes are directly in contact with the CPU die

The AeroCool DCC-C900 comes in a relatively small package. The package follows the typical AeroCool color scheme: blue, red, and black. The front of the box shows in image of the cooler along with the various features. The side of the box covers the more specific details of the heatsink and the fan.
The other side of the box shows the features in seven different languages. The fan comes separated from the cooler inside the packaging by a thin piece of cardboard.
I was expecting more inside of the box, but there are only a couple of parts next to the heatsink and fan.
