Introduction

The Thermaltake DuOrb CPU Cooler provides more than just CPU cooling. The dual fan design cools the entirety of the upper portion of the motherboard in addition to the CPU. The DuOrb includes double-sided radiant heatpipes disperse the heat through the extensive number of fins surround each fan. The mirror coated copper base provides even better heat dissipation between the contact surface and the CPU over other CPU coolers. Read on further for the full review.

Features

Fantastic DuOrb series Design
- Extension of DuOrb Cooler Design, after DuOrb VGA, the DuOrb architecture inspired CPU cooler with 6 different channels.
- Blue-Red LED Lights Fans, two 80mm fans come equipped with LED lights, one with blue and one with red.
- Unique Silent Fan makes at most 21 dBA at fan speed.
Magic Cooling Performance Structure
- Copper Construction, Copper Heatpipe, Fin, and Base, provides maximum heat conductivity and dissipation performance.
- 6 Distinct Designed Heatpipes* remove heat from source via the channels.
- Double-Sided Radiant Heatpipes Penetrating Fins transmit heat evenly and efficiently.
- Mirror Coating Copper Base develops perfect heat dissipating contact surface between CPU and DuOrb.
Smart Thermal Management
- Dual-Flow Design further utilizes system air flow to cool down surrounding temperatures and dissipates the heat of CPU, RAM, VRM, North Bridge, and the back of VGA card. Red-Light Orb cools RAM area and Blue-Light Orb cools CPU surrounding area.

Packaging

The Thermaltake DuOrb CPU Cooler comes packed in a standard retail box. The front of the box lists the socket types the cooler supports. The DuOrb is also protruding from the box through the plastic it's encased in to show the buyer the actual parts of the cooler. The back of the packaging gives little other description about the cooler while the sides provide a little more detail.


The cooler is protected by two pieces of plastic which clamp together in multiple places. Included in between these pieces of plastic is a small box full of parts.
