[ad#review975-top]Today we have the opportunity to review one of four CPU Coolers in the Inspiration of Silent Gaming Cooling (ISGC) line of CPU coolers from Thermaltake. The ISGC-100 as well as the other three coolers offers a unique fan design which improves airflow and decreases noise. The ISGC also offers Hydro Dynamic Bearing (H.D.B.) Technology, a Copper+ Base and Sawtooth Fin Design. How will the first of four new CPU coolers perform? Read on further to find out.
SGC Fan Technology – Slim 92mm PWM fan specially designed to reduce air turbulence and friction; providing a comfortable and silent operation environment
Hydro Dynamic Bearing (HDB) Technology – Improved fan operation stability and noise production for extended overall product durability
The Perfect Copper+ Base Architecture x 3 Heatpipes – Unique combination of copper and aluminum mixed base with 3 heatpipes for both advanced cooling performance and ultra light weight of only 335g
Individual Sawtooth Fin Design – Achieving optimized cooling performance and minimal noise production with the exclusive saw-toothed design on the fins to enhance the air ventilation within the cooler

The ISGC-100 comes packaged in a relatively small package. The front of the box shows the ISGC-100 cooler in the foreground of Zoe, The Goddess of Victory. The words Inspiration of Silent Gaming Cooling line the bottom next to a short list of features. The back of the package goes into a little more detail about the features, showing exactly where they are on the cooler.
Opening up the box reveals the small cooler inside in addition to the hardware box. Inside the hardware box is only a couple pieces of hardware and some documentation.
