[ad#review983-top]Today we have the chance to look at the second of four Thermaltake CPU Coolers. The ISGC (Inspiration of Silent Gaming Cooling) line of CPU coolers offers a unique fan design which improves airflow and decreases noise. The ISGC-200 features 2 sawblade heatsink stacks which run three 6mm copper heatpipes. The ISGC Fan 12 is wedged in between the two stacks to pull cool air over one stack while blowing the cool air out over the other stack. Read on further to see how easy it is to install.
ISGC 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 – Copper + Aluminum base enhances cooling performance and allow ISGC200 efficiently to transfer the heat from CPU directly to the dissipation sawtooth fins.
Individual Dual Heatsink Module Design – Thermaltake designs Sawtooth onto the fins. With these sawtooth indentations, the cold air intake becomes smoother. 2 modules sawtooth fins increase more than 20% dissipative performance

The Thermaltake ISGC-200 packaging follows the same run as all the other ISGC line of CPU Coolers, minus the size. The front of the box shows the cooler with product name and Zoe, The Goddess of Victory in the background. The back of the package goes into some of the details about the fan while the sides cover the specifications of the cooler.
The cooler is protected inside of the box by a strip of foam that surrounds the outside of the cooler. The manual and installation hardware are found inside the compartment built into the box.
