THERMALTAKE CONTAC 29 INTRODUCTION
Let's face it; AMD's top offering and Intel's top offering either dissipate heat like an over-volted, overclocked processor at stock, or is impaired by the scorching heat. This is why companies are hard at work coming up with innovative, efficient and or silent cooling methods to stop the number one problem that is, heat. Now, if this doesn't apply to people with lower end, cooler running chips remember, it's always a good idea to invest in an aftermarket cooler. Aside from possibly better cooling, you also extend the life of a processor and can possibly inherit a much more silent computing environment than a stock cooler has to offer.
So where do you start looking? Well hopefully I can narrow down your selection with the heatsink I have here today to review, the Thermaltake Contac 29 CPU Cooler. A compact, direct heatpipe touch cooler with a unique special low noise fan in a low MSRP price of $40. But, will it provide decent cooling? How bearable will the noise be? Let's find out!
