PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES





With support for all modern sockets, the Baram CPU cooler is rated at up to 250 watts of cooling power. (Our sample doesn't mention, or include 1366 brackets, but all retail Barams will include 1366 support by the time you read this review.) This is a big cooler with a copper base and heatpipes and aluminum fins. At almost 1.4 pounds, it's also heavy, but the included mounting system is more than up to the task, as we'll see a bit later.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PRODUCT COMPOSITION



The retail box is sturdy, but quite plain with only the company logo and printed text emblazoned on the brown cardboard.



Inside the box, we find the cooler and the mounting solutions. ThermoLab also includes a syringe with a generous amount of their thermal compound. An informative instruction booklet is also included. (Let me reiterate, our sample doesn't include 1366 brackets, but all retail Barams will include 1366 support by the time you read this review.)


You'll notice that, while there are four fan clips included (allowing the user to mount two 120mm fans on the Baram,) there are no fans in the box. You can look at this a couple of different ways. On the one hand, users get to choose the best fan(s) for their particular application. On the other, users have to spend more money for additional fans to get the Baram to operate properly. Thermalright has been operating with this business model for years without much ill will from their customers, so who's to say. At any rate, let's move on.
