THERMALTAKE CL-P0114 BIG TYPHOON INTRODUCTION
The PC aftermarket is so dynamic that it's often hard to keep up with new products. This is especially true with coolers in general and CPU coolers in particular. The “King-of-the-Hill” may be relegated to “Second-Best” in a matter of weeks. While the difference in performance of the two may be only a degree or two, enthusiasts have proven willing to pay the premium for this increased performance. Not surprisingly, manufacturers have proven willing to bring cooling solutions to this market at an ever increasing rate. Thermaltake is one of these suppliers, with a relatively long history of supplying the aftermarket with, among other products, high performance CPU coolers. This time, we'll be looking at their Big Typhoon heatpipe cooler that, while not new, has a loyal following among enthusiasts. Let's see how it performs.
