Thermalright Venomous-X review -
Okay, so here we have packaging and bundle. The cooler does not come preinstalled for you, meaning the fans aren't in place and locked in. We need to apply fan retention clips and rubber pads.
Surprisingly enough, you pay for the cooler and need to purchase the actual fan (or two) yourself -- which is kind of weird.
Thermalright will give you all the items needed for the complete installation of the cooler, you'll receive brackets and kit for Intel Socket LGA1366, LGA1156 and LGA775 and even some thermal paste (Chill Factor II). You'll notice that a back plate is also required for installation, meaning the motherboard needs to come out of the PC for proper installation.
The cooler is a reasonable sized unit alright, I'll give you that one. Check out the dimensions. Size: Length 127mm x Width 63mm x Height 160mm
You'll spot a whopping six heatpipe design with optional dual fan configuration, the Venomous X exudes cooling performance. The unit weighs 755g and that's excluding fan and bracket system.
We test and review the Thermalright HR-02 CPU cooler. Thermalright actually introduces this product as a passive CPU Cooler. The HR-02 is the second revision of the legacy Thermalright HR-01 cooler. We'll test it passively cooled yet we'll also pair it with Thermalright's TY-140 fan, a 1300 RPM fan that is silent, yet high performing. As stated, the results stunned me, this is really really good stuff.
Thermalright Venomous-X review
We review the Thermalright Venomous-X CPU cooler. A cooler with great looks, excellent performance and some very clever innovations. A cooler that is compatible with Intel LGA sockets 775, 1156, and 1366. The cooler is ready for the upcoming Nehalem Gulftown based processors (six-core) and also comes with something new, called the 'Pressure Vault Bracket', allowing you to decide how much pressure the cooler should have on top of that expensive processor of yours.
