Thermaltake, leading DIY thermal solutions brand, launches a multi-socket support budget CPU cooler, the Contac 29. The Thermaltake Contac29 offers excellent cooling performance and a formidable price point when compared with the current competition on the market. Its Direct Contact Technology allows the three 8 mm heatpipes to immediately touch the CPU and thereby maximize the cooling effect. The multi-socket support offers excellent compatibility and flexibility in the choice and upgrade of your processor. It supports all major Intel sockets such as the LGA1156, LGA1366 and older LGA775 models. As for AMD, sockets AM3, AM2+ and AM2 are supported.
The three u-shaped heatpipes transfer processor heat up into the aluminum heatsink fins. In a second step the preinstalled 120 mm PWM fan blows air over the layered fins to further increase cooling efficiency, while the specially curved fins prevent outside heat to intrude the dissipation area.
As the Contac 29 is equipped with full PWM functionality the fan speed control is taken care of by the motherboard which automatically adjusts the speed according to actual CPU load between 800 and 2000 RPM. Even at highest speeds potential noise development is kept at the lowest level by using Anti-vibration Soft Mounts that virtually eliminate movement of the fan.
If you want to further maximize cooling efficiency, Thermaltake has already included a second set of Anti-vibration Soft Mounts which you can use to install another 120 mm exhaust fan across the preinstalled in-take fan.
