OCZ Vendetta CPU cooler

OCZ Technology today unveiled the OCZ Vendetta CPU cooler as their leading-edge yet affordable solution. Using a distinctive, highly efficient heat pipe and fin design developed by Xigmatek in combination with a low-noise fan, the Vendetta is built to tackle heat-induced performance degradation and to solve the cooling challenges of today’s enthusiast system builds. While traditional heat pipe CPU coolers implement a solid base plate design, the Vendetta’s three copper heat pipes make direct contact with the processor to ensure the most rapid heat transfer. A novel “dimple” micro-configuration of the stacked aluminum fins adds turbulences, thereby reducing the skin effect of laminar air flow. Moreover, a folded “V” shape macro-configuration of the fins adds surface area without compromising the compact design. As a result, the OCZ Vendetta offers effective cooling area found usually only in much larger coolers to parallel their performance without the spatial requirements.

The ultra-quiet fan, with its anti-vibration rubber connectors to reduce excess noise, sets new standards in quiet, yet extremely efficient cooling performance. Because of its compact design, the OCZ Vendetta CPU cooler can be accommodated with ease even in the most crowded cases. The versatile Vendetta is compatible with AMD AM2/939/754/755 and Intel 775 sockets and can be installed quickly and easily by end-users at all skill levels.Compact style combined with quiet and efficient heat dissipation makes the OCZ Vendetta the top choice to cool the latest processors.
