There is an abundance of CPU coolers on the market, something for just about every need or want, to suit just about any budget. Big coolers, loud cooler, tall coolers, small coolers, it’s like something out of a Dr. Seuss book.
One interesting combination to find is cool and quiet. We’ve seen a few dominant heatsinks on the market but they typically come with high output, loud fans that help achieve those impressive thermal performance results. We’ve also seen some very quiet heatsinks, but they tend to offer mediocre thermal performance, and overclocking with those is certainly out of the question. But finding a heatsink that accomplish both great cooling in a low noise setup is rather rare.
The Thermaltake Jing is one such CPU cooler that claims to offer a successful combination of strong performance while maintaining low noise levels. We know that Thermaltake has an excellent track record in producing successful heatsinks, as the Frio was one of the best CPU air coolers we’ve tested.
Let’s see if the Jing’s claim of cool and quiet can meet our expectations.
“Since the beginning of Thermaltake in 1999, it has been at the forefront of creating new and exciting products at a time where most computer users were provided little to no choices for components that may seem irrelevant, but are in reality crucial to the performance of a PC. Thermaltake Server Series solutions, with years of thermal experience and industry leadership, sets its goal on reforming total thermal management in the server segment by formulating the perfect mixture of versatility, efficiency and thermal management with each respective server product category: Rackmount Chassis, Server Fixed & Redundant Power Supply and Server CPU Cooling Management Solutions.”
