The Thermaltake Jing continues in the heatpipe technology tradition, a design that we’ve seen to be very effective for cooling efficiency when used in a tower-style setup, doing a respectable job at keeping an i7 2600K overclocked at 4.5GHz under control.

The new aesthetics of the green and grey color scheme is a definite change from what we typically see from Thermaltake’s red and black scheme of late, and it may not suit everyone’s tastes. It’s probably a love-hate thing, but we think the Jing looks quite stylish.

The Thermaltake Jing offers great aesthetics, low noise levels, and very easy installation; it is a good all-around cooler for Core i5/i7 systems. Not only does it run quiet, but offers good cooling ability for moderate overclocks. It doesn’t excel in any one category, but it does a nice job overall. The glaring downside is its price; at $70 it is rather expensive, putting it in the upper echelon of CPU coolers. We saw the Noctua perform a bit better on temperatures and also run quiet and a bit more affordable. Mind you, none of the other coolers have the unique aesthetics of the Jing, so we can understand a bit of a premium.

If you’re looking for a new multi-socket cooler for your new system and don’t expect top overclocks, but want a quiet cooler with nice aesthetics, take a look at the Thermaltake Jing, it’s worth checking out.
