Looking back over the past decade, the history of CPU cooling solutions has taken many shapes and forms. It seems ironic that so many different designs and concepts have been used, some with success and some not, only to have our modern solutions use some very traditional concepts. Mixing cutting edge technology with the tried and true methods of yesteryear is old hat, but Thermalright is helping remodel traditional solutions into modern marvels. The Thermalright SI-128 is one such modern marvel, and the focus of this review.
Built upon the SI-120 model which was popular with overclockers and enthusiasts, the new and improved SI-128 boasts tightly gapped fins for more surface area with longer and wider wingspan. In addition, the huge 8mm multiple heatpipes permit even more efficient heat transfer to the aluminum fins for better cooling. The SI-128 offers a more robust aluminum fin group, which is perfectly designed to support a 120mm fan mounted onto the top of the unit for maximum cooling performance.
