Let's face the truth, the needs of consumers, when dealing with the computer industry, has changed drastically over the last couple years. The economic downturn has caused many people to struggle to make ends meet and the last thing on most people's mind is building a higher end PC. Most families or individuals are trying to get the most out of what they have or make slight upgrades where they can. Keeping with this philosophy, many people who do want to get a little more performance are looking to overclock their CPU to get just a little more out of their processor. Along with this, however, comes added heat, and thus a need to reduce that heat. How can those pushing their CPUs just a little bit, manage the increased temperatures while maintaining a small upgrader's budget?
The answer is found in the inefficiency of the stock heatsink and the need to look for some sort of upgrade from the stock cooler. Sure, there are many different heatsinks out there to choose from. There are vertical stacked, multiple fan coolers, with all the bells and whistles. Then there is the less expensive variety that serves as a small upgrade to the stock heatsink, but maintains the necessary smaller budgets. The search for a mild increase in the cooling of the CPU, at a reasonable cost, makes a stop here at an innovative heatsink from Thermaltake.
The Thermaltake ISGC-100 serves to upgrade the stock cooler to the next level. The silent fan technology of the Thermaltake ISGC-100 is also a nice feature. The compact design, with stock type retention brackets, makes the ISGC-100 an ideal choice for a simple system upgrade or for a compact HTPC case. HiTechLegion
