OCZTVEND: Off the Shelf
Right away it's apparent that OCZ is serious about packaging. The Vendetta (sku# OCZTVEND) comes completely surrounded by closed-cell foam, and I assure you that the if the Manchester United soccer team placed a round with this package, the Vendetta would come away unscathed.
The OCZ Vendetta Exposed HDT (heatpipe direct touch) CPU cooler is based on the 92mm size cooling fan, which comes supplied with the kit. Notice how well everything has been embedded into the protective foam; it actually took some work to get the heatsink out of the packaging because it was so deep.
Enclosed in the kit you will find everything you will need to build and install the OCZ Vendetta into your system. Expect to find:
92mm Cooling Fan
Mounting Hardware for every modern motherboard socket
Silicon-based Thermal Compound
Vendetta HDT Finsink
OCZ has included the efficient pulse width modulation 92mm cooling fan.
Rated Voltage: 12V DC
Fan Speed: 1200-2800RPM
Fan Air Flow: 39-54.6 CFM
Noise Level: 22-34 dBA
Bearing type: ball
Connector: 4 pin with PWM
So far the OCZ Vendetta Exposed HDT CPU cooler has remained up to expectations, especially from a name like OCZ. After you see the results (keep reading, don't skip to the results page), you will understand why I am not going into detail about the lack of a second 92mm fan to the backside of the finsink.
