SilverStone Intros Nitrogon NT07-1156 CPU Cooler

SilverStone is ready with a Nitrogon NT07 series CPU cooler compatible with the LGA1156 socket. Like the NT07-775 (made for LGA775), the NT07-1156 from SilverStone is a low-profile CPU cooler that is positioned to be a Intel reference HSF replacement. It bears resemblance with the Intel HSF, using essentially the same design, with its own additions of a base made entirely of copper, and manual speed control. The base conveys heat to a heatsink with spirally-projecting, forked, aluminum fins. A 90 mm fan circulates air, it measures 90mm (W) x 90mm (H) x 16mm (D), with two speed modes selectable by a tiny switch on the fan-frame: 1200~3000rpm ± 10% and 1200~1800rpm ± 10%; pushing 12~40 CFM / 12~23 CFM on the two modes, respectively.

The cooler measures 93mm (W) x 36.5mm (H) x 93mm (D), weighing 310 g. With LGA1156 push-pins, the cooler is easy to install and remove. It supports CPUs with TDP of up to 95W, which means that it should be able to run dual-core Core i3, Core i5 processors with mild overclocking, or quad-core Core i5, Core i7 within default speeds. The cooler will reach stores soon, it will be moderately priced around US $20.

that looks like a crummy intel stock cooler, but looks arent everything, might perform well for a good price.

A later revision of the LGA1156 HSF did away with the copper base and made the fins radially-projecting (instead of spirally) that way they cut its metal content (weight) significantly.

A new design cookie cutter cooler to add to the Intel collection.
May as well get rid of all the screws and replace them with Silverstone ones while you're at it...You won't notice the difference, but there are some changes to the heads of the screws and you'll know they're Silverstone.

Anyone who buys this is dumb. Why would you buy this if you wanted to overclock? Save up the extra money and get a real cooler.

Why can't make this damn thing with a vapor chamber in the middle. The Inytel coolers found on Extreme versions were using such tech and they were rated very good on Frostytech as being very silent, very effective and also very low profile all at the same time. And then they make this kind of junk...

This product is not targetted at people wanting to overclock.

There are several reasons someone would buy this cooler:

1.) The stock cooler broke.(I know I break those stupid push pins all the time when removing the cooler for cleaning and TIM replacement.)
2.) The processor didn't come with a heatsink(bought of ebay or used) and they just want something that works.

Of course, for either of those to be logical, this cooler is going to have to sell for dirt cheap. However, socket 775 had plenty of these knock-off coolers that were almost identical to the Intel heatsink, and they we all dirt cheap ~$10-15 Shipped, so I'm guess this one will follow the trend and be right in the same price bracket.

Ohh dont have to buy this Silver Stone cooler :)

Got a Pentium LGA 775 cooler laying around- Pretty much makes this cooler worthless when this is laying around or 17 bucks on some sights.

And what would you recommend to make the push pins line up with the 1156 mounting holes?

Do silverstone hsfs also bow and destroy the motherboard horribly like stock intel ones?

I swear that I saw intel written on those HSF!I had to acutally look the original pics to realise that was the silverstone logo.
Anyway,I have to agree with newtekie,cuz just for curiosity I went to look for the original intel hsf on newegg and i couldn't find any for 1156,but i saw several other models similary priced (or even with lower prices)than SilverStone model,like one from CoolerMaster and a bunc from a manufacter named Dynatron(which looks even crappier than intel own hsf).So,I guess there's a market for products like that.

That so makes me think why can't they just make a decent hardware and all passive so it wouldn't heat up at all. I mean atm we are speaking humongous cooling systems or water cooling solutions while why should hardware heat at all?

Well the high end ones have copper in the centre so basically it's a halfway between the two. Seriously how can they make this out as being a new product?

Why buy a stock cooler, can't SS just sell the fan as that's the only change.

TBQH why bother with a stock cooler at all when an H50 can fit:
