Thermaltake Launches Jing Silent CPU Cooler

Thermaltake, leading DIY thermal solutions brand, launch their latest CPU air-cooler specifically developed for silent operation while maintaining a maximum of cooling efficiency, the Thermaltake Jing. Its name is derived from the Chinese, representing “Silence” and carrying with it the concepts of comfort, excellence and exquisiteness. The universal socket support makes it compatible to all computer processors currently available on the market. With a maximum cooling capacity of up to 200W and an almost un-audible noise level of 16 dBA at a fan speed of 800 RPM, the Jing CPU cooler is the ideal solution for noise sensitive users expecting uncompromising performance.

Unlike traditional up-side-down air flow designs, the Jing utilizes a tower side-flow design to optimize cooling performance. To attain maximum cooling performance, Thermaltake’s Jing adopts 5 Φ6mm high-efficiency heat-pipes conducting heat from the Nickel coated mirror base directly into the cooling tower which is made of 41 0.5 mm thick specially designed aluminum fins to increase the overall thermal dissipation area. The two preinstalled extra silent 120 mm VR fans can be manually adjusted between 800RPM and 1300RPM according to differing user needs. Through their inhale-exhaust reverse fan design a greater airflow is achieved resulting in enhanced thermal performance.

By utilizing a particularly thin fan enclosure frame which is open to all four sides, noise generated by the airflow is reduced as much as any possible. Additionally a recess in the cooling fins at the entry and exit points of the airflow creates something similar to an air-cushion, giving the air an optimized angel to stream into between the cooling fins while at the same time reducing noise development even further. All of these measures make the Jing CPU cooler Silent by Design.



The Thermaltake Jing CPU cooler is available at a suggested retail price of US$59.99.

The grayish parts of the cooler looks cheap... Anyways, it looks powerful as the spec sheet says...

Looks pretty spiffy. However they spelled ANGLE wrong, also so did BTA :)

I know NVidia has an amazing marketing department when new coolers look NVidia themed. It just needs a little tag that says "The way it's meant to be cooled." :roll:

I'm not sure the actual value of this cooler. It's quiet clearly, but it seems like if the fans low 16Db@800rpm isn't going to be useful for overclockers very much. They don't detail the amount of air it blows at that speed, or at it's top rpm, but in the past, particularly with those open sided fan designs, they don't blow a ton of air. A low rpm is great for keeping noise down, but is usually pretty limiting in terms of the amount of air blown.

Looks nice though.

Android themed, then? lulz
Cool.....my HTC Desire with it´s 1 GHz SnapDragon would be delighted....
however I would get a pocket-storage-problem :roll:

I reviewed this cooler a month ago.


Sorry, I see my error now;)

I have a question about the coolers design

1.) Because the two coolers are in facing opposing directions would it trap heat in the center of the heatsink.

2.) Also most cases have exhast fans at the rear, tower style heatisnks are usually facing the cases rear exhaust fan for extra heat removal. Because one of the Thermaltake Jing's fans is facing the case's exhaust fan wouldnt that prevent the case's exhaust fan from doing it's job effectively.


Anyone case to answer this. :)

PS. This cooler looks like a cheap copy of the Sonic Tower Rev 2, which can mout a 120mm fan on opposing sides.

this is actually one of the best coolers on the market,it can outperform the megahalem and every xigmatek on the market.

@dent1 dont post pictures of other coolers in a news thread

Link?

Edit: Nevermind....found it. Review/Preview This cooler does look like it performs nicely. Wish it was a different color though.

Wait, all those coolers idle at over 50C? And the difference b/t load and idle temps are only around 5C?

Yeah, I really like their testing methodology, because it truly "levels the playing field" and stresses the s*%t out of the coolers. I wish more reviewers used this type of setup.

You would be surprised at the hate I get for it, and the fear it drives into some manufacturers who wont submit coolers as they cant save face once placed in our testing. If you look at reviews with 20-25 degree ambients and uncontrolled humidity, the coolers make larger gaps on their charts.

This is more of a real world testing atmosphere, as when you game for a while, the inside of your case is closer to 40 degrees than it is that 25 degrees you started with;) (open air testing does not apply here)

Those numbers you just saw were more a mark of the coolers efficiency under stress than an actual temperature you might see day to day.

Ugh, thats a really disgusting color. No way in hell i'd put a thing like that on my PC even if they give it for free lol.

Actually Thermaltake coolers have been around for awhile but seems like i can't see one that stands in charts against the best coolers around, and the price is somewhat disappointing for its performance, maybe that's just me who thinks like that, anyway, the color is horrible lol.

I was not a fan of the color either. POS bought this cooler, removed some of the plastic, replaced the fans, and it looks pretty good now.

Either I read that wrong, or you don't understand what constitutes a push-pull fan setup. :wtf:

Seems consistent, but I'm not sure how accurate that is. Above average workloads (not 3d) up cpu temp much more than 4-5c. More like 15-20c. If this is accurate then that would mean chipset/ram is 75% of a cpu's load heat. Is that really the case? Or are you just not putting much heat into the faux cpu? Especially wondering if that would be true given how many cooler tests are on open well ventilated benches that I'd assume would close that gap if that were the cause of the heat, which they don't.

If it's not pushing the coolers realistically in the load tests then that makes the rankings inaccurate, as we've seen before the performance gap between coolers really only shows up at higher heat loads. Push the average into the 80s and new gaps start showing up, push the average into the 90s and gaps that were slight before become hugely exaggerated. This is why I've always felt we need 3 speed tests, stock, average overclock, then something high but achievable by an enthusiast for 24/7 (like 4.2-4.4).

And I wouldn't just automatically assume a manufacture is afraid of your testing method because it's so great, they may very well be avoiding it because it isn't.
