OCZ Unveils the Vanquisher CPU Cooler

OCZ Technology Group today announced the OCZ Vanquisher CPU cooler, a much-anticipated expansion of their cooling product line. Using a highly efficient and compact design, the Vanquisher is an enthusiast-grade thermal solution for the latest high performance processors. Catering to the needs of gamers and enthusiasts, the Vanquisher will become an integral addition to any extreme-performance gaming rig.


The OCZ Vanquisher aggressively cools your CPU thanks to a pure copper base plate and three copper heat pipes that rapidly transfer heat away from the processor up to the dense, aluminum fin array where the thermal load is quickly dissipated by the included 92mm fan. The efficient heatpipe design moves so much heat that the fin array is able to transfer up to 200 Watts. The Vanquisher also utilizes a unique low speed fan mounted with rubber connectors to effectively decrease vibration and noise, ensuring minimal distractions at your workstation.

“The performance of OCZ Vanquisher is not compromised due to its compact size,” states Jacky Huang, VP of Product Management, OCZ Technology. “Instead, it reduces the CPU temperature more effectively than many larger coolers in the market. As a bonus, its compact form factor allows it to fit in even most crowded environments and cases.”

The extremely compact and versatile OCZ Vanquisher CPU cooler is compatible with sockets AMD 754/939/AM2 and Intel 775. Because no motherboard back plate is required, the hassle-free Vanquisher is installed quickly and easily for consumers of all skill levels. With no need to remove your motherboard to install this cooler, the OCZ Vanquisher can get right to work cooling your CPU and enhancing your computing experience in seconds.

Light-weight and quiet, compact yet highly resourceful, the OCZ Vanquisher provides superior and reliable cooling with its state-of-the-art design for enthusiasts looking to upgrade for better performance and improved system stability.

Very possibly :p I actually like the AC design more, it just looks better. Where the OCZ version looks like they just thought "lets cut a little bit out the fins" stylee.

Yes, but that design is more than likely copywrite infringement on the AC design. It also doesnt help that OCZ didnt even make any effort to make it look like a different design by adding some extra heatpipes.

It clips right on? What and if I had a backplate from a diff cpu cooler on the back? Would I need to remove it first?:confused:

Don't mind me.I am just being stupid. When I unscrew the cpu cooler the backplate will just fall off right?

From what I'm aware of though, the other manufacturers changed the design enough to make it something different and "their own". Thers nothing wrong with basing your own design off another design, but this is an almost carbon cast copy.

WOULD OF BEEN NICE IF THEY COPIED THE COOPER PIPE BASE COOLER AND UPGRADED IT A BIT such as fill in the void cracks with some cooper :) I forget what brand it was.. direct pipe cooling.. teknicks woould know.

Edit: aleast thats a cooler that is harder to find.. ohwell I dont see this flying off anyshelfs.. guess it saves them from having to design a cooler.. only profit:slap:

If you look at the Freezer vs the OCZ whatever, IMO the OCZ looks like the cheap poor mans version, it looks to have copper plated heatpipes (possibly suggesting it uses lower grade copper, or worse still - not real copper at all) and part of the base is nickel (AC kept it all copper)

they even say it can take 200W of heat.. the freezer 7 cant do that. So unless it really is upgraded, its gunna suck in a lot of people.
