Thermaltake Announces Four New ISGC Series CPU Coolers

Thermaltake has four new CPU coolers in the making, part of the series marked with "ISGC" (abbreviates Inspiration of Silent Gaming Cooling) in the model name. The naming scheme propagates as ISGC 100, 200, 300 and 400. The first two supporting all current AMD sockets and Intel LGA-775, while the last two supporting all those sockets, plus LGA-1366.

ISGE 100 and 200 measure 124 x 96 x 70 mm and 90 x 96 x 140.5 mm respectively, and feature 92 mm fans, while the 300 and 400 measure 126 x 71 x 161 mm and 126 x 71 x 60 mm respectively and use 120 mm fans. Using copper heatpipes as thick at 6 mm, and aluminum fins. Press Release follows:

Thermaltake is proud to unveil an array of silent and attractive CPU coolers - ISGC Series today. ISGC series includes 4 models, ISGC-100, ISGC-200, ISGC-300 and ISGC-400. ISGC-100/ 200 are designed for the mainstream users while ISGC-300/ 400 are aiming for the high end users to support the latest Intel Core i7 CPU.

Top with the features from ISGC Fan 12, ISGC coolers also bring silence to the users. The Hydro Dynamic Bearing (H.D.B) not only extends the product life; it also reduces the noise level. Special designed fan blade is to optimize the air flow and thus noise can be decreased to the minimal level. With these smart concepts, the coolers are bringing sufficient cooling to the CPUs while the environment can still remain silent and comfortable.

For ISGC coolers, your choice will depend on your needs. ISGC-100 and ISGC-200 are equipped with 9cm PWM fan to automatically adjust the fan speed according to the CPU temperature; ISGC-300 and ISGC-400 feature with 12cm speed controlled fan for users to adjust the fan speed according to their needs.

The ISGC coolers will be fully satisfactory as never before; Enjoy your PC system reaching a new high performance level with Thermaltake ISGC series now!

the igsc 300 looks like a decent cooler and the 400 looks like it is going to bend a lot :shadedshu

Wonder how these will compare to the TRUE!

Poorly, I'd imagine. Look how badly they crushed down those heatpipes. Design is intended to keep them as whole as possible to promote heat exchange flow. :shadedshu

Not expecting much from these. Dontcha know that low noise = high heat? Seems they even tried to design them as such. Keeping up with industry standards and all. Now, if any of these were HDT with a milled base, they'd have crazy good performance.

I smell fail.

Tell that story to a Noctua owner. Both quiet and has no HDT. They work really well IMO. Quieter fans these days are comming by way of grooves in the fan blades that reduce the noise level of the fan, and leave the CFM pretty much where it needs to be. Ill hand it to ya on the crushed pipes, but I think the 300 stands a good chance of being at least average in performance, not exactly fail.

I just recieved a box from Thermaltake today with some new goodies. Expect to see results from these coolers to surface soon.

Cool. :)

Most of my ire is directed at the crushed pipes. If they can't transfer heat effectively, all those pretty fins at the top are going to be pretty and useless.

I have to agree with that to an extent. Ive seen some squished, really mangled looking pipes before, and they still do an OK job of ridding the heat. I can't really argue about the degree of bending which they could loose efficiency tho. I personally have no idea, I would assume as long as they arent kinked they would still have potential.

400 doesn;t look like it would cool well at all. Not a fan of those types of designs. 300 looks pretty good though.

Wow,Another CPU cooler set.LAtely I see all companies release coolers following the fashion from TRUE and inseting the fan in middle rather than at a side of the cooler.

the curves do reduce "whoosh" noise because they cleave the air but majority of fan noise is due to type of bearing and motor. i'm sure these thermaltake fans are going to be loud as usual.

I did that, wait... 4 years ago (tt sonic tower, drilled the holes in the fins so i could mount a fan in the middle, i really dont know why they havent made that option possible i the first place... yes, its a pain to mount but...)
