    After a brief sighting at Computex 2012, we come across the Aeolus Big Frost dual-tower CPU cooler again. This time, the cooler appears polished and ready for market launch. The cooler is a simplified version of DeepCool's Assassin, retaining its dual aluminum fin tower design. The design consists of two symmetric aluminum fin stacks, through which six 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes pass, drawing heat from a copper CPU base. The fin-stack is then ventilated by two 120 mm fans in push-pull configuration.

    The heatsink measures 126 x 136 x 159 mm, weighing 1,109 g (including fans). The fan pushing "fresh" air through the first fin stack is configured to spin at speeds of up to 1,300 RPM, with noise levels as high as 22.6 dBA, while the fan pulling air and conveying it to the second fin stack spins at speeds ranging in 900-1,500 RPM, with 21.4 to 32.1 dBA noise levels. The Big Frost supports a full range of CPU socket types available in the market today, including Intel LGA2011, LGA1155/LGA1156, LGA1366, LGA775, AMD AM3+/AM3/AM2+/AM2, and FM2/FM1. In China, the cooler is expected to sell for 200 RMB (US $32).

    I like Deepcool.

    Looks like they get the cheapest design and then modify it slightly. ( cuts in the fins)

    Shame that recently there's been quite some hyping of the brand and prices have gone up huge amounts in the UK at least. ( They are as expensive as Noctua if not more so)

    LOLWUT? Deepcool's a go-to brand over here because it's not as expensive as Noctua. And some of its sub-$45 coolers are better than other companies' $50-$70 coolers.

    You can get the Fiend Shark here for half that price. While the Noctua is priced that way more or less.

    Ive a deepcool backup sink as well. Good performance for the price imo. It comes in with brackets and retentions for different sockets. Other brands would probably sell those separately. Bang for the buck indeed.

    Deepcool often OEM for Alpenfóhn*, I think they may do stuff for Be Quiet as well.

    * Just to give you an idea of quality.
