    October, 2006 - Thermaltake Technology announces the newest member of the Orb series CPU coolers – the all-new Ruby Orb.

    The Ruby Orb utilizes an radial dissipation design that is unique in the cooling industry. The number of cooling fins multiply as they extend from the center of the Ruby Orb to reduce backpressure on the fan and faster heat dissipation. The y-split fin design allows the Ruby Orb to maximize its cooling fins up to 140 fins at the end to provide extended cooling surface and smooth airflow.

    The Ruby Orb uses a 120mm ultra-silent fan outputting only 17dBA to let the users enjoy peace and quiet while the computer is performing at its very best. The Ruby Orb includes a built-in red LED clear fan that, when lit with the ruby red heatsink fins, the cooler as whole looks absolutely stunning.

    The Ruby Orb differs from our famous Blue Orb II in that it is made of entirely aluminum for weight reduction. Acknowledging the efficiency change and the low-wattage CPUs that Intel and AMD are releasing in 2006, all-aluminum CPU heatsinks are much more cost-effective and practical. The brilliance, performance, and quietness of the Ruby Orb is sure to be the best choice for computer enthusiasts.

    The Ruby Orb supports Intel’s newest Core 2 Duo CPU and AMD AM2 CPU, perfect for Socket LGA775/AM2/939/940/754 processors.

    or make it red/blue: grab a blue Orb 2 and a ruby orb..exchange the fans...there you have it :)

    I may do that...

    I will be getting a new case and a whole crapload of specific wiring stuff. Will be making a superclean blue UV based PC..with black case.. ;) lets see how it turns out.
    Edit:

    just a coincidence: Ruby is the ATI character/model...ATI is red...?!? perfect for people with sweet Crossfire systems, make everything red..that would look sweet too :)

    cheers

    Get a Red MSI board, the Ruby Orb, those ATI certified OCZ sticks, Red Ati Card, a red case, and red cable rap....you got something going on.

    But instead of that Red MSI board, get one of those Abit Fatal1ty Series, they always have a red theme, and red LEDs on the board. A perfect match.
