    In an attempt to make your PC more colorful than ever, Thermaltake today launched the latest generation of Orb Series CPU cooler, X5 Orb FXII. Compatible with the latest Intel and AMD sockets, the X5 Orb FXII is looking to satisfy the needs of both modders and overclockers. The CPU cooler measures 140mm x 84 mm, weights in 591 grams and is made out of an massive aluminum heatsink with 140 fins and a 112mm x 36.5mm fan. Working at 1800 RPM the fan also shows the current temperature of the fan in both ℃ / ℉ and the real-time fan rotation speed. Thermaltake has the X5 Orb FXII cooler available in five different colors: blue, black, red, gold, green.

    yay, MORE COLORS.

    I'll cease mocking until we get some performance results, for now it just looks like the same old zalman design except blue.

    the blue orb did well actually. A top seller for sometime. I love the new colors, which seems to be the only difference really.
