ID-Cooling Announces the Hunter VC-Twin CPU Cooler

ID-Cooling announced the Hunter VC-Twin CPU cooler. Based on a classic "D-type" dual fin-stack design, the VC-Twin features a pair of thermal-grade anti-oxidation coated aluminium fin stacks, to which heat from the base is conveyed by five 8 mm-thick copper heat pipes. The CPU base features a vapor-chamber plate making contact with the CPU, and dissipating heat to the heat pipes.

The cooler includes two fans, a 120 mm intake, and a larger 140 mm conveyor between the two fin-stacks. Both fans support 4-pin PWM control. The 120 mm fan spins between 800-1,800 RPM, pushing up to 60.7 CFM of air, with a noise output ranging between 16.2-29.2 dBA. The 140 mm fan, on the other hand, spins between 800-1,600 RPM, pushing up to 76.8 CFM, with a noise output ranging between 16.8-32.6 dBA. Measuring 123 mm x 153 mm x 160 mm (L×W×H), the cooler weighs about 1,418 g. It can deal with thermal loads of up to 200W, and hence supports all modern CPU socket types, including LGA2011v3, LGA115x, AM3+, and FM2+. The company didn't announce pricing.

finally a badass looking heatsink aircooled for CPU.

120mm fan 800-1800rpm :eek:
140mm fan 800-1600rpm :eek:

definitely not a quiet cooler, yet not top notch performer..

lately the trend is equip HS with Tornado-like fan and claim it Star-performer...
also my Hyper48 equipped with 92mm 5k rpm fan can dissipate 200W of tdp.. but then i must use ear protection:roll:

From my experience even Intel stock fan at 1200 rpm is barely audible. 140 mm fan on 800 rpm should behave very well noise-wise. Kinda disagree with you on this one.

And in my experience any fan over 800 RPM is loud, Kinda disagree with you on this one.

But a HS with a high RPM fan will give good performance, with high noise output. For most people that apparently do not care as much as you and i about silence from their computers that will be a good trade off.

dude.. dimension matter ;-)

intel hsf fan is 75mm of diameter.
www.overclock.net/t/1402067/xtreme-hardware-120mm-and-140mm-fan-roundup
as you can observe by graphics, same speed but with wider diameter mean more noise.
so a barely audible 2'000rpm 80mm fan will be loud if has 120mm diameter and incredibly noisy if 180mm.

Tangential speed?

Im surprised people really even consider air coolers anymore what with AIO cpu coolers that can take a single 120mm rad that you never have to bleed.

An NH-D15 costs the same and has better performance and less noise.

It also looks like shit. I dont think I ever heard my AiO cooler. In fact, I know I havent and I sleep next to the thing.

Might be a nice upgrade from the Xigmatek DK Night Hawk on my main rig- waiting on reviews :)

I think Ive reached the max potential of Air Cooling for My CPU, the bigger ones really only drop the temps by 1-2 C now.

120mm fan: 16.2-29.2 dBA.
140mm fan: 16.8-32.6 dBA.

Too loud for me. The 16 dBA rating is the maximum for my fans.

Yeah? And your point? Did you really have to be a dick and say "MuSt Be SoMeThInG YoU aTe." and present it in that particular way? That doesnt make you look at all intelligent mocking me or make it look as though you are trying to prove a point. I said you dont have to bleed the system meaning you dont have to drain it, clean it, and re-add coolant back into the loop. I never said anything at all about it not being able to leak or fail. There is a difference.

So, who sounds silly now?

what are you trying to say?
at the beginning of the video computer was in a epic failed sp0t.. being bumped by the door every second, also rad wasn't screwed to any were.... was lying there.... WTF?
that AIO failed because it was misplaced that's it.... even a custom loop would fail in that situation ....
priceless.....
