Thermaltake Intros UX200 ARGB Lighting CPU Cooler

Thermaltake is on a drive to rehash many of its older CPU cooler designs with touches of modernity, such as addressable-RGB LED lighting and newer fans with improved bearings. The latest such effort is the UX200 ARGB Lighting. The cooler is based on a tower-type heatsink in which the fins get narrower towards the bottom of the fin-stack, to improve clearance with your motherboard's VRM and M.2 slots. The aluminium fins and copper heat-pipes are anodized black. The four 6 mm-thick copper heat-pipes make direct contact with the CPU at the base, conveying heat through the fin-stack. The aluminium base has some finnage of its own.

The cooler is ventilated by a 120 mm fan that has 15 addressable-RGB LEDs studded into the bore of the frame, with a silicone diffuser spreading their light. The lighting takes in standard 3-pin ARGB input. The fan itself takes in 4-pin PWM input, features a hydraulic bearing that's rated for 30,000 hours, and spins between 300 to 1,500 RPM, pushing up to 43.34 CFM of air, with a noise output of up to 26.33 dBA. The cooler is designed to handle thermal loads of up to 130W, although it only supports mainstream-desktop CPU socket types, which include LGA115x and AM4. The company didn't reveal pricing.

If you remove the RGB fan, it's basically a black hyper 212

... which is a good thing.

Except this one is probably twice the price because of the RGB.

Which IIRC, CM has already started making a while back, so I'm not exactly sure what the point of this one is, except to say "me too" ???????

Also, can someone please explain to me exactly what "Finnage" is.... I mean other than some newfangled marketing hype-gibberish :)

Finnage is techspeak for fins - not to be confused with the Nordic population who are Finnish from Finland

Well Hyper 212 has better mounting system.

Sidenote: What happened to the Airflow, 43.34CFM @1500RPM?? Not only that but less air pressure and life-time rating?? And comsumes nearly 6W!!
My Thermaltake Luna 12 makes 50 CFM @ 1200RPM, has better air pressure and life-time rating and only consumes 2W.

I don't know about that, I'm pretty sure it's that stuff Popeye the PC man eats?
