Akasa Rolls Out Vegas Chroma CPU Coolers with ARGB Lighting

Akasa rolled out the Vegas Chroma line of top-flow CPU coolers. The coolers come in two variants based on CPU socket types supported. The Vegas Chroma LG supports Intel LGA115x sockets, while the Vegas Chroma AM supports AMD sockets AM4 and AM3+. The cooler's design is an awful lot similar to Intel's stock HSF for desktop processors. An anodized aluminium heatsink with spirally-projecting fins, is ventilated by a 120 mm fan. Airflow from the heatsink ends up ventilating other components around the CPU socket, such as VRM heatsinks, M.2 heatsink, and possibly even memory.

The hydraulic bearing fan takes in 4-pin PWM for its main function, and 3-pin ARGB for the lighting. LEDs are embedded in the hub of the translucent white impeller. In both variants, the fan spins between 500 and 1,800 RPM, pushing up to 51.3 CFM of air, with a noise output of up to 32.5 dBA. Both variants measure 120 mm x 120 mm length and width; but differ in height. The LG variant is 59 mm tall, and the AM variant 63 mm. The LG variant weighs 380 g as it requires a back-plate, while the AM variant tips the scales at 340 g. The company didn't reveal pricing.

All I see is a stock Intel cooler with colorful lighting for AMD's socket AM4 or Intel.

Though at the right price, and as long as its at least not WORSE than a stock cooler, it'd be fine for a budget build, or just replacing a stock cooler that finally died.

also, why not black screws?

Might use one I'm a budget apu build

This looks to be an inferior cooler to the lowest-end AMD retail cooler in existence - the new Wraith Stealth, which is smaller, has a better fan, has a better contact patch, has more surface area for cooling (despite being smaller) and has thumbscrews for easier installation.

So, unlike the AMD cooler, this:

1) Isn't free
2) Isn't as good as the free one

Yet another product ruined by RGBLED-for-the-sake-of-it.
That's a summary of 2017, 2018, and 2019 in a nutshell and it looks like 2020 is going to be no different :rolleyes:

At least it's programmable so you can at least turn it down or off... Or set to just one color.

This cooler is just a POS. Worse than stock AMD and likely no better than Intel stock.
Waste of money to even make this.
