ID-COOLING Releases IS-60 EVO ARGB Low Profile CPU Air Cooler

ID-COOLING today announced IS-60 EVO ARGB low profile CPU air cooler, featuring only 64 mm total height, 6 copper heatpipes, copper base and one 120x120x15mm PWM ARGB fan plus a 92 mm x 92 mm x15 mm PWM fan. IS-60 EVO ARGB is specially designed for high performance small form factor builds with a TDP up to 130 W. It is compatible with the mainstream CPU sockets on ITX systems, including Intel LGA1200/1150/1151/1155/1156 and AMD AM4.

The thermal solution is achieved by utilizing a few key structural designs: pure copper base and pure copper heatpipes, high quality aluminium fins which soldered to the heatpipes. Similarly to IS-47K, this new cooler is carefully designed so the layout enables a 100% RAM compatibility on almost all ITX motherboards when the motherboard doesn't have high M.2 heatsink between CPU and PCI-E, for those motherboards who do have high M.2 heatsink module, this cooler can be mounted in an upward direction, which will have around 40 mm tolerance for memory.
ID Cooling IS-60 EVO
IS-60 EVO ARGB is equipped with two PWM fans: one 120x120x15mm on top of the heatsink and 92x92x15mm fan down the heatsink. 5 V 3-pin ARGB lighting is applied to the 120 mm on the top.

Last but not least the package includes a tube of high cooling performance thermal grease ID-TG25 which has a 10.5 W/m-K thermal conductivity.
  • MSRP for IS-60 EVO ARGB: $46.99 USD/ 41.99€ (Excl. VAT).
  • Available date: End of Oct-Early Nov, 2020.
  • Shipments starts: End of Sep, 2020.

Well this rather interesting, I'm currently in the market for this type of cooling. L12s from Noctua is only rated for 95W, wonder how this one compares. Unfortunately I don't think I've ever seen a single ID-COOLING product in my country.

Price looks reasonable for such a cooler.

What's the point of the second fan in these designs? The only test I've ever seen done where they A/B'd the same cooler with and without a bottom fan was about ten years ago and it made no difference.

Surely, more fin surface area is better than making the air go faster over a very limited amount of surface area?

Maybe because the added AL is more $$ vs slapping a fan on it but I don't know for sure. It is a good question though.

The only difference between this and versions by other manufacturers is the aRGB fans.
This style has been around for ages.

Worthwhile to see if the cooling is good with the push pull fan config. So far, I am not a big fan of ID Cooling's product. They look good and sounds good on paper, but when you have it in your hands, the quality is not really that great. Cooling capability is also generally inflated.

Oh, you cynic, you....
You're probably right though. Plastic fans cost manufacturers next to nothing. Machine time to process and assemble metal parts is what seems to cost manufacturers the most.
