AeroCool Intros Raven 4 ARGB Cooler

AeroCool today introduced the Raven 4 ARGB, a tower-type CPU cooler that relies on a custom design 120 mm fan. The cooler uses a typical aluminium fin-stack heatsink design. Four 6 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes make direct contact with the CPU at the base, conveying heat through the aluminium fin-stack. This is ventilated by the 120 mm fan, with a unique frame design that guides airflow such that it envelopes the fin-stack along all sides.

The fan takes in a 4-pin PWM connection for its main function, and 3-pin ARGB for its lighting. The fan turns at speeds ranging between 900 to 1,800 RPM, pushing 24.1 to 58 CFM of airflow, with a noise output ranging between 18 to 27 dBA. The fan uses a hydraulic bearing rated for 60,000 hours. The cooler measures 125 mm x 80 mm x 135 mm (WxDxH). Among the CPU socket types supported are LGA1700, LGA1200, LGA115x, and AM4.

I would have commended it for being a unique design, but Thermalright already has the Silver Soul 135 as of this year. Basically the same thing (custom 120mm fan on a 135mm tall cooler, aiming to bridge 92mm and 120mm tower performance), but better in basically every way being a dual tower + proper mounting system + proper coldplate + 6 heatpipes.

And the SS135 performs about exactly as well as its 135mm height suggests, so I'm guessing this Aerocool competitor had better be $20 or it'll just be another generic 92mm tower with a proprietary fan slapped on it. There are also a handful of other Thermalrights that are the same as this one (92mm cooler with 120mm fan), safe to say they are handily outperformed by the SS135.
