    The third member in Antec's KÜHLER series of CPU coolers has come to like, following KÜHLER Shelf and KÜHLER Flow. The new KÜHLER is called "Box", and sports a dual aluminum fin tower design that places it on top of Antec's catalogue. The design consists of a CPU base and heatsink, from which eight copper heat pipes convey heat to two aluminum fin blocks. Between the two blocks is a 120 mm PWM-controlled fan that circulates air. The cooler measures 148 (H) x 122 (W) x 120 (D) mm, weighing all of 1.2 kg (2.65 lbs). It supports all current CPU socket types, including LGA1366, LGA1156, AM3, and LGA775. It is priced at US $66.

    FYI, "KÜHLER" means "cooler" in German. It's as if German has become the new French for Antec's marketing department :laugh:

    Seems like it will be able to Küll (lol) very well the most hot processors, but weighing 1.2Kg makes it only for benches or anyone that has the motherboard in a horizontal position. Even with a sturdy backplate I can see the mobo bending.

    Antec bought this "box" from Dynatron. It is a dynatron G950.

    That's not unusual, a lot of the same heatsinks are sold all over the globe under different companies or names.
