Performance CPU cooler by X2. Following the award winning TherMax series CPU Coolers by our parent company Spire, the enthusiasts at X2 have further developed and improved the product's performance. Introducing the successor; Eclipse IV universal compatible performance CPU cooler.

Starting with the heat-sink, 45 aluminum stacked fins provide a larger surface area. The front and rear sides of the fins are patterned with shark-teeth for better outflow of air which helps to a more silent solution. Six (6) all copper heat-pipes of 6mm in diameter which are bend into the tower u-shape to achieve unrestricted air-flow and best cooling performance. All six (6) heat-pipes are soldered onto the heat spreader-base and cooling fins. Following the complete heat-sink is anodized and coated with pure nickel which fills any tiny imperfections and preserves the copper heat-pipes from oxidation.



Asymmetrical heat-sink design which ensures sufficient clearance in the direction of memory slots and RAM height clearance. Topped with two proprietary Nano-tech bearing 120x25mm high airflow DC Fans which are mounted with anti-vibe rubber corners and metal wire clips. Secure mounting with the robust H-bracket, application to all current AMD and Intel sockets and micro-processors (LGA1366, LGA1156, LGA1155, LGA1150, LGA775, AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2) and supplied with grade-A Thermica SP431 thermal grease that provides best contact ratio and outstanding reliability.

Main Features:
  • 45 wide aluminum heat-sink fins
  • 6 all copper heat-pipes, 6mm in diameter
  • U-shape tower, unrestricted air-flow
  • All black-nickel coated, preserve from oxidation
  • Asymmetrical heat-sink design, ensuring RAM clearance
  • 2 proprietary Nano-tech bearing 120x25mm DC Fans
  • Anti-vibe rubber fan corners with metal wire mounting-clips
  • Robust H-bracket, secure and universal socket application
  • Including grade-A Thermica SP431 thermal grease
  • Best cooling performance up to 200W TDP
  • Backed by 2 year manufacturer service warranty
MSRP: USD 59.95 / EURO 44.95 (Ex VAT if applicable).

Those look like propeller blades...

No Socket 2011? I guess that Max 200W TDP is true tho...

I would like to see bigger heatpipes with less total count .
As 6-8 heatpipes the end ones are not over the core .
if they used 6mm x6 heatpipes I like to see 5x 8mm ones , to see if that helps .

Seems that works better for GPU, there moving to bigger pipes 8-10mm now .

The ECLIPSE IV is Intel LGA 2011 processor compatible.. Yes.. and 200 Watts of cooling is not equal the wattage shown on the processor box. It is wattage for constant total 100% Wattage constant. If you do that kind of computing your need water anyway... Most computers only use 20% of processing power under normal conditions anyway.


While the Heat Pipes may be 6mm there are 6 pipes there. The "be quiet! Shadow Rock 2" has 4 X 8mm pipes and is only rated at 180 Watts. Constant. So this one is better. by design.

"X2 Eclipse IV can cool down CPUs with TDP of up to 220W and supports all modern sockets - Intel LGA775, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1150, LGA1366, LGA2011 and AMD AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2, FM2+ sockets. It comes with Thermica SP431 thermal compound. Cooler is backed by 5 year warranty.Source: "DGX Tech - Hardware News and Reviews
