From the Thermalright website:
Since the establishment of the brand in 2001, Thermalright has been dedicated to engineering professional computer cooling solutions for more than a decade. We have set many standards in the cooling industry which are still widely implemented today, and have been the leading brand that others tend to follow and imitate. Quality and performance are the very goals Thermalright pursues. By improving product details and consumer experiences, we provide products that stand out in both quality and performance to our users.
Thermalright is well known for their exceptional coolers and their top-notch quality. Given those two key aspects, it is no wonder they became enthusiast favorites and gained a healthy following. They don't stop at CPU coolers either as they offer cooling products for video cards, memory, mosfet, and even game consoles.
With the likes of the Silver Arrow SB-E, HR22, AXP 200, and Macho series of coolers, Thermalright has something for everyone when it comes to keeping their CPU cool. From heavyweight behemoths to low-profile, ITX friendly designs, customers have no shortage of selection. Such an exceptional range of products and a willingness to improve on already solid designs has helped keep Thermalright in the minds of do-it-yourself PC enthusiasts the world over.
With that said, in today's review, I look at Thermalright's Silver Arrow ITX. Based on the already popular Silver Arrow, the ITX version utilizes a few less heatpipes and features a single fan along with a slight redesign of the two cooling towers. These changes allow for better compatibility at the expense of top-tier performance. Still, the Silver Arrow ITX looks promising on paper so let's dig a little deeper and see what it has on offer!
