Introduction

We covered Kingwin's original exposed heatpipe cooler a few month back and were very impressed.  That particular unit was sized around a 92mm fan.  My favorite fan choice for CPU coolers has always been 120mm fans because of the high volume of air they move with a low sound signature.  Kingwin Technology has taken their HDT Technology (Heatpipe Direct Touch Technology) to the next level by releasing two coolers equipped with 120mm fans.  The first, the Kingwin RVT 12025 is designed with the fan perpendicular to the mainboard while the RVT 12025D has its fan orientation blowing down onto the mainboard.  A welcome thing for folks needing some airflow across hot running mainboards.  Today, we have one of each of these Kingwin coolers on the bench for an up close and personal.  If the original Kingwin RVT 9225 was any indication, we have something very nice here.  Let's get started with each in turn.

Stand Tall

The Kingwin RVT 12025 is one tall cooler at 159mm in height.  With the 120mm fan up front, you get an idea of scale almost immediately.  Turning the sink around a bit we see the tremendous amount of surface area the RVT 12025 has.  The aluminum convection fins stacked up behind the fan are absolutely massive.  The downside to all this convection area is height.  Any chassis that is cut a hair less than normal width is going to have problems.  This applies double to any case with a fan mounted in a side panel.
