Introduction

Cooling Intel's Prescott CPU has never been easy. For quite some time, the only cooling option available was the stock Intel heatsink. Even now, after almost six months, after market air cooling options for the LGA775 are still a bit scarce. Today, we get the chance to check out our very first LGA775 cooler, the Silent 775 from Thermaltake. Built with heatpipe technology and sporting a 90mm fan, I'm anxious to see how well it cools my overclocked 2.8 CPU so let's get cracking.

Specifications:

  • Application: Intel P4 LGA775 Prescott

  • Dimensions: Heatsink - 82.6 x 76 x 45 mm
                     Fan - 90 x 90 x 25 mm

  • Fan Speed: 2500 RPM

  • Air Flow: 42.9 CFM @ 21 dBA

  • Weight: 552 gms

  • Material: Copper base w/Aluminum fins

  • Spring screw with safety plate mounting system

  • Dual copper heatpipes

The Cooler

The heatsink itself is a fairly simple design coupled with a few features that are noteworthy. The first of these is the fan. 

  

Thermaltake chose to use a funneled design which allowed them to mount a 90mm fan without taking up much more space than a standard 80mm. This design also allows the air to be funneled more directly over the center of the heatsink for better direct airflow where it's needed.
