Thermaltake V1AX Heatsink


Thermaltake has always been a big name in the enthusiast computer market. Today we will be looking at a new heatsink from Thermaltake with multi directional air intake and a unique quad heatpipe design. The Thermaltake V1AX combines aluminum, copper, and a quiet fan to replace your stock heatsink. Letís see if it can handle the heat of an overclocked i7 920.
