Thermaltake has again released another cooling solution for the NVIDIA GeForce 4 graphics cards. Thermaltake has been very popular in the computing industry providing cooling solutions for all different type of computer hardware. They make cooling products for hard drives, memory, CPUs, graphics cards, etc. their most popular item was the Volcano 7+ CPU cooler. Recently they started selling power supplies and cases too.
Today we are going to look at the latest graphics cooler from Thermaltake. This cooler is very similar to the GeForce 4 Highest Performance Cooler that we reviewed before. The only real difference is that this cooler has a blue LED that has been mounted on to the clear plastic that covers part of the heat sink. Since it is virtually the same exact cooler, you can refer back to the other review to see how well it performs but in this review installation, looks, etc. will be examined.

The cooler comes in a plastic box containing everything that is needed for the modification. Included with the copper cooler are some aluminum ram sinks for all the memory chips on the graphics card, thermal compound, double sided thermal tape, and some power connectors for the fan and the LED.
The heat sink is all copper and is very nice crafted. There were no dents, nicks, or scratches anywhere on it. The RAM sinks are made out of aluminum. They are a nice edition to this kit since they will help to keep the memory cool and possibly allow for higher overclocking. There are two separate power connects that are needed to use the cooler and the LED. The cooler uses a 3-pin connection but Thermaltake has provided a 3 to 4 pin connector for convenience since you can plug it directly to the power supply. The LED uses a 4-pin power connector.
