With all the numerous heatsinks and coolers that come through our hands, the ThermoEngine from Thermosonic is probably one of the most unique looking ones.  Aside from the particular name ThermoEngine, Thermosonic has actually went ahead and acquired patent pending for their particular design in about 10 countries, so the engineers over at Thermosonic must be doing something right.

   From their site, they currently have a couple of CPU coolers available.  We will be taking a look and testing out the V60-4225, the AMD Athlon 1.5GHz and Intel Pentium III 1.13GHz CPU Socket Cooler.  The V60-4225 is the exact same heatsink as the V60-4210, except that the 4225 includes a faster fan.

   We would also like to thank Crazy PC for providing us with this sample to play with.  A nice place to pick up some coolers, give Nick and them a visit : )

   Here are some key features of this worker:

  • Flexible fan replacement

  • Performance and thermal resistance: 0.56 deg C/W at 12V

  • Fan: 60 x 60 x 10mm; ball bearing; safety approvals: CE and UL

  • Clip-to-socket attach force: 19 +/- 3 lbs

   Off the bat, that is my carpet. Yes, i thought the texture looked nice as a background.  Anyway, Although the box is labeled as a 4210, it is indeed a newer version modeled v60-4225.  Difference between the two being the rated speed of the fan.  I noticed some great care and detail put into the packaging of this cooler.  There are some basic specs on the box, like the weight, thermal material, etc. of the cooler on the side of box.  Perfect for someone who may need that information for other specific purposes.

   Besides having a detailed box, the cooler was also packaged with some good styrofoam.  A nice touch to cushion any rough jolts this heatsink may receive while being shipped.  I would say any slight bend in the heatsink fins itself would probably alter the channeling of air some how.  Then again, I am probably thinking too much.

   The contents of the box include the cooler itself and a folded sheet of instructions.  One of the few manufacturers who actually include some kind of information with their product.  The other company that comes to mind is Alpha, an old timer in the cooling business.  The instructions detail installation and other precautions that should be noted while using the ThermoEngine.
