 ThermalTake has become quite the one-stop shop for all things cooling and modding.  They recently released their newest heatsink unit, the Silent Boost.  There is a good reason why they named it the Silent Boost, lets take a look...

   Some specs from TT:

A1889

82x70x49 mm

0.13A
Power Input
1.56W
Fan Speed
245010% RPM
Max Air Flow
27.5 CFM
Air Pressure
25.97 Pa-min
Noise
21 dBA
Bearing Type
Hydro Wave Bearing
Life Time
50,000 hours
Connector
3 PIN

   If you have ever used a TT cooler, you probably know they aren't the quietest.  They've gotten better with the newest revisions of the Volcano line, allowing you to adjust fan speeds and whatnot.  However, that is just a chore to have to adjust it every time you want to listen to music, watch a video, etc.  So in comes the Silent Boost, clocking in at only 21 dBA and a max airflow of 27.5CFM.

   The clip design uses the 3 prongs of the CPU socket.  Helps greatly reduces movement while attached to your CPU.

   The heatsink itself utilizes thin fins to optimize heat dissipation.  A shroud covers the top of the heatsink, which is where the new Silent Boost fan sits on.

   If you notice on the last picture, the fan itself has a vented design for its housing.  This is supposed to draw air from all directions to aid in cooling, as well as eliminate noise that is usually trapped within there by the spinning blades.
