-- ThermalTake Blue Orb Chip Cooler
-- Price: $10.00 USD
-- 12.10.2000
-- By: GideonX
-- Page: 1 2 3

To start off, the blue orb will block off one PCI slot that is directly under the AGP slot. Not a big deal considering the amount of PCI slots on motherboards lately. We test the cooler by calculating the temperature difference between the stock heatsink and the blue orb.

The results produced by the Blue Orb is rather astounding! In addition to a 9 degree celcius drop in temperature, the GF2 MX overclocked to even higher! The Memory/Core overclocked from a previously attempt of 200/200Mhz to 205/210! A good 39/35Mhz overclock!

In conclusion, if you need a very good and economical chipset cooler, the blue orb is it! No wonder so many people are raving about it, at $12.50 there is no other contender out there!

Thanks again to SubzeroPC for providing us with a testing sample!
