So, you are a gamer like me who has been playing on PCs for a while but you have always noticed that you have the volume turned up so loud your family members complain, all so you can drown out the airplane like sound emanating from your computer case. It seems like no matter what we do to sound proof or reduce the noise levels in the case, we always have to resort to the volume knob being turned up. I know for me it has been a frustrating experience getting enough cooling out of my system components without raising the levels of noise to the commonly annoying levels. The question always on my mind, and others like me is, how can I make this quieter?
It seems that in most cases, the biggest culprit to noise contributions has been the GPU and the CPU heatsink. More recently, though, the GPU has gotten quieter, leaving the CPU cooler to stand alone as the source of our system’s noise pollution. As the years have passed and I have been through several systems, I have always seemed to wonder when one of the companies out there would develop a decent performing yet quiet CPU cooler for gaming. It seems that the answer may have finally arrived.
The Thermaltake ISGC-300 cooler is an aluminum heatsink with 4 copper heatpipes. The Thermaltake ISGC-300 also features a quiet fan for cool airflow. In addition, the Thermaltake ISCG-300 also makes use of platform compatibility by allowing installation on Intel LGA 775 and 1366 sockets, as well as AMD AM3/AM2+/AM2 sockets, for added versatility.
