Expert Review

  • Summary: Unlike heatpipes which typically use water under a slight vacuum for working fluid, the Revo heatsink is slightly pressurized with a fluorocarbon called R134a. R134a has a boiling point of -26.3°C at room pressure, but in the hermetically sealed system at a slight pressure that boiling point is raised to a level more appropriate for this application.

Akasa Revo CPU Cooler

25 October 2007
  • Summary: The Akasa Revo is a unique approach to CPU cooling. As an avid user of watercooling I like the idea of a non-mechanically pumped watercooler. When running the fan in PWM mode as it is intended, the fan is very quiet and ran at only 480 RPM. On top of that, the Revo was pretty easy to work with since it is lightweight and easy to install. However, the condition of the base was disappointing, and the performance was only marginally better than the stock Intel heatsink.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Easy to install, Fan is "whisper quiet" when in PWM mode, Performance better than the stock heatsink
  • Cons: Expensive, Poor finish on the heatsink base, Performance is not as good as other similarly priced heatsinks
