Thermalright V1 Ultra

7 December 2005
  • Summary: The Thermalright V1 Ultra delivers excellent cooling performance, even when the fan is running slow. Good cooling performance does not mean that it is loud, the fan noise is very acceptable. What I really didn't like was the complex installation, but you have to be a bit patient with Thermalright. They are a new player in the VGA cooling business and their products sure seem to be able to compete with the best of the competition.
  • Pros: Awesome performance, Quiet, Wide compatibility, Fan can be changed
  • Cons: Horrible installation, May need some rework/longer screws, Does not connect to video card fan output, Expensive

Expert Review

22 January 2006
  • Summary: Malgré le savoir faire en matière de refroidissement de Thermalright, nous n'avons pas du tout été séduits par ce produit. Trop de défauts masquent ses qualités. Tout d'abord sa compatibilité pose problème. Certains modèles de cartes graphiques ne peuvent pas l'accueillir. Le même problème se pose avec les dissipateurs pour mémoires, qui, sur notre modèle, furent impossible à monter. Enfin, que dire des heatpipes qui rentrent en contact avec la porte...
  • Pros: Legèreté, Refroissement Gpu, Silence de fonctionnement, faible encombrement
  • Cons: Montage difficile, Incompatibilité, Prix
