Summary: Though obviously unable to live up to its "silent" billing, the Thermalright Venomous X Silent Edition comes as close as an CPU heatsink can to this claim without resorting to passive cooling.
Summary: There really isn’t anything simple you can do to improve cooler performance. Most of the issues are in the engineering of the base, from the heat pipes to the contact surface. In the case of all of our test coolers, a better fan can and has actually helped but at the cost of more noise.
Pros: High quality construction and materials, Convex copper base, Ships with two 120mm cooling fans, Simple, unique Pressure Adjustable mounting system, No tools required, Top notch performance cooler
Summary: Thermalright is a name that has been synonymous with enthusiast-level air cooling for quite a while now. Their venerable Ultra 120 Extreme (aka the TRUE) has won accolades and was once the favorite high end air cooler among overclockers worldwide.
Summary: With the Venomous-X, Thermalright brings a very good cooler to the market. It's diverse, will mount on pretty much any Intel processor and definitely is capable of dealing with a hot and sweaty processor alright!
Summary: The heir to the famous Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme is not very different from its predecessor, but nevertheless, we managed to discover at least one significant distinguishing feature. Read more in our review.
Conclusion: It’s tough at the top; a phrase that applies as much heatsinks and computer components as any other field. Following up on a product as dominant as the TRUE was always going to be tough, especially considering the high quality competition that’s emerged in the last few years.
Summary: Needless to say we were impressed with the Thermalright Venomous-X, as it set a new record on our test bed for air-coolers. Prior to testing the Venomous-X, the coolest we have been able to get our overclocked Core i7 processor with an ambient room temperature of 21 degrees was 65 degrees when under...
Conclusion: Taken as a whole we enjoyed working with the Thermalright Venomous-X due to the fact that it offers excellent performance coupled with an almost idiot-proof installation procedure. It may not be a perfect fit for all people and every situation but it is a very, very good choice for many.
Summary: Beim Venomous X geht Thermalright teilweise neue Wege, teilweise behalten Sie aber auch ihre alten SÃ¼nden bei. Bei der Verpackung hat sich der Stil leicht geÃ¤ndert, statt bekanntem Braun ist man zu Schwarz gewechselt, schlicht geblieben ist die Verpackung dennoch.
Pros: bietet Platz fÃ¼r bis zu zwei LÃ¼fter, sichere und einfache Montage, sehr gute Verarbeitung, gute bis sehr gute Testergebnisse
Cons: kein LÃ¼fter im Lieferumfang enthalten, keine Halterung fÃ¼r AMD-System beiliegend
Conclusion: Thermalright Venomous X - Fazit Auch wenn der Thermalright Venomous X nicht so giftig ist, wie er impliziert, so kann er sich doch in Sachen Kühlleistung in den unteren Lüfterspannungsbereichen sehr gut behaupten. Lobenswert ist vor allem das Montagekit für die Sockel 775, 1156 und 1366.
