Silent PC
14 May 2011
  • 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. As the included fans spin at a meager 600 RPM and employ fluid bearings, they are exceedingly quiet, being effectively inaudible even in our anechoic chamber. They also perform surprisingly well on the Venomous X, giving our reference Nexus 120 mm fans a run for their money.

Thermalright Venomous X CPU Cooler Review

23 May 2010
  • 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. However, since we tested the lot based on their retail stock configurations, none of the performance scores were added to the results. It wouldn’t have been fair.
  • 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
  • Cons: Needs some performance looking flare

Thermalright Venomous X Review

29 March 2010
  • Excerpt: 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. In recent times, the TRUE has fallen behind a little bit. While still one of the top air coolers, it’s not quite standing alone on the podium as it once was.

Thermalright Venomous-X review

The Guru of 3D

  • 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! We feel the Venomous-X is a good match to the Noctua NH-D14 Premium in terms of performance, yet a whole lot smaller. The thing is though, Noctua and pretty much any brand out there delivers their coolers with at the very least one fan.

  • 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.

  • 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 load.

  • 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.

Thermalright Venomous X

14 June 2010
  • Conclusion: Beim Venomous X geht Thermalright teilweise neue Wege, teilweise behalten Sie aber auch ihre alten Sünden bei. Bei der Verpackung hat sich der Stil leicht geändert, statt bekanntem Braun ist man zu Schwarz gewechselt, schlicht geblieben ist die Verpackung dennoch. Das was die Verpackung jedoch machen soll, den Kühler während des Transportes schützen macht sie gut.
  • Pros: bietet Platz für bis zu zwei Lüfter, sichere und einfache Montage, sehr gute Verarbeitung, gute bis sehr gute Testergebnisse
  • Cons: kein Lüfter im Lieferumfang enthalten, keine Halterung für AMD-System beiliegend

10 June 2010
  • Summary: Finitions impeccables, nouveau système de fixation amélioré et performance de haut vol, voilà ce qui caractérise ce nouveau ventirad Thermalright, et nous n'en attendions pas moins. Par contre, avouons quand même que nous avons été un peu décus sur quelques points. Tout d'abord, le Venomous-X n'est pas vraiment nouveau, il est une évolution logique des Ultra.
  • Pros: Performance, Finition, Montage facile et solide, Backplate pratique, 2 x 120 mm possible
  • Cons: Prix, Réglage pression peu précis

Thermalright Venomous X

31 May 2010
  • 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. Negativ fällt dagegen der, durch die Vernickelung verursachte, vergleichsweise hohe Preis der Bulk-Version ohne Lüfter von derzeit knapp unter 55 Euro auf. Die Version inkl.
