Thermaltake Blue Orb II CPU Cooler Review

9 February 2006
  • Conclusion: I was surprised by the ability of the Thermaltake Blue Orb II CPU Cooler. Despite being somewhat louder than the Zalman heatsink, it easily trumped it in cooling ability. The slightly longer fins and perhaps larger copper core may have contributed to the success.
  • Pros: Simple and well documented installation, Efficient cooler, Very cool blue theme, Effective for motherboard cooling
  • Cons: Heavy, Can be loud and offers no fan speed control options

PC Modding Malaysia
29 October 2005
  • Conclusion: Being one of the heaviest CPU coolers tested here, the Blue Orb II is unlike anything we have seen. Thermaltake made the Blue Orb II stand out from the crowd by adding blue LED fans to the cooler to match it with the blue aluminium fins on the heatsink.
  • Pros: Silent, Blue coloured heatsink, Decent performance, Blue LED fan, Great value
  • Cons: No fan speed controller, Heavy, Issues with certain motherboards, May block memory slots, Not for overclockers

Thermaltake Blue Orb II

20 September 2005
  • Summary: The Thermaltake Blue Orb II is a great high-performance cooler. Its big heat dissipating area makes it a good cooler for overclockers who don't want to spend too much money on the heatsink. Not only does it cool well, it is also suprising quiet when delivering its cooling performance.
  • Pros: Great performance, Very affordable, Quiet, Supports both S939 and LGA775, Easy to install, Nice design, Blue LEDs in fan
  • Cons: No fan speed control, Little space near memory area on some motherboards, Does not fit ABIT AL8/AA8XE easily, Heavy

  • Pros: Good thermal reduction
  • Cons: Installation
