Excerpt: I had high hopes for Thermaltake's ISGC-300 cooler. I liked the design and it was very easy to install on the 775 platform, although the mobo may have to be removed for installation, even for AMD users.
Excerpt: The ISGC-300 from Thermaltake is the biggest of the five coolers under this series. The ISGC-300 is based heavily on the commonly used tower design. Granted the tower arrangement offers the best cooling to date when it comes to air and the ISGC-300 should fall in there with this belief. But what else the cooler offer is a new take on fan and fan blades. All new fan motor and redesign blades is what the ISGC series is all about. And we get to take our first look at one.
Excerpt: Everyone and their CPU-cooler-manufacturing mother are jumping aboard the skyscraper-formfactor bandwagon, hoping to match the performance of Thermalright’s Ultra-120 eXtreme and Noctua’s NH-U12P air coolers. Last month we tested Zalman’s attempt , and this month we have Thermaltake’s answer, the ISGC-300, one of a series of four ISGC-branded air coolers recently released into the wild.
Pros: Easy to install; quiet, variable-speed fan; good performance; competitively priced.
Cons: Bulky; can interfere with RAM cooling if installed facing upward.
Summary: The first Thermaltake ISGC series cooler we reviewed,
, showed a poor performance. The
, by its turn, brought a fairly good efficiency. Now, the ISGC-300 we review proved to be one of the best coolers we have tested so far. With the fan at full speed its performance is excellent, fighting with the best performance coolers we have reviewed, while keeping a good noise level.
Summary: The new ISGC line from Thermaltake is a bit of a change from previous Orb and Typhoon series of coolers, and from what we saw with the ISGC-300 cooler, it looks like it could be a popular choice. Thermaltake has long been known for coming out with some really good coolers over the years, and this is yet another cooler to add to their collection.
Pros: Good Performance, High Quality Construction, Intel LGA 775, i7, and AMD Compatible, Quiet, Competitive MSRP
Excerpt: Today we got a chance to check out the Thermaltake ISGC-300, the third of four Thermaltake ISGC CPU Coolers. Its tall, yet narrow design allows for plenty of airflow and an easy of installation. Supporting the latest CPU’s, the ISGC-300 provides a powerful cooling method which can be easily adjusted between low and high speed settings. Read on further to see how well it performed in comparison with the ISGC-100 and ISGC-200.
Excerpt: I get quite a few coolers to test that pass over my desk. Most of these coolers follow the basic tower design and heatpipes of various quantities and diameters that remove the heat either by directly touching the IHS of the CPU, or removing it from an aluminum or copper base. What soon follows after the design is to start looking at a sufficient cooling mechanism or a high CFM fan in most instances.
Conclusion: Overall, the Thermaltake ISGC-300 is a good product, mostly designed for gamers who wish silent operation and decent performance. Adding a second fan would further boost performance, but will also have an impact on the product's overall cost. The competition is very tough in this category of CPU coolers and a lower price would make this product even more attractive.
Cons: The Installed 120mm fan is not that powerful to give absolute performance, A bit pricey
Excerpt: Elegir el disipador adecuado a nuestro sistema no es siempre una tarea fácil en un mercado inundado de propuestas que, siendo francos, no siempre cumplen nuestras expectativas. Consideraciones como sonoridad, caudal de aire, materiales en los que está realizado el disipador, etc han de ser primordiales a la hora de hacer nuestra elección.
Cons: Thermaltake es una marca que ya lleva 10 años diseñando y fabricando disipadores, aunando funcionalidad, diseño y prestaciones. En esta ocasión tenemos para análisis uno de sus nuevos modelos, el, Thermaltake ISGC 300, ., Se ha usado como disipador de control el Scythe Zipang. A su vez, se han hecho dos mediciones, una con el ventilador a bajas revoluciones (800 rpm) y otra a altas revoluciones (1400 rpm); el ventilador del Zipang se ha mantenido constante de revoluci...
