Thermaltake Max ORB EX

Thermaltake MaxOrb EX

Legion Hardware
20 July 2008
  • Summary: So far pricing for the Thermaltake MaxOrb EX is not available, though we expect it to be quite pricey given that it is largely made up of copper. This combined with the sheer size of the heatsink means that the MaxOrb EX weighs just under 600 grams.
