Continuing our series of CPU cooler reviews, today we tested Thermaltake TMG IA1, which uses the now classical tower design with U-shaped heatpipes, using a fancy shape on the heatsink fins. Will this design be translated into higher performance? Check it out!
TMG IA1 box looks quite alike BigTyp 14Pro box, with a transparent window that allows you to see part of the cooler.
Inside the box we found the cooler itself, user manuals, installation hardware, a small bag of thermal paste and a sticker for your case.
The cooler is big and heavy. The fins are very firm and the general aspect is of a very well-made cooler.
TMG IA1 fan has 120 mm in diameter and is made of transparent plastic. In the base of the fan there are three blue LEDs. An interesting detail is the fact the fan has no frame, which is not good in most cases because the airflow tends to spread, but with this cooler this seems to be a good idea because the heatsink fins involve the fan.
