Thermaltake ISGC-200 CPU Cooler Review

Introduction
Hardware Secrets Bronze Award

This time we reviewed Thermaltake ISGC-200 CPU cooler, which uses the same fan of ISGC-100 but has a completely different design, with heatsinks making "sandwiching" the fan. Will its performance be better than its "little brother"?

ISGC-200 box is visually similar to ISGC-100's, but a little bit bigger. It also brings the picture of a virtual redhead (that looks very much like the ATI poster girl) holding a huge sword similar to Final Fantasy. Thermaltake says that this girl's name is Zoe, "goddess of victory", and she is a computer programmer who lives in a Peruvian amazon village and has as mission to use her powers to protect a magic stone. No, we didn't understand what this story has to do with CPU coolers. Actually, the ancient Greek goddess of victory was named Nike (yes, the sportswear brand took her name). Hardware Secrets is also culture.

Inside the box, there is the cooler itself, installation hardware, a little white thermal compound bag, user manuals and a case sticker.

ISGC-200 is a tower-design CPU cooler, with three U-shaped heatpipes connecting the cooler base to two aluminum heatsinks. The fan stays between these heatsinks, attached to one of them with two metal clips.

The heatpipes ends are protected by plastic caps. These heatpipes are well spaced on the heatsink for better heat distribution.
