We had already reviewed two coolers from Thermaltake's ISGC series: ISGC-100 and ISGC-200, both with 92-mm fans. This time we tested ISGC-300, which uses a tower design with four U-shaped heatpipes and a 120 mm fan. Will it perform better than the other models from this series?

ISGC-300 box has the same graphic design from its little brothers, but is remarkably bigger.

Inside the box we found the cooler with the fan (already installed), manuals, installation hardware, a gray thermal compound tube and a sticker for your case.

In Figure 3 you can take a look at the front part from ISGC-300. It resembles other tower coolers, like Akasa Nero and Noctua U12P.

Viewing the cooler from its side we can see its four copper heatpipes and the fan, which is attached to the heatsink by two wire clips.

An amazing detail is the fact that you can install another fan (not included) on ISGC-300, improving airflow. Unfortunately, Thermaltake did not included extra clips to attach this fan.
