ThermoLab Trinity Ultra-Quiet CPU Cooler Review



/ 5 years ago

ThermoLab may not be the first company that springs to mind when you think of a CPU cooler but that isn’t to say that they are a new company on the market. They have had a few major releases in past years including the phenomenal ThermoLab Baram which dethroned the legendary TRUE as the king of the cooling world back in 2009.

Their aim isn’t to flood the market with multiple coolers all in the same price band, but to work very hard on a particular cooler and make sure that they only have to release one which obliterates the competition. Today we will see if their latest cooler the ThermoLab Trinity lives up to the reputation its brothers have built for the brand.

The ThermoLab Trinity is a ‘standard’ design tower heatsink which fits every modern socket from Intel and AMD. It sports 4 6mm copper heatpipes positioned in a very unique orientation to offer “efficient heat exchange with minimal air resistance”. The base uses a heatpipe direct touch (H.D.T.) design to offer what ThermoLab claim is up to a huge 220W of heat dissipation. ThermoLab have decided to use a 130mm fan which can reach a maximum of 1800RPM to deliver effective airflow through the heatsink.

So is the Trinity ThermoLab’s new superstar and can it take the heat?

    Nice review, sadly if i had £35 for a cooler I would most likely buy a Cooler Master V6GT <span style="color: #3E7EB9;"> </span>

    thanks :cool:. this price category is very competitive and unfortunately, i haven't had much experience with some of the competitors such as the V6GT.I would think the Trinity would gladly hold it's own against those coolers especially after seeing it demolish the Alpenfohn Matteron which is £10 more expensive and supposed to be a very competitive cooler.

    Yeah there are alot of coolers in the £30-40 price range which if you look around it may surprised you, for example Scan.co.uk: Cogage Arrow CPU Cooler (pick up a 140mm and you got a silverarrow)

    Ye iv seen that cogage arrow and it is a great deal. Problem is that it causes so many space issues and its too tall for a lot cases. I would have been tempted to buy one a while ago otherwise :p!That is why I was so impressed with the ThermoLab cooler. it performs very well without a lot of the issues that the other good performers cause.
