Gigabyte Xtreme Gaming XTC700 CPU Cooler Review

While many enthusiasts love their water cooling setups, there’s still a lot of love out their for air cooling. Even here at eTeknix we have most of our rigs running on air coolers, such as the Noctua NH-D15, and they’ll run circles around many of the AIO coolers on the market, and they’ll run quieter too. Gigabyte knows this, and that’s why they’ve set out to create their own high-end air cooler, which not only promises great cooling performance, but also quiet acoustics and a competitive.

The XTC700 comes well equipped, with dual 120mm PWM fans, which feature a unique blade design for optimal cooling/acoustic performance. The big star of the show, however, is the cooling tower, which packs in three extra thick 10mm heat pipes, giving the cooler a max TDP in excess of 200W! Add to that the custom top plate, RGB lighting and support for all major modern sockets, and you’ve got enough reasons to get excited about what this cooler can do.

DUAL 120MM 2 BALL BEARING PWM FANS

Attached 2 big 120mm PWM fans to each side of the heat-sink, will efficiently dissipate the heat from the CPU at a very low noise level. PWM function provides the accurate and efficient fan speed for the CPU, to optimize the noise reduction and the thermal performance. GIGABYTE patented blade fan design increases the airflow by 23%. And moreover, the 2 ball bearing structure will provide longer and more stable lifespan

120MM UNIQUE BLADE FAN DESIGN

The 120mm dynamic adjusting fan provides the silent operation. The airflow is spilt by the triangle fan edge, and guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface, effectively enhancing the airflow by 23% over the traditional fans.

DOUBLE BALL BEARING STRUCTURE

The double ball bearing structure has better heat endurance and efficiency than sleeve structure. Hence it will provide longer life time.

    Many PC enthusiasts are starting to understand that AIO / CLCs have a lot of negatives and few positive. A quality HSF offers incomparable reliability and almost silent cooling with a well engineered tower style cooler. These high end tower coolers not only perform better than similar priced or even more expensive AIO / CLCs, the tower coolers are often more quiet and they never leak coolant to damage mobos, GPUs and other hardware. This Gigabyte HSF is on the top of my list for a new Ryzen 7 1800X AM4 build.
