Thermaltake Toughair 310 CPU Cooler Review
Mike Sanders / 2 weeks ago
Like many of their ‘Tough’ branded products, the Thermaltake Toughair 310 takes a predominantly black and silver approach with its packaging that is certainly distinctive and eye-catching from their usual fare. Unlike many other brands who go for black, however, Thermaltake has ensured the correct level of contract, so you get a nice clear and surprisingly bold image of the cooler itself front and centre.
Despite the relatively small stature of the Toughair 310 packaging (because this is not a big cooler), Thermaltake has done well to pack a lot of useful information into the relatively small space. To the rear, you’re given the products’ main features and a surprisingly large number of images.
Additionally, the sides have also not been wasted, with the main highlight being the full technical specifications presented in a fantastic large size. Overall, Thermaltake has done exceptionally well on the presentational front with so little to work with.
The accessories for the Thermaltake Toughair 310 are, by air cooler standards, surprisingly light, with you seemingly not having that many individual parts. We can assure you, regardless of whether your motherboard is Intel or AMD-based, you have everything you need here to ensure this can get fitted to your processor.
Thermaltake provides you with some thermal paste and an application grid and spatula in something of mild curiosity. This is unusual because, more often than not, in these instances, the thermal grease comes pre-applied to the contact plate. We will, however, go into more detail regarding this in the ‘installation’ part of this review.
