OCZ has announced yet another CPU cooler, the OCZ Vendetta. The cooler features distinctive, highly efficient heat pipe and fin design, and can fit most new sockets. It has a folded "V" shape that adds some surface area without compromising the compact design.
The new OCZ Vendetta uses the mention distinctive heat pipe and fin design developed by Xigmatek. Interesting thing is that Vendetta isn't using the standard solid base plate design. The base of Vendetta is actually those three heatpipes which are making direct contact with the processor so the heat transfer should be the fastest one around. The new "dimple" micro configuration of the stacked aluminum fins adds turbulences which ensures that the fins are also rapidly cooled.
The new Vendeta comes with a "ultra-quiet" fan with anti vibration rubber connectors. The fan is 92mm in size and spins from 1200 to 2800 RPM and creating from 39 to 54.6 CFMs of airflow. Noise level is rated from 22 to 34 dBA. The heat sink measures at (L)97 x (W)79 x (H)134mm and has three copper heat pipes and the entire cooler comes with one year warranty. It can be fitted on the AMD 754/755/939/AM2 and Intel LGA775 sockets.
