Thermalright Archon CPU cooler reviewed

Review: Made for best performance

Today we’ll talk about Thermalright Archon CPU cooler, which launched sometime towards the end of 2010. Weighing in at 806g (without the fan and socket mounting parts) and measuring 17cm in height, Archon is a heavyweight CPU cooler with imposing tower looks and, hopefully, extraordinary performance.

The specially designed heatsink should provide improved dissipation. The package comes with Thermalright’s silent TR-TY 14cm fan and since Archon’s heatsink is 53mm wide, you can strap it with another 14cm fan in the so-called push-pull mode.

Archon’s competition in the high-end CPU cooling segment is pretty strong, but while there are many good coolers, not many stand out as being really special. So, let’s move on and see whether Archon has what it takes to stand out of the crowd.
