Thermalright Venomous X CPU Cooler aims for the high end once again

You can trace back the high end of the cooling market to precious few companies, most notably Thermalright, who went all-out in their pursuit for performance and well a bit of the design flair what with all of that fancy nickel plating they indulge in.

The Thermalright Venomous X CPU Cooler is another attempt at taking the high-end air-cooling crown for the company and it puts up some impressive numbers along the way. VortezHardware has the review:

The Venomous X can only be described by one word, and that’s “Beastly”. It is quite distinctive in design from the Ultra Extreme in that the Venomous X uses a different fin design and the arrangement of the heat pipes is more linear at the top rather than in a circular pattern. As mentioned earlier, it is a few mms narrower than the Thermolab Baram but the extra heat pipe should give it the advantage. The whole heatsink is nickel plated to protect against corrosion, enabling a much longer life span. The construction is a combination of copper for the base and aluminium for the fins, ensuring the best heat conductivity without adding on too much weight.

If you’re looking for a high end cooler for that new CPU of yours you can’t do much better.
