Akasa Venom Voodoo Universal CPU Cooler Review

Akasa Voodoo

We were first introduced to Akasa's coolers when we tested their Venom Cooler last year.  Akasa has followed up with their Venom  Voodoo cooler, which uses the same fans, a similar tower, but a plastic tower cap and an easy-to-install out-of-the-box dual fan system.  Akasa believes they have hit a sweet spot from a price-performance standpoint, let's see what they've come up with this time.

 

Introduction

Venom Voodoo, this cooler is definitely rock and roll. Venom Voodoo delivers ultra high performance enabling serious system overclocking. The 12cm killer Viper yellow fan uses S-Flow blades providing 30% more airflow than a standard fan at the same speed. PWM function ensures quiet operation during normal system use and performance cooling under load.

The Black cover and copper heatpipes combined with the Viper yellow elements creates a striking combination which adds pazazz to any system. Six high capacity heatpipes with direct CPU contact provide rapid heat transfer from CPU to high grade aluminium profiled fins. Anti-vibration rubber fan mounting pins provide easy installation and help to eliminate a lot of fan noise. Adjustable mountings ensure full compatibility with all current AMD and Intel CPU’s.

Dual 12cm viper fans giving extreme performance in a push-pull setup where the first fan “pushes” air through the heatsink’s cooling fins, at the same time the second one “pulls” air through from the other side. The combined airflow of two 12cm fans results in more efficient heat dissipation and consequently lower CPU temperatures.
