An emerging company in a wide range of computer cooling products, chassis, and peripherals, they are primed to take on the best with their latest high performance CPU cooler, the Akasa Venom. It has impressive looks, an innovative fan blade design, and lets see how impressive its cooling abilities are!
Venom, this cooler is definitely rock and roll. Venom 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 nickel plated heatpipes combined with the Viper yellow elements creates a striking combination which adds pazazz to any system. Four high capacity 8mm heatpipes with direct CPU contact provide rapid heat transfer from CPU to 45 aluminium 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.
The Smart cooler design allows for the installation of a second fan, 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.
