With so many different processors, all having their own thermal limits, finding a heatsink that will keep your precious part cool and still have the ability to push it beyond the limits can be tedious and overwhelming. You need a cooler that does its job well, and can be versatile should you change your setup down the road. One company that has been in the cooling industry for some time and has pushed out excellent products is Thermaltake. Thermaltake has produced many coolers for quite a few years. Now, with new engineering concepts, they bring you the Thermaltake ISGC series coolers. ISGC stands for Inspiration of Silent Gaming Cooling, which basically means better cooling products with less noise output. Today we are going to be taking a look at the ISGC-300 cooler, so sit back and enjoy.
The Thermaltake ISGC-300 comes in a sleek black box with a picture of the cooler, as well as "Zoe," one of Thermaltake's mascots. The front of the box also tells what ISGC stands for and has some of its features listed. The back of the packaging has some more product photos, and also points out some of the more specific features. On the side of the box there is a list of its specifications and features, and also gives you a list of the Sockets the Thermaltake ISGC-300 is compatible with - including Socket 775, AM2+, and the newer AM3 and i7 Socket 1336 setups.
When you slide out the inner packaging, you get a first look at the new ISGC fan design. This design allows for improved airflow and reduced noise for better cooling. Included with the cooler are the instructions, a Thermaltake case badge, and the hardware to mount the cooler to all current Sockets, including AM2, AM2+, AM3, LGA 775, and LGA 1336. There is also a back plate included for the AMD sockets to help offload the stress of the board around the socket.
Now that the cooler is out, let's take a better look at the design.
