Have you been looking for a new cooler for your system? Maybe you are into overclocking and know the dangers of high temperatures of your processor's core(s), or maybe you are just building a new computer for your first time and you want something that is going to be silent or cool well. What ever your reason for needing a cooler for your processor, Thermolab may just have the solution you are looking for with their Baram CPU Cooler. This cooler is not only designed to work for the Socket 775 processors, but the AMD side of things as well, so no matter what system you have, this cooler may just work for you. I am interested to see how well this cooler is going to work when it is compared to the others that are out on the market.
Thermolab has always used very simplistic packaging, this idea makes the package look more professional and less like something that you would find as a cheap knock off brand. The Thermolab Baram CPU Cooler is packaged in a brown cardboard box that has very little writing on it, just the information that you are going to need to know, such as the brand name, Thermolab, and the cooler's name which is Baram. Under the Thermolab logo on the top of the box, you are going to see their company slogan, which reads "Effective Thermal Management Solution", giving you the impression that this cooler is going to be a great solution to your thermal problems, such as heat on the processor. When you take a look at the two sides that have print on them, you are going to see that this cooler was made in Korea, which is where Thermolab is based out of. The name Baram is actually a Korean word that means "air flow", this is proudly displayed on one of the sides. This will also give you the impression that the Thermolab Baram CPU Cooler will be able to perform quite well. The final side is where you are going to find the specifications for the Baram Cooler, such as the dimensions and the socket types that it was built for.
When you open up the package and remove all of the items that come in it, you are going to see that there is quite a large amount of accessories that came with the Thermolab Baram CPU Cooler. The Baram cooler itself is wrapped up nice and tight in a plastic bag to keep it from obtaining any scratches from the accessories during the shipping process .
As I mentioned before, the Thermolab Baram CPU Cooler has a few different accessories that comes with it, included in the package is a tube of thermal paste, just in case you do not have any laying around, or if you wish to use their thermal paste that has been supplied to you. There also are four fan clips to clip a 120mm fan on either side of the Baram cooler in a push-pull configuration. The Baram cooler has been setup as a multi platform cooler, which means that there are two different types of backing plates as well as mounting hardware. The one on the left is the Intel LGA775 mounting hardware and backing plate while the one on the right is for the AMD sockets.
Now that we know what the Thermolab Baram CPU Cooler has packaged inside of its plain brown box, I am curious to see what the cooler actually looks like.
