Thermaltake BigTyp Revo CPU Cooler: Conclusion
Where to begin? The Thermaltake BigTyp Revo has an interesting name, a classic design, and fairly good performance for the price. At $38 to your door it's extremely hard to find faults here! It is both far more quiet than a stock cooler and offers far superior cooling performance. While it doesn't match the auditory bliss of a low-profile Noctua cooler, it does nothing to offend my (admittedly picky) ears when running in daily use even when overclocked. At 100% speed the fan is audible but not obnoxious at all. Installation is a breeze with nary a glance at the instruction manual.
So how do I sum up this fairly low-profile cooler? In short, if you're in the market for an easy to install and inexpensive cooler that's capable of handling a modest overclock without undue noise: buy it now. Not a single cooler has come across my desk that can measure up to the performance of the BigTyp Revo at the same price point. Sure, you can spend more and get a better cooler, but if you don't need a better cooler why spend more than you need to? The BigTyp Revo provides quiet cooling at a price point nearly anyone can afford. Thermaltake has a winner!
- Good cooling and easy on the ears
- Extremely easy installation
- Cooling not as great as more expensive coolers
- Some people may not like the green fan?
