Enthusiast PC users are rarely satisfied with the performance or appearance of reference bundled CPU coolers. These coolers are either not good enough, too loud or lack aesthetic appeal to be installed inside a very carefully designed system. This alone explains the huge demand for aftermarket cooling solutions and the great number of products available.
Akasa has been busy releasing many new coolers this year and today we will take a look at yet another new product from them, the Venom CPU cooler.
Akasa designed the Venom for enthusiasts who want to combine high thermal performance with relatively silent operation and aesthetics.
