Aftermarket cooling products is a massive market with numerous companies fighting for enthusiast money. Akasa is one of the companies fighting for position in this overcrowded market. Back in October of 2010 we looked at their original Venom cooler and today we are going to check out the new Akasa Venom Voodoo.
Akasa have extensive design and development capability in Europe, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Their thermal engineers are equipped with sophisticated computer modelling software for measuring noise and case vibrations, airflow, static pressure and temperature control. They are specifically developing advanced expertise in energy saving and silent operation technology. New products are subject to rigorous testing before committing them to market.
Let’s see what type of engineering expertise the makers of the Venom Voodoo have brought to the table.
- six high capacity heatpipes with direct CPU contact
- dual 12cm viper fans for extreme performance
- award winning S-Flow fan providing 30% more airflow
- high grade aluminum profiled fins ensure optimum heat dissipation
- silicon rubber fan mounts for easy installation and ultra quiet performance
- rapid heat transfer from CPU to aluminum fins
