ID-COOLING already has an extensive collection of CPU tower coolers and all-in-one liquid coolers ranging from compact low-profile air coolers to huge dual-tower designs and large multi fan AIOs. This week the company has added another mid-range cooler to its thermal solutions arsenal.
The new ID-COOLING SE-914-XT Series CPU air cooler features a 130mm single tower heatsink design equipped with four direct touch copper heat pipes and a TDP rating of 150W. Two versions of the cooler are available, the basic model includes a regular 92mm fan while a slightly more expensive ARGB version is equipped with a 92mm fully addressable RGB fan.
Other subtle differences between the two models are found in the top cover, the ARGB version comes with a black top plate that covers the heat pipe ends and includes ARGB lighting effects. The basic model has a simple black sticker on top of the heatsink with the heat pipe tops exposed.
The 92mm fan on both coolers has a speed range of 600-2200 RPM with PWM support via a standard 4-pin PWM motherboard header cable. The fan features a 45.8CFM airflow rating at maximum RPM and there is an extra set of fan clips bundled in the box for users to run the cooler with a push-pull fan configuration for extra cooling performance.
ARGB lighting of the ID-COOLING SE-914-XT can be connected via a standard 3-pin 5v ARGB cable to motherboard headers for control of lighting colours and patterns, or simply synchronised with ARGB lighting of other system components. Also bundled with the cooler is ID-TG25 10.5 W/m-K thermal compound and the cooler supports all current mainstream desktop platforms including Intel LGA2066/2011/1200/1150/1151/1155/1156 and AMD AM4.
The ID-COOLING SE-914-XT series will be available in the U.S in August 2020 priced at $24.99 USD for the basic version or $34.99 for the ARGB model.
KitGuru says: It will be interesting to see how that 92mm fan handles both thermal performance and noise levels compared with other 120mm fan equipped coolers on the market. What do you guys think?
