The Akasa Venom Voodoo in an interesting, eye catching cooler. It combines solid build quality, great styling and a simple installation process.
When we tested the cooler on our stock speed Phenom II X6 1090T the noise levels were pretty good, as was the cooling performance … clinging to the heels of the NZXT Havik 120 that we reviewed not that long ago.
When we overclocked the system to 4.0 GHz the Venom Voodoo was not able to perform to the level of the Havik 120, increasing processor temperatures by 6 degrees Celsius at 1,000 rpm and by 4 degrees Celsius when the fans were cranked to the limits.
We wouldn’t be able to tolerate the noise at full fan speed either so we don’t include this as a useable ‘real world’ result.
- great looks.
- easy to install.
- reasonable price.
- high build quality.
- fans are noisy at higher speeds.
- many other quality products at this price.
With a retail price of £44.99 inc VAT, the Venom Voodoo would be a good purchase for those looking to replace a stock cooler or to run a modestly overclocked system. Unfortunately for Akasa there are very strong alternatives under £50, some of which perform equally as good, if not slightly better.
Kitguru says: The Venom Voodoo is a good cooler at a reasonable price point.
