Thermolab Micro and Nano Silencer CPU Coolers

ThermoLab recently introduced the Micro and Nano Silencer PCT (Power Clamping Technology) CPU coolers aimed at those of want to lower noise levels. 'Power Clamping Technology' is a new technology developed by ThermoLab that helps the heat sink cooling fins make better contact with the heat pipes. Does the technology work? Read on as we look at the ThermoLab Micro Silencer PCT and Nano Silencer PCT on a system running an Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Processor!

i see you didnt try running these with the q6600 at 3ghz? i can see why. i really dont like pwm coolers except in laptops, but im almost alwasy listening to loud music when i use the computer (its loud because i have tinnitus, i constant ringing in the ear) so i dont appreciate quiet coolers. does seem like a nice option for an htpc, not only is it quiet its nice and small too, couuld maybee even fit in a 1u profile?

That must have been painful to watch the temps.

I couldn't let my chip get that hot, even for testing.

For low profile cases, this cooler should be pretty good though.
A big of undervolting and some overclocking, and temps should be just fine :)

Was a little nerve wrecking to watch.
