The Thermaltake Contac 29 CPU cooler has three large 8mm copper heatpipes at its base that directly contact the CPU for highly efficient thermal conduction. This sub $40 cooler is priced right, but how does it perform? Read on to see how it performs on our Intel LGA1366 test system compared to two other CPU coolers!
Today I'll be showing you Thermaltake's Contac 29 which combines performance and silence in a heatpipe tower package. Priced at $36.99 plus shipping the Contac 29 sits around what I'd consider to be the mid-range price bracket. The Contac 29 is equipped with three 8mm heatpipes that make direct contact with the integrated heatspreader included in modern processors. Bundled with the heatsink is a 120mm by 120mm by 25mm fan that keeps the heatsink cool while running incredibly quiet.
