Cooler Master brings out the new Vortex Plus, a low profile CPU cooler with four 6mm direct contact heat-pipes for maximum heat conductivity, it also has a 92mm Blade Master PWM fan, ideal for the mini-ITX motherboards as well as slim casings.
Even with its tiny size the Vortex Plus manages to give great cooling power featuring a Blade Master 92mm balance PWM fan, this can be as quiet as 17dBA at 800 rpm or you can boost it up all the way to 2800 rpm if needed. The 6mm heat-pipes maximizes the heat conductivity which is quickly removed by thin bladed aluminium heatsink.
The Vortex Plus comes with many mounting accessories that enables it to fit onto all the current motherboards and CPU’s. It has its own custom push-pin solution for Intel motherboards, making it easy to add and remove the Vortex Plus, it also has does not have to be screwed in place like many other custom cooling solutions.
