OCZ Technology Introduces the Innovative, High-Performance Vendetta to its Lineup of CPU Cooling Solutions

OCZ Technology Group, Inc. a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory and computer components, today unveiled the OCZ Vendetta CPU cooler as their leading-edge yet affordable solution. Using a distinctive, highly efficient heat pipe and fin design developed by Xigmatek in combination with a low-noise fan, the Vendetta is built to tackle heat-induced performance degradation and to solve the cooling challenges of today’s enthusiast system builds.

“The new Vendetta cooler introduces a number of novel features to the world of desktop processor cooling,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “Especially large scale fins associated with high performance coolers are burdened with the problems of laminar flow, at the same time, initial heat removal from the source is hampered by high thermal resistance at the processor interface. Both problems are attacked with Vendetta by combining dimple-technology with direct heat pipe contact and adding the body of the base plate only as secondary buffer for excessive heat transients.”

While traditional heat pipe CPU coolers implement a solid base plate design, the Vendetta’s three copper heat pipes make direct contact with the processor to ensure the most rapid heat transfer. A novel “dimple” micro-configuration of the stacked aluminum fins adds turbulences, thereby reducing the skin effect of laminar air flow. Moreover, a folded "V" shape macro-configuration of the fins adds surface area without compromising the compact design. As a result, the Vendetta offers effective cooling area found usually only in much larger coolers to parallel their performance without the spatial requirements.

“We are pleased to see our inventions put into mainstream production by OCZ Technology,” commented Gary Huang, CEO of Xigmatek. “OCZ Technology’s commitment to innovation is a perfect counterpart for Xigmatek’s engineering capabilities and the combination of our strength will give us the best performance – price solution in the consumer cooling market.”

The ultra-quiet fan, with its anti-vibration rubber connectors to reduce excess noise, sets new standards in quiet, yet extremely efficient cooling performance. Because of its compact design, the OCZ Vendetta CPU cooler can be accommodated with ease even in the most crowded cases. The versatile Vendetta is compatible with AMD AM2/939/754/755 and Intel 775 sockets and can be installed quickly and easily by end-users at all skill levels.

Compact style combined with quiet and efficient heat dissipation makes the OCZ Vendetta the top choice to cool the latest processors. The Vendetta provides superior and reliable performance with its state-of-the-art design for enthusiasts looking to upgrade for improved system stability.
