Akasa Revo Thermaldynamic CPU Cooler
A closer look
Close and up personal
Well the Akasa Revo strikes me as a pretty damn neat looking cooler. Very industrially designed with a cool silver finish, the Revo is definately a cool addition to a case with a window.
The other thing that strikes you is that the cooler feels very well built. Constructed in aluminium with a blue and clear fan, everything feels very solid and built to last. The fan shroud isn't tacky and again feels well put together and all the joints are well done.
Taking a look closer in we see the pipes and the base of the unit.
Here we can also see the mechanism that afixes the cooler to the socket adapter. The grooves in the black plastic part are where the "arms" for the socket adapters slot in.
The Radiator on the cooler is well made and looks exactly like the radiators in watercooling systems (and cars for that matter). An interesting choice rather than the fins normally seen on air coolers.
The case again shows how well made the cooler is.
Similarly to the Asus Triton
, the Revo's base still has marks from machining on it, but again is pretty flat with only a very small imperfection at the very edge on one side (when tested for flatness with a drop of water and some glass). This would not affect the cooling performance in any way in my opinion, as it is not in a place that would make contact with the CPU.
