Akasa Revo Thermaldynamic CPU Cooler

Installation

Installation

Installation was a test that the Akasa Revo passed with a gold star. The installation method tells you to attach the adaptor for the socket type you are using the cooler for. You then unclip the thick industrial-looking clips from the adaptor and slide the cooler into place.

Once this is done you simply ensure the clips are in place on the guide rails on the coolers base and clip them under the adaptors retention mechanism.

Sounds easy? It quite literally is. It was so quick I even forgot to take a picture during the process!

Clearance wasn't a problem here, as you can see.

The base fits and feels very snug in place.

Some nice branding on the top of the shroud.

There were no clearance issues at all on the motherboard itself which is always a total bonus.

And I'm spent, time for a cup of tea. Zero to installed in well under five minutes.

Looks sexy £30 bit OTT though, since you can get a Freezer pro for about £15 and that does just fine.Quote

Indeed, though the price is as below, $40

Ah well.

It has to be said, I started reading the review (excellent again btw) with a pretty optimistic slant - especially with the idea of the tech involved.

To be fair, it looks an equiv cooler of a stock Intel (give or take minimal temps), but quieter. That in mind, the price is OTT imo.

Agree with the conclusion tbh. (however personally disappointed a bit)Quote
