Up Close

Wow, what an exciting box.  Although someone might like to have a quiet word in the shell-like of the marketing team that thought a component to be installed in a PC case would be best represented by having sparks flying all around it, but hey, who are we to know.

So, we've often talked about how the outside of a box communicates the key features and technical specification of the product inside.  Well Akasa is no exception, they too relate the relevant data on the box exterior.  All you have to do is find it.

You get the usual bag of fittings and backplates that we've come to expect, along with a syringe of TIM and a molex to 3 pin fan adapter.  The odd K shaped bracket, is actually the AMD bracket that slides onto the side of the cold head.

The 120mm fan based radiator is 27mm thick, so should give reasonable performance, although the 1900rpm fans may be a little on the slow side.  We guess time and torture testing will tell.

The Venom A10 utilises a square copper contact plate which is screwed on in eight places.  It comes with the Intel bracket already fitted, although an AMD is included as discussed above.

Akasa have chosen to embellish the top of the cold head with a Snake and "Venom" logo.  We're not sure this is quite our bag, but horses for courses and all that.

The Venom A10 is a piece of piddle to install, and with good flexible hoses, there's no evidence of kinking or twisting.

 Ah yes, the yellow fan.  Well if you've got a yellow themed case, you know, because of all the other yellow stuff out there, then it's not such a bad option.  Failing that, you can always swap it out for another fan.  But hey, at least it's not got the diarrhea brown and prosthetic limb beige colouring of the Noctua fans.

Whether  you like the styling of the cold head or not, there's no denying it looks quite cool when back lit ice white.  Strange, for some reason I though it was going to light up bright yellow.

Amazing amount of in depth analysis and explanation fellows, as always, thank you for not only presenting detailed and thorough information but explaining the points you make and why certain aspects/elements are more effective.

Great to see Cryorig putting up great figures. Seems like all of their offerings are at least solid, if not phenomenal, especially for the value.Quote
