Thermaltake Jing Silent CPU Cooler Tested

Introduction

Thermaltake has released a new addition to its CPU cooler lineup, Jing, which stands for “silence” and carries with the concepts of silent operation and eco-friendliness.

The cooler employs two unique fans and green rubber cover.

Jing packs two 128*128*27mm fans with reverse fan design, working between 800-1300RPM.

Jing measures 131(L)x123(W)x162(H)mm, and weighs 920g (including the fans).

The vibration-absorbent gaskets are included to decrese noise while operation.

The cooler packs large aluminum fins with five 6mm heatpipes for good cooling capacity.

The 41 pieces of fins form a heatsink coverage of 6300cm2. The fin distance is 2.2mm, which is beneficial to its performance under low-speed operation.

The copper base is very smmoth, and connected to the five heatpipe by molding technique.

Jing features all-in-one back-plate design for easy installation. It comes with universal support for Intel socket LGA1366/1156/775 and AMD socket AM2/AM2+/AM3.

    I guess if you can’t beat out the cooling efficiency of the great Noctua NH-D14 or the mighty Megahalems why not make a make a CPU cooler that will appeal to 12 year old girls. My little niece would love this next to her “My Little Pony”, oh wait she doesn’t build computers, so who’s gonna buy this?

    Notice how every CPU cooler company seems sort of stuck in their tracks trying to engineer a better heatsink than the NH-D14? Even Prolimatech, with much respect due, released an only slighty tweeked version the SuperMega, of their Megahalems. They left some nickel plating off of a few fins and improved the fan clips but the temps I saw were exactly the same. Does Noctua own some patent rights to the twin tower design or is their R&D just far and ahead of everyone else?

    Noctua tip of the day: I installed a NH-D14 the first week they were available last October or November. I guess everyone knows it ships with their newest 140mm FLX fan and an older 120mm fan. I was so impressed with the new 140mm in every respect I went and purchased another one just to install in my Corsair HX850 PSU, yup breaking the famous Corsair 7-year warranty. But right before the PSU surgery I clipped it on the NH-D14 in place of the smaller 120mm fan. Sure enough I got a 2C to 3C drop in temps. So even those amazing review specs can be improved upon by using 2 140mm FLX fans! Some tech companies are so damn good, you just kinda grow accustom to their face.

    Ok I’ll shut up so somebody else can talk now.

    It’s pretty much a chicken-egg causailty argument, which comes first: customer demand or a company introducing a brand new product to get that attention? The latter rarely happens, it isn’t exactly a successful business model. They all would rather wait for customers to demand something new before making it.

    There’s an old saying in business, called “do what works”. The idea is as long as your product isn’t too different from another which is selling quite well, you’re more of less gauranteed sales. More different however equals more riskm which leads to more cost and ultimately the chance it won’t sell that well simply as the group of those that desire such difference are always niche.

    As consumers, we technically can’t get too upset if/that most coolers available aren’t that different from each other simply because those of us willing to pay for it don’t outnumber everyone else that settles for what’s available. We speak with our wallets and we already told these cooling companies what we like from what we keep buying, thus they build these things over and over again.

    We’d have to ask tens of thousands of people to deliberately not buy the best air coolers, not buy the popoular ones, as this would give the cooling companies the impression that what’s popular now doens’t cut it, and must look into more creative ways of getting our money…er cooling our CPUs.

    But this isn’t like Global Warming whether our grandkids have fresh air or not based on what we do today, we’re pretty selfish on what coolers we want to use in our computers and may not care to affect the industry for something different years down the road. If anyone truly cared, they would put their money where their mouth was. The fact that most coolers look and perform like a few certainly tells the cooling industry exactly what we demand.

    I’m saying for them to be responsible to come up with new ideas is irresponsible mainly as we are the ones making the choice to buy the same variants over and over again. We don’t have to, but we clearly choose to.

    Causality a word to sit back and think about.
