TEC technology converts voltage into a temperature differential to enhance the cooling capabilities of a standard air cooler. V3 Voltair combines a high performance air cooler with a powerful TEC element to produce excellent cooling capabilities that rival potentially dangerous liquid cooling products.

Voltair is compatible with all of the latest CPU sockets from Intel and AMD, and its unique construction allows for the use of oversized, high-performance memory sticks in enthusiast level systems. The cooler is easy to install and the fans can be adjusted based on acoustic preferences.

Integrated TEC Technology
At its core, Voltair is a high-performance 120mm air cooler. It features two 120mm fans in a push-pull configuration and can move a lot of heat away from the processor. We've supercharged this cooler by using TEC technology to actively pump more heat from the processor's surface at an even faster rate.

Heat is absorbed from the CPU surface into the base of the first-stage air cooler and transferred through direct thermal contact heatpipes to the outer bank of cooling fins. Excess heat from the base of the first-stage air cooler is then actively pumped to the second-stage air cooler by the TEC plate. This heat is transferred through a second set of heatpipes to the interior bank of cooling fins. Fans move air across the cooling fins to remove heat from the system.
Supercharged Heat Transfer
A TEC plate serves as an active heat pump and uses an electrical current to produce temperatures that are sub-ambient, which is not possible when using standard heatsinks or liquid cooling. Current is run through a two dissimilar conductors and a corresponding heat difference is produced between the top and bottom surfaces. Voltair exploits this temperature differential to accelerate the process of removing heat from the CPU surface, unlike any other cooler on the market.
Customizable Fan Speed
The dual 120mm fans on the V3 Voltair can be set to whatever speed you desire. We understand the need to tune performance as well as acoustic properties, so you can select just the right speed to maintain silent operation in your environment while maximizing airflow.

The optional fan speed controller easily mounts in an available expansion slot in your chassis. The fans can also be plugged directly into a motherboard fan header for control through the BIOS. (See motherboard manual for details.)
Modular Design
The V3 Voltair was designed to be compatible with a wide range of enthusiast hardware options, including memory modules with high-profile heatspreaders and motherboards with large power regulation heatsinks. To achieve this compatibility, Voltair has a modular fan shroud that can be removed for easy installation.

Compatibility has been tested with memory heatspreaders up to 55mm (2.16") tall (measured from bottom of DIMM). It is recommended to install the cooler without the fan shroud before installing memory to maximize working area and ease installation.

5 out of 5 eggsgodzilla cpu cooler

Pros: normal load 14c and fans on lowest setting heavy load so gaming 28c with low fan setting, high load with high fan rpm 12c and the temp for the past week has been 26-30c out side so it does a great job at keeping things cool

Cons: had to cut a hole in my side panel to fit this guy in there I'm using the Apevia X-Cruiser3 case wasn't much i had to remove just a small lip of metal and adjust the clear side panel

Other Thoughts: I thought it would be loud but on low setting the fan is quiet and over all its a strong built product. I much prefer air cooling over water and this guy was well worth the money.I would say to any one that likes air cooling with over side ram to buy this guy just make sure you got the space or a pair of tin snips so you can cut you side panel abit if it comes to that

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well but is MASSIVE

Pros: This cooler will definitely keep your CPU nice and cool. My CPU idles slightly under ambient with this thing on, and keeps the CPU under 60 while gaming.

Cons: This thing is MASSIVE. Cannot reattach the side panel of my case due to this thing jutting out just a little too much.

5 out of 5 eggsNot many reviews for this so...

Pros: -Keeps overclocked processor at 32-33 degrees c under no load
-" " 40-60 degrees c under heavy load (gaming)
-Thermo-grease it comes with is not bad
-Great modular design
-Great instructions/design for 2011 socket type

Cons: -It's huge
-Can be hard to work around if you've never built a pc before
-Put your power cable to north-bridge/cpu in BEFORE you secure it to case
- Removing/adding ram may be difficult for future

Other Thoughts: Don't let the size scare you. If you want a cool processor and are looking for high-end without the mucking about with liquid cooled then this is for you.

Pros: I just received this item today, It does it's job good so far, but only owned this 1 day. If your a overclocker, plenty of metal to dissipate the heat. Comes with a PCI slot Adjustable Fan Speed control.

Cons: HEAVY AS A BRICK. Almost broke my motherboard in half and I have a Gigabyte Z87X-OC Force. HUGE, MASSIVE, Did not fit in my Full size Lian Li Tower. I could not close the side window access panel. The 2 fans and Inner Heatsink fins completely cover all the RAM slots. Good thing I preinstalled the ram.

Other Thoughts: I have not yet been able to evaluate the full potential of this Heatsink/Fan, as I needed to order a extension molex power supply cable so in my large full tower case the molex power connector could reach all the way across the motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggscools very well

Pros: does what it says

Cons: a little noisy. a little heavy

Other Thoughts: I replaced my 77 watt i7 3770k with a 130 watt i7-4930K. the case the old processor ran and 90c most of the time(processor was in the 90% utilized all the time due to it processing data for 9 security cameras). the 4930K is now running at 70% and its stays between 48c and 54c in a really awful computer case. Now I just need to reduce the nose a little and everything will be set.
