In our previous review we compared the Thermaltake V1 against the MaxOrb and the MaxOrb CPU Cooler came out on top. Today we take an in depth look at the MaxOrb that Thermaltake sent us to test. With its 6 heatpipes, adjustable 110mm fan, and aluminum fins, it's bound to be a block of metal ice.

The MaxOrb is not as physically large nor as heavy as the V1 and the fan speed adjuster has been integrated into the heatsink itself which we find appealing. If you are anything like me, reaching around the back of your computer to adjust the speed of the fan has always been a pain. I usually leave the side panel of my case off for the best cooling effect so this setup lends itself well to ease of access.
