Sunbeamtech have come up with an unusual design of having two fans attached to a heatsink which spin in the opposite direction. This is not simply a case of them telling us to attach the second fan upside down (which admittedly we have all done in the past) for push-push/pull-pull configuration, but instead supplying a fan which rotates clockwise and one rotating anti-clockwise to create some sort of turbulence effect.
There is no indication of the speed of the fans but the website does state a low noise level of 16dBA.
If all this isn’t enough for you they are providing a rheosmart controller so you can manually adjust the speed of the fans to get that perfect balance and TX-4 paste!
The Twister 120 comes supplied with an universal mounting kit compatible with all recent Intel & AMD sockets
This is a really interesting concept and makes it stand out from the crowd but the key question is does it work? And if it does work what are the noise levels really like? We’ll have to try and get one in to test to see if they are on a winner or are we still on a path of bigger is better!
Tell us your thoughts in the forum and maybe some of you engineers out there could explain the concept in layman terms.
The computer chassis and cooling accessory manufacturer, Sunbeamtech from Taiwan has just added a new product into their CPU cooler family, the Twister 120.
Opposites attract, even in cooling
In the never ending battle to tame the CPU heat, it is not possible to keep on increasing the size of the heatsink. Sunbeamtech took an innovative approach and came up with the ISO-Turbo Technology which incorporates 2 fans that are spinning in opposite direction. Compared to the traditional approach, the ISO-Turbo Technology provides higher airflow efficiency which translates to higher heat dissipation capability.
More control for you freaks
Sunbeamtech also includes a Rheosmart PCI controller to provide you the flexibility to either use the onboard PWM for automatic control of the fan speed or manually by hand using the turn knob. This addition really extends the control you have over the CPU cooling.
