Thermaltake have announced the Contac 30, a budget CPU cooler utilising the Direct Heatpipe Contact technology seen on the budget brands of many other manufacturers. As you would expect, aesthetically its' designed to complement Thermaltake's current case range through a polished steel design and blue LED clear fan. Worthy of note is the slightly bowed fin arrangement which, it is claimed, reduces back pressure for more efficient heat transfer. In single-fan configuration is rated at performance up-to 160W, so there's a little headroom for overclocking.

The fan also features a nod to low-noise operation. This 120mm PWM fan is curved for low-noise operation and can reduce down to 800RPM for near-silent operation. It attaches to the cooler by way of four rubber mounts which also serve to reduce vibration and ensure that it isn't transmitted to the heatsink; four additional mounts for are also included in the pack to attach an additional 120mm fan (not surprised).

The Contac 39 is identical to the Contac 39 apart from an additional matching 120mm PWM fan for higher cooling performance of up-to 180W. Both coolers will support Intel's upcoming LGA2011 standard for X79, as well as 1155, 1156, 775, 1366, AM2, AM3 and FM1.

Taipei, Taiwan; October 31, 2011; Thermaltake, being the industry pioneer brand in thermal solutions with the mission of “delivering the perfect user experience,” carrying the corporate vision of “building Thermaltake Technology into a cultural brand for the enjoyment of entertainment, e-Sports, technology, and lifestyle,” featured the Contac CPU air cooling Series that aids in fulfilling various needs in the market as well as the corporate mission of “delivering the perfect user experience.” This fall adding the shimmering Thermaltake Contac 39 and Contac 30 CPU air cooling to the series, providing a wider range of solution for bargain hunter who desire value and performance equally.

Enhancement Adding Value

The shimmering Contac 39 and Contac 30 materialized with dual and single crystal clear blue LED fans presented the blare while it performance, as well as improved curved aluminum fins of heat sink that not only reduce back air resistance but also grant for a better heat dissipation while heat been transferred from the CPU to the heat sink. Moreover, the new designed multifunctional surface-mount with back-plate will support all Intel and AMD chipsets as well as the latest Intel® Sandy Bridge-E Socket LGA-2011.

Prosperity of Performance

The Contac 39 and Contac 30 are exactly what the name suggested; a direct touch technology with three 8mm heat pipes is inherited along with special design low noise 120mm PWM fans that automatically adjust the fans’ speed between 800~2000 RPM according to the system condition to grant for a more direct and smart heat dissipation. The fans are connected with anti-vibration soft mounts allow easy access for installation and removal of cleaning as well as decrease the noise while the fans operate.

The unexpected value with performance is what the Thermaltake Contac series all about. Thermaltake Contac series now includes: Contac 39, Contac 30, Contac 29BP, Contac 21 and Contac 16.
