Thermosonic Thermoengine V60-4210

"The first thing one would notice about this unit is the modular fan design."

For the past couple of months, Taiwanese Thermosonic Tech has been "shaking" up the high end CPU cooling market through the introduction of their patented thermoengine heat sink. This aluminum alloy heatsink sports a slightly redesigned fin pattern, and a hollow core at the center of the unit. Using only a small (and quiet) fan, this cooler is certified for use with PIII 1GHz and up, as well as the AMD Athlon up to 1.5GHz.


  • Dimensions: 63x63x58mm
  • Weight: 258.6g
  • Bearing system: Ball bearing
  • Rated Voltage: 12V DC
  • Fan Speed: 3500-5500 RPM
  • Noise Level: 29.8-35.7 dBA
  • Air Delivery: 16.3-19.8 CFM
  • Heatsink Material: Aluminum Alloy



The unit

The first thing one would notice about this unit is the modular fan design. Thermosonic added a nice little "cap" to the unit, which allows for the fan to be easily replaced by other fans of the same dimensions. This is great if you want to upgrade the fan to something a little more powerful, such as the Delta 6800rpm fan.

Upon installing the unit I noticed the latches seemed a little to tight for my taste, making it somewhat difficult to install this unit without busting the core of your precious T-bird or Duron processor. To make matters worse, my copper shim posed another problem whilst installing the unit, as I could not get it on at all with the shim underneath! This could have also been made worse because my Iwill KA266 has resistors placed a little close to the latches on the socket adapter.
