Akasa Revo AK-925 Loop Thermosyphon Heatsink Review Akasa Revo AK-925 Loop Thermosyphon Heatsink Review
Unlike heatpipes which typically use water under a slight vacuum for working fluid, the Revo heatsink is slightly pressurized with a fluorocarbon called R134a. R134a has a boiling point of -26.3°C at room pressure, but in the hermetically sealed system at a slight pressure that boiling point is raised to a level more appropriate for this application.

Akasa Venom Nano Heatsink Review Akasa Venom Nano Heatsink Review
Akasa's Venom Nano heatsink stands 150mm tall, weighs 560 grams and installs onto AMD socket AM2/AM3 and Intel socket 775/1156/1366 processors. Off the cuff though, it seems a little modest for Intel Core i7 use, dito for AMD Black Edition chips.

Akasa Blue Aurora AK-966BL Heatsink Review Akasa Blue Aurora AK-966BL Heatsink Review
The thermal design follows in the footsteps of models released by Xigmatek and others, but if you flip the Blue Aurora AK-966BL over you won't find exposed heatpipes.

Akasa Nero AK-967 Heatsink Review Akasa Nero AK-967 Heatsink Review
Akasa's Nero AK-967 heatsink is based on the popular heatpipe direct touch technique, and like so many CPU coolers, for today's class of heatspreader capped processors it's the only way to go!

Akasa AK-TT12-80 Thermal Adhesive Tape Akasa AK-TT12-80 Thermal Adhesive Tape
If you've ever needed to re-attach a heatsink held in this manner, what are you to do? Thermal paste is sold in every computer store, but thermal adhesives?

The Akasa AK-975Cu is a compact little Intel socket 775 heatsink that stands no more than 77mm tall. It comes with a 70mm PWM fan that varies in speed from 1000-3500RPM, and a convenient patch of pre-applied thermal compound on its base.

Akasa AK-876 AMD Athlon64 Heatsink Review Akasa AK-876 AMD Athlon64 Heatsink Review
As you might expect, the Akasa AK-876 is a lower noise AMD processor heatsink that is both easy to install and fairly lightweight. A thermally controlled fan was abandoned for a PWM compliant one instead.

Akasa AK-965 Intel Core 2 Duo Heatsink Review Akasa AK-965 Intel Core 2 Duo Heatsink Review
Akasa's AK-965 heatsink utilizes a 95mm PWM fan spins only as fast as needed to achieve good temperature control, and works well at moving air relatively quietly through the aluminum fins.

The Akasa AK-873 is a socket AM2 or 754/939/940 AMD Athlon64 heatsink, and it comes with its own fan speed controller which enables it to shift from high speed operation to whisper quiet.

Akasa 80mm Glowing Fans for Case Pimping Akasa 80mm Glowing Fans for Case Pimping
Of the two types of fans the all Blue coloured fan looks the best IMHO, and comes with a small rheostat so you can even control the RPM speeds and thus noise levels.

Akasa Icicle 238 Heatsink Review Akasa Icicle 238 Heatsink Review
The Silver Mountain heatsink from Akasa was one of the most notable heatsink concepts to ever make it to market, but the Icicle 238 is not to be overlooked either.
