Thermaltake's MaxOrb and V1 CPU coolers  - Thermaltake's MaxOrb and V1 CPU coolers

"Neither of these heatsinks are outright cheaper than the competition, but they are both available around the £30 mark - this is certainly a viable cost to anyone looking for a performance cooler. The MaxOrb is on the right side of that £30 depending where you shop and offers a marginally better performance, although it is physically larger. But does that matter? It still fits on every board we tried it on and even though the mounting is a bit of a hassle at first, once the clips are on/screws are in, it's job done in five minutes. Pop the kettle on and have a brew waiting for when you've finished. The V1 has more intuitive and accessible clips, whereas the Orb needs clips and a screw retention, but the beauty of the MaxOrb is that the retention clips don't need forcefully pushing into the motherboard because they are just used to mount the surrounding plate. All in all, set the fan to medium-low and both will cool fantastically well for a very reasonable investment of around £30. Both provide a great cooler for the investment, but the MaxOrb simply looks great in a case and despite being a pain to install, once in, it performs better than the V1 with a similar amount of (low) noise."
