one of the more prominent names in CPU cooler technology. With the SK-6 being
the heatsink that brought them their claim to fame, they now have an even better
and badder cooler to show, the Thermalright AX-7.
than a few weeks ago, Thermalright
sent a package over to my place containing their production version of the AX-7.
The review was actually due weeks ago, but due to problems with studies and my
system, I had to relegate the review to a later period. My apologies, as well
as thanks to Chris from Thermalright
for his patience.

Being a copper and aluminium
hybrid, the cooler utilizes a copper plate soldered to the aluminium body of the
cooler. How well the cooler performs will depend largely on the quality of the
interface between the copper and aluminium parts of the cooler.
