[TPU] Xigmatek Announces Janus Low-profile CPU Cooler

Xigmatek rolled out the Janus low-profile CPU Cooler. It uses a C-type aluminum fin-array design. From a mirror-polished nickel-plated copper base, six 6 mm-thick heat pipes convey heat to an aluminum fin-stack arranged along the plane of the motherboard. It is ventilated by two fans arranged in a top-flow push-pull configuration.


Looks like a Big Shuriken with sexy fans

That looks nice, I have been wondering whether to try a C-type HSF on my next build (next month smile.gif ).

can anyone give me the pro's and cons vs a decent mid-range tower cooler? Say a Thermalright 120mm thing.

This looked good until I saw the bottom view. If the attachment method requires me to have 3 pairs of hands (like it did on my Cooler Master GeminII S524) then it'll have to have a real good price/cooling value.

The Thermalright AXP-100 and the Silverstone NT06-pro have a nicer mounting solution in regards to this type of cooler style.

Great to see fans are screwed in place, instead of using clips.

Look again..

Bottom fan is positioned to push air up, away from the CPU and towards the top fan, the top fan then sucks the air up and away from the heatsink.. Bottom fan pulls the air from underneath and pushes it towards the heatsink, the top fan then takes that stream, and pushes it away from the unit.

It's all in one direction.. from the CPU/Chipset and outwards.

A very easy way to tell what direction a fan is blowing at is to look at the Spoons or Cups, if the spoon is facing you (the inner side), then the air is blowing towards you. If they're looking the other way and the domed part (outer side) is facing you, then the air is being sucked in.
