Default Thermalright Set to Launch Venomous-X CPU Cooler

Despite teasing users with simple silhouettes on the Thermalright website , the Venomous-X CPU Cooler has been pictured completely naked.

i am definitely interested in comparing this to the Ultra-120 eXtreme and CU copies i have here, not sure how much a denser fin setup will benefit compared to the older models with high powered fans...might be better with lower RPM fans?

Get some really high static pressure Panflos or SanAces and this thing would dominate for sure.

A denser fin structure should benefit more from high-power fans.

They seem to have sort of copied the Prolimatech's mounting scheme.. Let's hope no more wire clips are going to be given, and they stick to a better fan mounting procedure, I actually also hope if the price is on the high side at launch like the TRUE, they include at least a Fan and 2 fan mounting hardware, out of the box off course..

The TRUE still performs very well, I really hope, this time Thermalright made a better cooler..

Would love to see this be compared to the U-120E and the Megalahems.

Fans should be an option, no offense to Thermalright.

"Fans should be an option, no offense to Thermalright."

"It dissipates heat through six nickel heatpipes leading into a dense aluminum fin array that supports up to two 120mm fans."

Am I missing something?
