CES 2013: Thermaltake Introduces NiC and WATER 3.0 CPU Coolers; GOrb II Notebook Cooler

One of the companies we always pay a visit to at CES is Thermaltake. Long known in the DIY industry as a top-level component manufacturer, the company always has a solid display of new products on hand to show off. Never afraid to try something original, it continually pushes innovation forward, often to the point where you’re scratching your head wondering what’s to come.
New for Thermaltake, aside from the chassis line we discussed here, is its NiC line of CPU coolers. The air cooler design features “slim tower side flow design”, a 120mm fan and enough clearance for RAM modules. For good measure, an adjustable fan controller is added, allowing the user to pick their speeds and tailor them for their preferable acoustics.
Also new is the Water 3.0 Series. Bringing affordable water cooling to the masses, the WATER3.0 Series has been designed to fit most cases, broadening it’s appeal. We’re not exactly sure how it differs aside from aesthetics vs. WATER 2.0, however. Rounding out its offerings, Thermaltake has also revealed the GOrb II. This diminutive notebook cooler is based on the first place design of Tatung University from Thermaltake’s Creative Design Competition 2012.
Overall, a great set of releases, and you can be sure we’ll be featuring some of them on our site in the months ahead.
