Thermaltake Blue Orb II

by Greg King on February 24, 2006 in Cooling

There are so many CPU coolers on the market, it’s very hard to choose. Some may cool well but look horrible, but not so for the Blue Orb II from Thermaltake! Let’s jump into the review and see how this cooler compares to previous ones we’ve looked at.

Hello friends! Welcome to another socket 939 cooler review. Today we are taking a look at the Thermaltake Blue Orb II. This is the newest cooler to come from Thermaltake and I am going to compare it to a few other coolers I have reviewed in the past.

Thermaltake needs no introduction to anyone in the PC game but for those that might stumble across this review, here is a history lesson. Thermaltake was started in 1999 and has provided cooling solutions for PC and industrial application systems. These cooling solutions include cases, fans and heat sinks. Their headquarters are located in Taiwan but they have offices in the US, Mexico, Japan, China, the Netherlands, Germany, and Brazil.

Now, onto the review.


The Blue Orb II comes in a nice plastic casing that shows off the cooler in its entirety. There is a small box on the top of the case that houses the Intel adapters as well as the instructions.

On the back you can see the details and the copper base of the Blue Orb II.

Aside from that, there isn’t really anything to the packaging of the Blue Orb II. Short and sweet and to the point. That’s what I like to see!
