Gigabyte has a good deal of expertise to make a good CPU cooler. This is a 120mm CPU tower then pre-installed dual ball bearing fans with RGB accents for its logo. It supports a wide range of CPU sockets, including the phased out ones. As long as it doesn’t come in the way or affect cooling performance, nobody would care about that.
GIGABYTE also unveiled the Xtreme Gaming XTC700, a tower-type CPU cooler. Built to handle thermal loads of ">200W," and with support for LGA2011v3, AM4, LGA115x, AM3(+), FM2(+), and LGA1366; the cooler features an aluminium fin-stack with molded fins to maximize surface area for heat-dissipation; ventilated by a pair of 120 mm fans in push-pull configuration, capped off by a top-plate with an RGB LED-lit GIGABYTE Xtreme Gaming logo ornament that supports GIGABYTE RGB Spectrum software control.
Heat to the aluminium fin-stack is conveyed by three 10 mm-thick copper heat pipes, which make direct contact with the CPU at the base. The included fans each spin at speeds ranging from 500-1,700 RPM, pushing 14-53 CFM of air, and with a noise output of 12-31 dBA. The fans feature 4-pin (PWM) power input, while the LED ornament plugs into one of your motherboard's USB 2.0/1.1 headers. Measuring 139 mm x 109 mm x 169 mm, the cooler weighs 1015 g.
DUAL 120MM 2 BALL BEARING PWM FANS
Attached 2 big 120mm PWM fans to each side of the heat-sink, will efficiently dissipate the heat from the CPU at a very low noise level. PWM function provides the accurate and efficient fan speed for the CPU, to optimize the noise reduction and the thermal performance. GIGABYTE patented blade fan design increases the airflow by 23%. And moreover, the 2 ball bearing structure will provide longer and more stable lifespan
120MM UNIQUE BLADE FAN DESIGN
The 120mm dynamic adjusting fan provides the silent operation. The airflow is spilt by the triangle fan edge, and guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface, effectively enhancing the airflow by 23% over the traditional fans.
DOUBLE BALL BEARING STRUCTURE
The double ball bearing structure has better heat endurance and efficiency than sleeve structure. Hence it will provide longer life time.
The fans are mounted in a push/pull configuration, and you could easily take the fans off and change their orientation to suit the airflow direction for your chassis, as they’re mounted on metal clips. You could even install your own fans if you so desired.
The top panel looks awesome, even while it’s powered off. It has an RGB-lit Xtreme Gaming logo in the middle, as well as some lovely orange highlights, which would match up nicely with some of the high-end Gigabyte motherboards.
The heat pipes themselves are huge, clocking in at 10mm each, the three pipes pass through both sides of the cooler in a “U” shape and make direct contact with the CPU.
Both the USB header cable and the Y-cable for the fans are installed inside the heatsink. The Y cable with two ends does not use traditional 4-pin fan connector, which also means the connectors on the fans are the not the same. The single connector has a 4-pin for the motherboard. Gigabyte may have decided to use such wiring for motherboards which have a single 4-pin header for the CPU. However, due to the design of the cap and the fan frames, you wouldn’t able to fit standard frame CPU fans unless you plan on removing the cap. Removing the top cap needs to be done carefully as it latches itself on the top heat fin.
