MODTHEBOX would like to thank Jerry from Thermaltake for sending the Silent Tower CL-P0024 Heatsink for review.



Tabasco sauce, Egypt, jet engines, Stiffler’s mom, and your processor all have one thing in common: they are all hot. While extreme heat is to be expected in Egypt and with jet engines, for your processor it can be detrimental. As most know, a heatsink is used to cool the processor, preventing damage and possible degradation in performance. The standard run of the mill heatsink currently on the market is basically a chunk of aluminum or copper with grooves to allow for airflow that you slap a fan on and mount to your processor. In the past year we have seen the introduction of heatpipes, usually made of copper, that either direct the hot air up through the heatsink or help allow the cooler air reach the base of the heatsink. Today in the MTB Labs we will be evaluating the Silent Tower CL-P0024 heatsink from Thermaltake, a full copper cooling solution which utilizes heatpipe technology.


The Silent Tower CL-P0024 heatsink is constructed entirely out of copper and utilizes copper heatpipes. It can be configured for use in Intel LGA775, Pentium 4, AMD K7 and K8 systems and has holes for attaching a single 80mm fan, dual 80mm fans, a single 90mm fan, or dual 90mm fans. The Silent Tower CL-P0024 is also part of Thermaltake’s Combo Cool line of heatsinks which pairs fans, blowers, and thermal compound together in one package. Here are some specifications taken directly from the Thermaltake website:
