Thermaltake Introduce its Sandia-inspired Engine 27 1U Low-Profile CPU Cooler

Back in 2011, we saw the Sandia CPU cooler concept, now Thermaltake takes a few design cues, and launched the Engine 27, a low-profile CPU cooler with the heatsink-impeller design. The Engine 27’s design involves a metal heatsink base that makes contact with the CPU, which conveys heat to a motorized fan-shaped moving heatsink suspended along an axle and conductive lubricant. The rotation of this moving heatsink dissipates heat. Thermaltake also improve the design with the base-plate a static aluminium channel heatsink of its own, so it can despite some additional heat.

The Thermaltake named the cooler Engine 27 (meets 1U standard) because of its 27 mm height and the core look like a jet engine. The cooler measuring 27 mm x 91.5 mm x 91.5 mm (HxWxD), and its weighs about 310g. Thermaltake claiming the cooler only produce 13-25 dBA noise depending on its speed range of 1500-2500 RPM and powered by a 4-pin PWM fan connector. The Thermaltake Engine 27 will support LGA115x sockets (LGA1156/LGA1155/LGA1151/LGA1150). No pricing has been announced.
