The Eclipse II is a fine example of modern engineering put into effect. Boasting incredible features such as the five 8mm heat pipes, dual fans, and dimpled surface, the competition in the air cooling market just got stiffer. Coming out on top is a...

Standing 155mm tall, the Thermax Eclipse II heatsink weighs 822 grams and ships with two 120mm fans. Only one fan needs to be installed (default configuration), but if you think two fans are better than one be prepared for a moderately loud outcome....
