Great cooling can cost a substantial amount of money, but it does not need to be that way. The Thermaltake Contac29 nails any requirement you might have for a budget cooler – easy to fit, quiet in operation with impressive cooling performance....

As I said on the previous page, I am definitely satisfied with the Thermaltake Contac 29. It is lightweight, affordable, and quiet; yet it extends very similar performance to coolers that cost nearly twice. However, since the cooler is small, its...

The focus of this Frostytech review is the Thermaltake Contac 29, a new mid-sized tower heatsink from this well known Taiwanese-based manufacturer....

Direct-contact heat pipes must work! When the wimpy-looking Cooler Master Hyper 212+ (reviewed Holiday 2009) came along and matched performance with the best air coolers on the market, we wondered if its direct-contact heat pipes were responsible, and...

While it won't fit into the really small cases the Vortex can hide into, the Contac is reasonably sized and will fit in any midsize tower out there and also won't block memory slots. The price is right and there really is nothing to complain...

In the end I found that this was a good cooler. What it lacked in size it made up for in efficiency. While it might not have been the best overclocking CPU cooler it stood its ground and proved that even little coolers can still provide good heat...

The tests shows us that the Artic Cooling Freezer Xtreme is a bit better in full, but also the Contact 29 isn’t so bad, and it gives a boost of 18°C from Intel stock and it’s very easy to mount and unmount.So those two cpu cooler are on...

The Thermaltake Contac 29 CPU cooler is a very good choice if you're looking for an inexpensive way to cool your CPU. It cools as well as cooler priced twice as much, which is truly saying something about the design and quality of it. Yes, I'd...

We were definitely impressed by the results of this unit, and it really is an all around strong player. However, the mounting system presented for AMD setups isn't exactly something we're in love with, and the same can be said for the fan...

While the AMD clamp mounts exposed copper HDT rods very well to the processor and transfers heat to the twin-fan aluminum finsink, a standard push-pin mounting clip system keeps this cooler from reaching its very best possible performance...

The Thermaltake Contac 29 provides a compromise of performance and noise at a price that won't break the bank....

What do you need in a CPU cooler? Do you need it to look like someone's ripped the still-sparking heart out of one of Michael 'Ka-blam Boom' Bay's Transformers? Does it need sparkly LEDs and fanciful, extraneous trimmings? No, it needs...

the included PWM 120mm fan proved its worth. The fans special low noise blades were able to minimize any noise coming from the cpu cooler. As for cons; yes there were a few, luckily nothing drastic. One was how easily the fins could bend. While the...

Something we always like to see when unboxing a midrange cooler is the fan pre-attached to the heatsink. This makes installation easier and quicker for consumers which is always appreciated. As well as attaching the fan Thermaltake also add rubber...

Ya hemos visto todo lo necesario: cada una de las unidades analizadas a fondo, y luego sometida a pruebas para observar su rendimiento. Más o menos era lo que esperábamos: los disipadores más grandes son los que mejor rendimiento dan, y los más...

I sistemi di dissipazione ad aria sono le soluzioni maggiormente diffuse nel mondo del cooling informatico, nonostante prestazioni quasi sempre inferiori a quelle dei sistemi di raffreddamento non convenzionali. Non è infatti eresia dire che, nella...

International Review By Technic3D on 85

Thermaltake brachte mit dem Contac 29 Kühler keinen High-End Anwärter, jedoch hat er Stärken in der Verarbeitung und bei kleinerer Drehzahl hält sich die Geräuschkulisse sehr angenehm zurück. Das war bei Thermaltake in den...

International Review By BitCity on 88

Thermaltake Contac 29 è l'ultimo nato tra i radiatori per CPU ad alte prestazioni e si contraddistingue per l'adozione di un sistema a heatpipe e per l'elevata capacità di dissipazione del calore. Si tratta di un prodotto...

Zu diesem Kühler gibt es eigentlich nicht viel zu sagen. Die Montage ist simple, die Kühlleistung super und die Verarbeitung ebenso. Lediglich das kaum hörbare Brummen bei 5 V und die Lautstärke bei 12 V im Analogbetrieb fallen...
