OCZ released the OCZ Tempest, a new air and heat pipe CPU cooling technology.
The Tempest implements a new design to address the demanding cooling requirements of
gamers and enthusiasts. OCZ built the Tempest to provide extreme cooling capabilities
for the latest CPU offerings. The Tempest features a pure copper base plate and quad
copper heat pipe design to efficiently dissipate heat. Heat is transferred into a dense
titanium plated fin array where a 92mm fan removes the thermal load quietly and
The Tempest also offers a compact footprint design. The Tempest?s heatsink layout is
small enough to be used with the majority of motherboards and cases. Additionally, the
Tempest gives enthusiasts and case modders the freedom to customize their cooler by
providing two sets of mounting holes to accommodate a wide range of replacement fans.
