14. How we test
Thermaltake Jing CPU air-cooler has been specifically developed for silent operation while maintaining a maximum of cooling efficiency. Its name is derived from the Chinese, representing “Silence.” The universal socket support makes it compatible to all computer processors currently available on the market. It offers a maximum cooling capacity of up to 200W and an almost un-audible noise level of 16 dBA at a fan speed of 800 RPM.
Unlike traditional up-side-down air flow designs, the Jing utilizes a tower side-flow design. To attain maximum cooling performance, Thermaltake’s Jing adopts 5 Φ6mm heat-pipes conducting heat from the Nickel coated mirror base directly into the cooling tower which is made of 41 0.5 mm thick specially designed aluminum fins to increase the overall thermal dissipation area. The two preinstalled extra silent 120 mm VR fans can be manually adjusted between 800RPM and 1300RPM according to differing user needs. Through their inhale-exhaust reverse fan design a greater airflow is achieved resulting in enhanced thermal performance.
By utilizing a particularly thin fan enclosure frame which is open to all four sides, noise generated by the airflow is reduced as much as any possible. Additionally a recess in the cooling fins at the entry and exit points of the airflow creates something similar to an air-cushion, giving the air an optimized angel to stream into between the cooling fins while at the same time reducing noise development even further.

- Retail package
Inside the retail box there is a printed manual as well as a kit of hardware. All the mounting hardware come in a convenient little box. Inside there is an Intel back plate and a closable plastic box with all the mounting hardware, and a Thermal paste.
Below you see the dimensions of the cooler, with single and dual fans installed:
The fins have been constructed from aluminum, while the base and heatpipes are made from copper. This makes for a total weight of 920 grams, which is very heavy, though this is becoming typical of high-end air-cooled heatsinks.
Thermaltake is trying to maximize cooling efficiency by using five dual heatpipes that extend through a large series of aluminum fins. In total there are five copper dual heatpipes measuring 6mm in diameter that run through the copper base and up through the fins on each side of the heatsink.
Light green and grey are the colors of the cooler:
On the top, Thermaltake covers most of it with this lime green cover. The centre has a cut out that exposes the Thermaltake logo and Jing etching found on the top aluminum fin.
The dual 120mm lime green fans each feature their own voltage regulator designed to adjust the speed anywhere from 800 to 1300 RPM. In push-pull configuration, the one fan is used to push air through the heatsink, the other is designed to suck it out.
The copper base is for the most part flat. The nickel plating helps to smooth out the imperfections, but as you can see the base isn't mirror like in any way.
Due to the pre-installed dual 120mm fans, getting access to them for installation is difficult as they cover the socket area entirely. So it's better to remove both fans before installation. Then use the "T-Mounting bars" to the base of the heatsink, which allows it to be secured to the mounting bracket.
Bundled with the package is the universal back plate, which is designed to work with the supported AMD and Intel platforms. A set of four long screws is next secured to the back plate using four plastic spacing nuts. Then either the Intel or AMD mounting bars are put in place and secured using four steel nuts.
