SAPPHIRE Technology, best known for its graphics solutions, has just started announced that the company will begin shipping CPU Coolers!  The first Sapphire HSF, Vapor-X CPU Cooler, was designed for the enthusiast and based on the company’s Vapor-X technology, the extremely efficient low-noise cooler features dual fans, a rating of 200 watts and a universal mounting system for both AMD or Intel CPU sockets. In a similar configuration to its graphics cards, the vapour chamber is in direct contact with the CPU surface to accelerate the flow of heat away. The heat is then carried away by a multi-heatpipe array and cooling fins. The Sapphire Vapor-X CPU Cooler is shipping now and will be available with a suggested retail price of $69.00 USD. As PC sales continue to decrease it is highly likely that more companies will branch out into new markets like this to keep revenue levels up!
