Sunbeamtech is the parent company of Tuniq, which develops high performance equipment for the computer enthusiast and modding market with products like power supplies and CPU coolers. The Tuniq Tower 120 CPU cooler series have proven themselves as top notch coolers, so when Sunbeamtech released the Core-Contact Freezer we had high hopes for how it will perform. The Core-Contact Freezer is an HDT or heatpipe direct touch cooler, which means that the coolers heatpipes sit directly on the CPU in place of the traditional solid metal base. We will use the Core-Contact Freezer against the other coolers in the test lab to see how it does on an Intel Core 2 Duo Q6600 processor, which is hands down one of the most sold quad-core processors to date. Before we get too far, let’s go over the specifications for the Core-Contact Freezer.
The Core-Contact Freezer comes well packed and no damage was present from shipping. The retail box has simple artwork showing the cooler and specifications.
Inside the retail box was an accessory box along with the CPU cooler that was packed in a plastic clamshell box.
In the accessories box is the LGA mounting ring and pins, expansion slot fan controller, instructions, fan clips, and Tuniq TX-2 thermal paste.
