Thermaltake Jing Silent CPU Cooler ReviewThu, Apr 14, 2011 - 12:00 AM
Looking Closer at the Jing
The Jing is a tower cooler sporting 41 aluminum cooling fins on five 6mm nickel plated copper heatpipes. The Jing also has two 120mm open fame fans.
Each fan is attached to a mount that clips to the cooling fins. The fans are removable to aid in the installation process.
You can remove the whole mount or just the fan.
Each fan has a 3 pin power connector and its own rheostat style fan controller. The fan controller is removable; in doing so the fan will run at 100% speed.
In each corner of the fan mounts there is a small silicon nubbin for vibration isolation.
The fans on the Jing are standard 120mm dimensions. So if you wanted to change the fans for something else you have the option.
With the fans off we can get a look at the Jing. The fin structure and heatpipe arrangement make me think of the Frio; there are some slight differences to the base due to the mounting system being updated from what was used on the Frio.
This is looking from the side.
Looking at the top of the Jing the fin profile is symmetrical. There is a cover plate over the top of the Jing. It’s made of a translucent green plastic. What is nice is that Thermaltake was able to put the cover on and not affect the overall 162mm height because it’s below the tips of the heatpipes.
At the bottom we can see the 5 heatpipes. They are in a staggered pattern across the fins.
The base of the Jing looks flat and feels flat, but when I took the image of the base you can see the waviness in the plating.
