Foxconn Coolers

Foxconn Coolers

Another copper heat-pipe design, the NBT-CMU3H3B-C should have better installation compatibility with its heightened design. Looks like it should work passively in low thermal situations or can be installed with 92mm fan.

Despite looking like an anvil, the NBT-CMU3H4B-C is actually the lower end model in the series and comes in lightest at 520g. This cooler also supports a 92mm fan installation.

Foxconn's large 92mm NBT-CMU3H1B-C copper heat-pipe cooler is designed for both Intel and AMD installation and features a fan within the cooler fins. The low-noise fan operates around 2500RPM with expected noise levels between 18-25dBA.

Unlike the universal socket compatibility of the first few coolers. The NBT-CMI775H-C is specifically designed for the LGA775 and should be able to handle Pentium 4 processors up till 4GHz.

The NBT-CMI77517S-C has a heightened spring retention mechanism for LGA775 installation. This cooler comes with a slightly noisier 32dBA, 3000RPM fan and can handle up to around 130W.

The NBT-CMI77517S-C has the same spring locking design as the previous cooler, but is made for mainstream systems. It even sports a low fin count, so expect less heat dissipation capabilities.

One of the more interesting AMD cooler designs from Foxconn, the NBT-CMAM22S-C is otherwise quite a normal heatsink cooler with a copper insert.

While Foxconn has gone into consumer products, they are at the core still a component manufacturer and Foxconn has on display their magnesium allow components ranging from notebook, mobile and projector enclosures and frames.
