A Closer Look/Specifications




The Kingwin Revolution RVT-9225 really doesn't look significantly different from most other heatpipe coolers with aluminum radiator and conventional styled fan that are configured perpendicular to the motherboard.

The radiator is well made, and pretty heavy. Maybe a little too heavy for me to be comfortable. To be honest, it reminds me of a Thermalright aluminum radiator, the fins are shiny rather than dull like many. The fins are flawless, no dents, bends, etc.

The fan is mounted to the radiator with these rubber pins to prevent noise from vibration. Seems like Kingwin thought of nearly everything... except sleeving. There are four uncovered wires leading to the fan power connector. Seems like they could have done a little something there.

Kingwin decided to design the cooler for a 92mm fan. You know, I thought that 92mm fans were pretty silly as case fans… but really, they are the perfect sized fan for a CPU cooler. They allow more airflow and less noise than an 80mm, but smaller than a 120mm. A radiator sized for a 120mm fan is just too heavy for my liking. The fan is rated at 23 to 35dB.



The cooler fits all Intel Socket 775 and AMD K8. I have seen a few “one cooler fits all” CPU coolers that really didn't work that well for either. Let's hope that Kingwin has done a better job than that. Included is hardware for both, an air deflector (called a “spoiler”) that forces some of the exhaust air towards the motherboard, a power adapter and some thermal grease.

Ok, time to check out the base!
