NZXT Introduces Respire CPU Coolers with Budget Users in Mind James White November 20, 2012 Press Release 0 Flares 0 Flares × NZXT had been making a lot of strides in recent years to both solidify their position in the PC case market as well as expand into the power supply and CPU cooler market. Following the same basic expansion principles, NZXT started with a game changer in the Havok 140. Then they moved to proving their mettle with options such as the Havok 120 and the new Kraken all-in-one liquid cooler. Now they add budget minded with the Respire Series. The NZXT Respire T20 is designed to maximize your cooling performance without spending a forture. Targeted toward entry-level builders, the T20 is only $29.99 MSRP with one 8 mm and two 6 mm direct touch heatpipes. The single 120 mm fan should provide sufficient cooling for most Intel and AMD processors with minimal noise. The NZXT Respire T40 comes in at $39.99 MSRP and does everything a little bit bigger. The Respire T40 comes with four 8 mm direct touch heatpipes and a wider fan span. This should provide a little better performance and a little more overclocking headroom without breaking the bank. I like NZXT's approach to expanding their product lines and markets. It reminds me of another PC component company, but I can't quite put my finger on who. Either way the Respire T20 and T40 should be great new options in the budget cooling market. Full Press Release » NZXT Introduces the Respire Series 13th November, 2012 – Affordable, high performance air cooling is now available with NZXT’s latest addition to its growing CPU cooler product line. NZXT introduces the Respire Series: aluminum-fin heatsinks utilizing seamless direct touch (SDT) technology for maximum cooling efficiency. Last year, NZXT entered the CPU cooler market with its powerful Havik 120 and Havik 140 CPU coolers. In October, NZXT released the Kraken, the world’s first all-in-one 140 mm and 280 mm liquid coolers. For its latest cooler, NZXT poured all of its resources into one simple goal: maximizing cooling efficiency. Designed for entry-level builders and enthusiasts alike, NZXT’s Respire proves you don't need to break the bank for powerful CPU cooling. With an MSRP of $29.99, the Respire T20 is equipped with one 8 mm and two 6 mm direct touch heat pipes applied using a patented manufacturing process which allows for the maximum amount of heat pipes in the smallest area possible. Priced at $39.99, the Respire T40 incorporates four 8 mm direct touch heat pipes manufactured using the same patented process. This process helps the Respire series achieve its ultra-high thermal transfer performance. Compatible with all of Intel and AMD’s latest offerings, NZXT’s Respire series offers high performance air cooling to all. Both models are backed by a 2 year manufacturer's warranty.
