In this review we have tested the Kuthtec Chaos KTM2100 Cooler and measured the temperature results with our test setup. Additionally you can listen to an embedded MP3 fan sound sample of the fan on the respective heatsink.
Chaos KTM2100 (also available in other versions)
|Overall size in L/B/H||+ 80/63/60 mm The heat sink protrudes laterally beyond the base – see Fit for Fan|
|flow rate||+ 19.1 CFM at ~4800 rpm|
|noise level||– 39.3 dB (A) Is still well bearable. Listen online soon.|
|assembly||++ The assembly of the cooler is quite simple, because the clamp is very well arrested and pre-bent. So you hardly miss the missing screwdriver holder and can mount the cooler wonderfully without tools.|
|Cooling result||+++ The cooling result is quite respectable. 43°C at 1.75 Volt and 45°C at 1.90 Volt core voltage|
|Overall impression||++ The 374 gram light KUTHTEC Chaos KTM2100 radiator is a chaos in the truest sense of the word, but if you look at the technical data and the result, you certainly don’t think of a chaotic radiator 😉 Kuthtec has again used the hole strategy for this heat sink, whereby the cool air reaches the CPU directly. In addition, the cool air of this heatsink is also led sideways past the lamellas, which probably led to the name Chaos. In addition, the manufacturer has also given the Chaos cooler a 25mm copper core, which serves for optimal heat transfer with the CPU core. All in all a great construction, but not yet able to unfold properly at 19.1 CFM. The heat sink is unfortunately not suitable for Peltier elements ! Many thanks to the company KUTHTEC (Kuang Thousand Technology) for the test sample.
