Everyone knows Intel’s thermal performance hasn’t been great lately. I’m currently running one of the hottest in recent years, the 10900K. Thermaltake sent us an all-in-one cooler that might be able to tame this hot beast. The Thermaltake TH240 ARBG Sync. Check out the specs below, and then we’ll dive into some thermal testing using Blender.

The cooler got to me with no visible damage on the box. Installation, as with most all-in-one coolers, was fairly easy. Thermaltake provides everything you need in the box. Mounting hardware for Intel and AMD, two 120x120x25 mm PWM fans with ARBG, the radiator, cooling block/pump, and thermal paste. The hardest part was managing the cables so my build retains its clean look. I cleaned off the old thermal paste with alcohol and a paper towel and used the included thermal paste that Thermaltake provides.
