The Thermaltake TMG IA1 is a new product for Thermaltake. While it does not support i7 1366 processors it does support nearly everything else. The tower structure has a unique fin design with 51 aluminum fins. The four copper heatpipes are cooled by a 120mm blue LED VR fan which supplies a little extra cooling around the sides since it doesn’t have a protective side panel.
I can’t really find the words to explain the unique fin design or even think of any resemblances. However it’s nice to see that Thermaltake has taken the time to display the product information on a smaller plaque which covers a small gap in the fin design near the fan. The U-shaped heatpipe design allows for the four heatpipes on either side to stick through the top of the stack.
The extreme fin design has plenty of sharp edges around the sides. I don’t believe these edges have any real cooling ability for the heatsink, but it sure makes a unique figure once the 51 fins are stacked together.
The 4, 6mm heatpipes have a relatively short distance between the heatsink and the fin stack. The piping is also equally spaced apart with what looks to be a minimalist approach to curves in the heatpipes.
The highly polished, mirror coated copper base is some of the most reflective we’ve seen in a while. The copper base matches up against a slab of aluminum; the four heatpipes run through the crossing of these two materials. The copper base is attached to the aluminum base via four small screws. The aluminum base has four screw holes which will be used to attach the mounting hardware.
