    True black 120 Thermalright NEW?

    Just noticed this on Thermalrights site:

    Ultimate CPU Cooling Solutions! USA

    Sorry if it has already been mentioned.

    Mmmhhh Goth - TR120 should cool better in black!

    Not sure that it will. Won't the black coating form some insulation, and therefore inhibit cooling?

    Does look good though.

    Re: True black 120 Thermalright NEW?

    Black surfaces release more radiation than metallic surfaces but that isnt the main method of heat transfer. Most of the heat transfer is direct conduction into the air which carries the heat away. The black surface may impede this.

    It does look cool and i doubt thermalright would release a poor performing product.

    There are loads black motherboard boards, graphics cards, soundcards, PSUs, case interiors, HDDs, fans… No black heatsinks until now.

    It`s just a coloured form of nickelplating, so at worst it will (should) perform the same & (hopefully) as Flewis says: "Black surfaces (particularly matt finish, I think) release more radiation than metallic (shiny/reflective) surfaces", we can only hope.
