Akasa Announces The Vegas Chroma CPU Cooler With ARGB Lighting
Akasa has rolled out the Vegas Chroma line of top-flow CPU coolers which come in two variants based on the two most popular CPU sockets supports. The Vegas Chroma LG supports Intel LGA115x sockets, and the Vegas Chroma AM offers support for AMD's AM4 and AM3+ sockets.
Akasa has rolled out two models of the Vegas Chroma line, the Vegas Chrome LG and Vegas Chroma AM for Intel and AMD sockets, respectively
The design of this cooler is very similar to Intel's stock HSF for desktop processors, and this CPU cooler utilizes an anodized aluminum heatsink with spirally-projecting fins, which are cooled by a 120 mm fan. This design helps the airflow from the heatsink ends up ventilating other components around the CPU socket, such as VRM heatsink, M.2 heatsink, and possibly even memory.
The lighting on this fan is compatible with all major motherboards RGB software, like ASUS Aura Sync, and Razer Chroma RGB, ASRock Polychrome Sync, and MSI Mystic Light Sync. The RGB fan blades illuminate your PC with upwards of 16.8 million color options.
This heatsink utilizes a hydraulic bearing fan; this fan uses a 4-pin PWM for its primary function and a 3-pin ARGB for the lighting effects. The LEDs are embedded in the hub of the translucent white fan blades; in both variants, the fan has a speed range between 500 RPM to 1,800 RPM. This fan can push up to 51.3 CFM of air with a noise level of 32.5 dBA.
The AM4 CPU cooler variant measures 120 mm x 120 mm x 63 mm in height while the Vegas Chroma LG CPU cooler measures 120 mm x 120 mm x 59mm in height. The Vegas Chroma LG CPU cooler utilizes a motherboard backplate, which brings the overall weight of the Intel variant to 380 g while the AM4 variant weighs just 340 g. Since the Vegas Chroma LG variant utilizes a backplate to mount the CPU cooler makes this variant a total of three pieces while the Vegas Chroma AM variant is just two pieces. Sadly, looking at both product pages doesn't reveal what the pricing for these CPU coolers is expected to be.
