    Pros & Cons

    Pros

    • All aluminum design is very light
    • Fan mount is great
    • fan is really quiet
    • Fan is low-draw model and can be hooked onto motherboard
    • inexpensive

    Cons

    • Poor performance respectively

    Conclusion

    Well, I think the numbers here speak for themselves, the Volcano 5 doesn't hold its own in the beat-down testing. Hopefully the Volcano 6 fares better. The 6Cu and 6Cu+ are up next for testing, lets see if thermaltake can pull it off with one of those guys.
