AeroCool Intros the Mirage 5: Looks Like an AIO Block, But it's Not

At first glance, the new AeroCool Mirage 5 looks like an overgrown AIO CLC CPU block, with its puck shape, glass top, and an infinite-reflection RGB ornament, but it's not. It's a cylindrical, tower-type CPU air cooler. The CPU base features a tiny bit of aluminium finnage. From here, five 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes make direct contact with the CPU, conveying heat to a stack of ring-shaped anodized aluminium fins. The fin-stack is ventilated by a high-RPM 60 mm lateral flow fan with a somewhat cylindrical impeller, located underneath the top-plate.

This fan spins between 1,200 to 3,000 RPM, pushing between 39.7 to 74.3 CFM of air-flow, with 0.91 to 2.13 mm H₂O static pressure. AeroCool claims the noise output ranges between 18 to 30 dBA for this fan, since this isn't just another 60 mm fan, but a cylindrical impeller that happens to have a low diameter when viewed from the top. The fan features a hydraulic bearing, and is rated for 60,000 hours MTBF. The cooler measures 100 mm x 100 mm x 145 mm (WxDxH). AeroCool claims that the Mirage 5 can handle thermal loads of up to 150 W TDP. Among the CPU socket types supported are LGA2066, LGA1200, LGA115x, and AM4. The company didn't reveal pricing or availability.

Interesting to see designs going back to the "spire style" of coolers with internal fans.  Really curious on the actual real-world noise levels on this and if they keep it under 30 dBA which can be seen as the equivalent of "a low-voice conversation."

Also 150 W of cooling potential seems a little optimistic from me, but maybe with case airflow helping it, we will see.

This cooler might not be the best match for a RTX 3000 Founder's card though...
