The HEX 2.0 combines a proprietary state-of-the-art high performance thermoelectric module with an innovative heat exchanger. The small form factor CPU cooler pioneers a new category of cooling technology. The compact design comfortably fits in small chassis, including mini-ITX cases, while delivering cooling capacity beyond that of much larger coolers.

How noisy is the HEX 2.0? We’ve stacked up our thermoelectric CPU cooler against everyday noise sources to see how well it performs.
With a maximum sound level of a mere 32 dB, not only does the HEX 2.0 outperform the leading all-in-one liquid cooler, but it also produces significantly less noise than almost any other common object. This becomes even more obvious if you know that a small increase in decibels dramatically increases loudness - for example, 40 dB is almost twice as loud as 30 dB.
