Bitspower Quietly Launches its First Ever Air CPU Cooler, The Phantomby Gavin Bonshor on February 28, 2022 5:00 PM EST
More known for its custom water cooling components, Bitspower has released its first-ever air-based CPU cooler, the Phantom. Designed for the entry-level market, the Phantom includes a single 120 mm RGB enabled cooling fan and supports Intel's latest LGA1700 desktop socket and AMD's AM4 socket.
With a height of 158 mm, the Phantom is compatible with most desktop cases. It is constructed of aluminum, with four copper heat pipes attaching the large aluminum fin stack to the cold plate. To aid in heat dissipation, it uses a single 120 mm cooling fan which includes RGB for users looking to add a bit of flair to their system. The cooling fan included has a maximum speed of 1800 RPM, which Bitspower claims the fan has an airflow rating of 80 CFM, and it operates with a maximum volume of 34 dBA.
The Bitspower Phantom CPU Cooler is installed onto a mini-ITX motherboard.
Despite the official listing on the Bitspower website not providing much information on specification and capability, I reached out to Bitspower CEO Vincent Yu and confirmed what the webpage leaves out. This includes the official dimensions of the Bitspower Phantom CPU cooler, which has a relatively small footprint of 116 x 51 x 158 mn. Vincent Yu also confirmed that the Bitspower Phantom could dissipate heat from most desktop processors, with a rated TDP of 200 W.
The Bitspower Phantom air cooler is available directly from its website for 1450 TWD. Still, Bitspower has confirmed to me that it will be available in other regions soon with an expected MSRP of $55.

Bern - Monday, February 28, 2022 - linkIt's just a hyper 212...
systemBuilder33 - Tuesday, March 1, 2022 - linkSounds 100% identical to ID Cooling SE-224-XT and looks identical, too! Except it costs 2x more (55 instead of $$7!)
flyingpants265 - Tuesday, March 1, 2022 - linkSnowman coolers are $12 USD.
jordanclock - Tuesday, March 8, 2022 - linkThe dimensions are different and this has copper heat pipes while the SE-224-XT seems to have aluminum. Or are they plated copper heat pipes?
But the fact that you immediately thought it was another very similar cooler suggests there isn't much to separate this from the rest of the market.
StevoLincolnite - Tuesday, March 1, 2022 - linkJust get a Hyper 212 and be done with.
jmke - Tuesday, March 1, 2022 - linkhow many variations of tower cooler with heatpipes can we make? that design has basically peaked many years ago. Only way to improve on that is to go the all-in-one water cooler units;
pure air cooling wise, tower cooler design that fits the case of your choice and that's the best you will get.
Oxford Guy - Tuesday, March 1, 2022 - linkIt’s not that simple but I agree that this is an example of too much competition in tech. Imagine if other areas would have even a fraction of the level of competition there is in conventional cooling.
Hxx - Tuesday, March 1, 2022 - linkthis is rated at 200W TDP...pff haha .... maybe if that fan can spin at 5K+ rpm
MDD1963 - Monday, March 28, 2022 - link'capable of dissipating 200 watts', huh? From a single stack/single fan air cooler *maybe* half the overall size of the Noctua NH-D15...? Call me officially 'skeptical'!
