Well here we go again.
I have finally got round to testing this heatsink, after having it
sit in front of me for a while I have realized how different this
heatsink is to any other manufacturers heatsink. It has a similar
design to the Thermosonic Thermoengine, both consist of a large core
up the middle with fins comings out of the core. Another thing about
this heatsink is the way that it takes advantage of the 4hole on most
AMD and P4 motherboards, but if you do not have these holes the heatsink
is useless to you (I will tell you more about this later). Lets get
in and have a closer look at the whole package.
The heatsink comes
in a slightly larger box than most but this is due to its large
size and also because you get everything you need in the one box.
Inside the box you will find the heatsink, Thermal grease, 2 packets
of screws, set of cardboard washers a set of spare parts and 2 noiseless
connectors along with a user manual (not pictured)
This heatsink is similar to the
CNPS3100 flower in the way that it is a group of copper fins bolted
together by 2 aluminum blocks, what this does is it pushes the fins
so they are that tightly packed that they form a smooth base which
means that if you ever think of lapping this heatsink then you are
mad as you will never get the base smoother than it is.
Now we have looked at the design lets have a look at the spec's
of this thing.
