Jan 03, 2008 - Frosty No.2227

Glacialtech Igloo 5750 Silent Heatsink Review
Dec 27, 2007 - Frosty No.2217
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

The idea is that one relatively low RPM fan is going to have a hard time maintaining a good volume of airflow through the heatsinks' fins, so the second helps draw the warmed air through and alleviate any loss in velocity.

Scythe Infinity SCINF-1000 Heatsink Review
Dec 14, 2007 - Frosty No.2214
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

At least we would assume all that is accurate after testing the Scythe Infinity heatsink... The Infinity is a big heatsink for sure; it stands 155mm tall, 125mm wide and about 114mm deep with its 120mm 1200RPM fan. The scale tips at 960 grams, or just short of a kilogram.

Dec 10, 2007 - Frosty No.2207
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

The Thermalright MST-9775 LE is a two-heatpipe heatsink, and it doesn't have all that much in the way of surface area for cooling. The compact heatsink measures a modest 90mm tall, about 110mm square. It weighs 430grams.
