Ajigo MF014021 Copper Heatsink Review
MF014021 is virtually identical to the Ajigo SF017011 save for a slightly larger fan
and better finished base. With
that in mind we should be expecting equivalent, or perhaps slightly
better performance. If you haven't heard of Ajigo don't worry, they are
still relatively new to the cooling marketplace from a consumer
The company is based out of
California and originally specialized in designing
custom heatsinks. The company is intent on designing "products that perform well, using
the latest improvements in cooling technology." According to their website the designers at
Ajigo "design coolers for optimal performance and do not incorporate any designs just
for the sake of appearance or novelty."
What does that mean to you and me? Well simply put,
Ajigo try to make heatsinks that work and that's it. There will be no shiny
copper plating, no blue-LED packing fan, no fluff.
The MF014021 incorporates
a nickel plated copper base with nickel plated aluminum fins soldered on.

to attach the aluminum fins to the copper base both metals are plated in
nickel. Nickel plating also protects the copper base from oxidation,
and as a bonus, provides a smoother mating surface for the processor
Unlike some other heatsinks
which use a small flap of crimped copper to hold the fan shroud in place, the Ajigo
MF014021 uses small stainless steel pegs. These pegs hold the aluminum shroud firmly in place and mean
it is less likely for the assembly to come loose.
