JMC 400094 Socket 478 Heatsink Review
the days of the original Thermaltake Orb? Well this new heatsink from Austin
based JMC Products is sure to give you flash backs. The two heatsinks may appear
similar at first glance, but
underneath it all the are some big differences. JMC mainly supply OEM's
with heatsinks, so it shouldn't be much of a shock
when you hear that the volume dependent per-unit price of this cooler is
just $6-7USD. The ultimate destination for the JMC 400094 SkyJet 60 is
desktop servers, but we'll have to wait till after we
look at the thermal test results before we offer our own opinion.
The actual heatsink is composed of two parts; the
first being the central fined extrusion, and the second being the base plate.
The extrusion is press-fit into the baseplate through a 35mm diameter hole,
and the base plate is then sanded flat, and smooth.

heatsink is officially rated for Pentium 4 processors up to 64watts in power so
we will be stressing it just a little on our 100W test in just a second. But
then again, we've stressed every other heatsink to that level, so the comparison will be
interesting to say the least!
The assembly of
the JMC 400094 is pretty simple, but it's also worth a close look. The heatsink
has a small recess milled from the center of the finned extrusion which is where
the fan sits. When the power is switched on, the fan sucks in air from the top
and blows it out through the bottom of this small
recess, and through the fins.
Recess for the 60mm x 25mm
fan to sit into.
||The fan is nothing more than a motor attached to a
small frame. This assembly fits into the recess milled from the aluminum
