are a Korean heatsink manufacturer, and have little exposure at the moment in
North America. I'd expect that to change as their "Pyramidal Inside
Cutting" becomes more well known. The Tocools S1 does not take advantage of
the triangular shaped base which has help to make heatsinks like the Novasonic one of the more powerful aluminum coolers
on the block. The S1 is a slightly older model, and one
which will probably never see wide production, but since we don't know
for certain, let's take a quick look at it now.
The body of the heatsink is machined aluminum, with each fin individually cut
from a solid block by what we can tell. On board is a 25x80x80 Delta fan
which rotates at 4000RPM, so it will be interesting to see just how well this
socket 478 heatsink is able to perform acoustically.

its large appearance, the S1 from Tocools fit inside of a standard Intel heatsink retention mechanism. Sadly, Tocools have opted to utilize
less than ideal wire clips to hold the heatsink
in place. They do work, but there isn't very much clipping force, and any significant
bumps to the computer chassis could very well knock one of the clips loose.
I'd seriously recommend Tocools make the catch mechanism a little more secure for the
S1, or use an entirely different type of clipping mechanism.
The two small pieces of wire, shown above,
clip onto one of the
plastic tabs of the heatsink retention mechanism, and then softly latch into the other one
on the opposite side.
