Dec 19, 2003 - Frosty No.1503
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Surprisingly, the all aluminum Jetart JAP416A follows in the footsteps of the performance heatsinks and manages to offer very competitive thermal performance statistics indeed.


Jetart JAP407A Copper Pentium 4 Heatsink Review
Dec 19, 2003 - Frosty No.1502
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


On the plus side, the JAP407A boasts a nice machined base, copper fins, and a good strong 25mm thick fan up top.

Dec 15, 2003 - Frosty No.1497

TS Heatronics NCU-1000 Pentium 4 Heatsink Review
Nov 01, 2003 - Frosty No.1486
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


This is technically a 'zero noise' heatsink - a cooler which in and of itself produces exactly 0 dBA of noise.


Aopen ACP4LC Pentium 4 Heatsink Review
Oct 26, 2003 - Frosty No.1482
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Aopen's fan adaptor allows an 80mm Nidec fan to mount to the 70mm heatsink frame. The point of this, is of course to reduce the noise created by the fan by using a larger and slower rotating impeller.


Auras T6C Pentium 4 Heatsink Review
Oct 22, 2003 - Frosty No.1480
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


When it comes to a new heatsink from an obscure company, it never pays to assume anything.

nPowerTek TTIC NPH-1 Heatpipe Heatsink Review
Sep 15, 2003 - Frosty No.1464
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The heatsink looks fairly unremarkable from the outside, but at the center sits a 25mm diameter copper heatpipe which gives the NPH-1 some really serious kick.


Verax P16Cu Silent Pentium4 Heatsink Review
Sep 12, 2003 - Frosty No.1463

The NXP205 fan controllers maintain the four dials with blue LED black lights, but this time around the package is much smaller.


Arkua 8456X-8T Pentium 4 Heatsink Review
Sep 07, 2003 - Frosty No.1460
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The 8456X-8T ranks in at 46.5 dB in our acoustic tests, and even with the large 80mm fan this Arkua heatsink is hardly aiming for the performance markets.


Arctic Cooling Super Silent 4 Pro Heatsink Review
Sep 07, 2003 - Frosty No.1461
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


A passive heatsink is always going to be the worlds one and only zero noise producing cooler, but the real prize is the zero noise active heatsink.

Sep 07, 2003 - Frosty No.1459
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Heatpipes have been finding their way into more and more heatsinks for a couple of very good reasons.


Spire SP411C5 QuieTude II Heatsink Review
Sep 01, 2003 - Frosty No.1454
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


At 300RPM the SP411C5 is good in the noise department, but at higher temperatures it can get somewhat loud.


Taisol CEP447181 Pentium 4 Heatsink Review
Sep 01, 2003 - Frosty No.1456
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Given the 70mm size, the fan is remarkably un-quiet - which can only indicate that the Taisol CEP447181 isn't a pushover.


Spire SP420B8 CopperStream P4 Heatsink Review
Sep 01, 2003 - Frosty No.1455
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The fins come off the assembly line interlocked with one anther via small tabs and the entire fin assembly is soldered to the copper base plate.

Jun 30, 2003 - Frosty No.1393

Globalwin CAK4-88T Copper Heatsink Review
Jun 29, 2003 - Frosty No.1300
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Since the copper skive portion of the Globalwin CAK4-88T is just 70mm in size, Globalwin have added an 80mm-70mm fan adaptor.

If done properly, the copper will ultimately increase the surface area of the heat source enticing quicker transmission to the outer fins more effectively.


Vantec Spectrum UV LED Case Fans Review
Jun 23, 2003 - Frosty No.1416
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Vantec's adaptation of that idea is certainly a lot cleaner and less expensive route to take - and no cold cathode is required.


Evercool NW9F715CA Pentium 4 Heatsink Review
Jun 22, 2003 - Frosty No.1415
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The heatsink breaks with tradition and features an extruded aluminum heatsink with soldered-in copper base insert.

Jun 21, 2003 - Frosty No.1423

Spire BFA07B2 Copper Core Heatsink Review
Jun 20, 2003 - Frosty No.1422
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Based on an older design which did not feature a copper insert, the BFA07B2 can almost be considered a second generation heatsink.


CoolJag JVC661A V-Type Pentium 4 Heatsink Review
Jun 13, 2003 - Frosty No.1406
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Aluminum extrusions have typically been the most popular option, but within the last year and a half skiving has come to market and been adopted widely.

Thermalright SLK-900U Copper Heatsink Review
May 28, 2003 - Frosty No.1396
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Given these two different sizes of fans, rotational speeds, and CFM output it will be interesting to see just how the Thermalright SLK900U reacts thermally!


Cooljag JVC258A V-Type Copper Base Heatsink Review
May 02, 2003 - Frosty No.1385
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Not only does the upwards expansion out allow the heatsink to come equipped with a larger fan, but it also helps induce efficient exhaust judging by the looks of it.

Apr 29, 2003 - Frosty No.1383
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Dynatron DC1U-B02 1U Copper Heatsink Review
Apr 20, 2003 - Frosty No.1376
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Apr 17, 2003 - Frosty No.1377
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Apr 10, 2003 - Frosty No.1367
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Based on similar techniques which were used by Agilent Technologies for their Arcticooler heatsinks a while back, the JMC 400124 Phoenix 60 even carries the same logo.

Apr 03, 2003 - Frosty No.1363
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks
