Mar 04, 2002 - Frosty No.988
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Thermaltake's TFCFR06 "1U-Orb" was originally released sometime around the days of the golden Orb so it will be interesting to see how it stands up.


Thermaltake 1U DTFCF014-1 Heatsink Review
Mar 04, 2002 - Frosty No.987
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Everybody knows about Thermaltake, but most people don't know that this heatsink manufacturer also makes 1U heatsinks.


Titan TTC-MT3AB Heatsink Review
Feb 10, 2002 - Frosty No.965

Feb 08, 2002 - Frosty No.964
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


First impressions of heatsinks have a tendency to be swayed by how shiny or strange looking the heatsink is.


Chauh-Choung DTA-478 Socket 478 Heatsink Review
Feb 03, 2002 - Frosty No.957

Feb 03, 2002 - Frosty No.956

Jan 27, 2002 - Frosty No.949

Jan 21, 2002 - Frosty No.936
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Jan 21, 2002 - Frosty No.935

AVC 117160 Socket 478 Heatsink Review
Jan 20, 2002 - Frosty No.931
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The market of socket 478 heatsinks is thus quite a bit smaller than that of the socket heatsink market, but it is equally important to consumers.

Jan 15, 2002 - Frosty No.924
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Jan 07, 2002 - Frosty No.916
