Titan TTC-MS2AB Heatsink Review
May 30, 2001 - Frosty No.703
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Titan heatsinks seemed to first make themselves known to the cooling world near the end of 2000.


Neng Tyi KA06 Cu-Al Heatsink Review
May 29, 2001 - Frosty No.700
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


An outer frame of thicker aluminum plate provides the means for the Nidec fan to be attached and keep the aluminum fins in place. The fins are formed in such a way that they are all interlocked.


CPUfx Core Heatsink Review
May 28, 2001 - Frosty No.699
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Right out of the box "The Core" just has to win the coolest-looking heatsink award.


Cooler Master DP5-5F11 Heatsink Review
May 23, 2001 - Frosty No.697
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Like all coolers, what was once good can become dated rather quickly. The Cooler Master DP5-5F11 seeks to change that.


Blizzard S370 Copper Heatsink Review
May 22, 2001 - Frosty No.694
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Like the its brother the S370-L, the Blizzard S370 sports a set of thick copper fins, and a solid copper construction.


Vantec FCE-6030D Heatsink Review
May 20, 2001 - Frosty No.692
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


We found it interesting to note that with this heatsink a high aspect ratio fin design was implemented. In the past we've only ever seen this type of fin density on TEC-specific coolers.


Neng Tyi SN03 Copper Heatsink Review
May 15, 2001 - Frosty No.688
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


At a listed weight of 666 grams you have wonder if black magic wasn't involved in the creation of this devilishly heavy copper heatsink from Neng Tyi.


Globalwin CAK38 Copper Heatsink
May 13, 2001 - Frosty No.684
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Right now the Globalwin CAK38 is one of the top-tier copper socket A coolers available. It weighs in at 450g and comes with an almost unbeatable 6800 RPM Delta 60mm fan.


Swiftech MC462-A Rev1 Heatsink Review
May 09, 2001 - Frosty No.680
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The SwiftTech MC462-A Rev1. It's a 38.5x76x77mm aluminum pin and 9mm thick copper base - monster of a heatsink.


Behind the makings of a FrostySink
May 05, 2001 - Frosty No.677
Category: Editorial


While it's always great fun to be able to test out the latest and coolest heatsinks we also like to try and make our own coolers from time to time...


Thermoengine Comparison - Solid vs. Hollow
May 04, 2001 - Frosty No.674
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Just as quickly as Thermosonic's ThermoEngine entered the cooling market, it has since managed to get itself into controversy.


Globalwin CPS25603-16 Heatsink Review
Apr 30, 2001 - Frosty No.670
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Choosing an OEM class heatsink means you get an inexpensive heatsink with questionable performance characteristics.


Thermaltake DU0462-9 Mini Copper Orb
Apr 29, 2001 - Frosty No.669
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The mini copper Orb is a departure from the successful cylindrical fin design with its integrated thick copper slug for a base.


Zalman CNPS3000 FHS Heatsink
Apr 29, 2001 - Frosty No.668
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


There are two variety of copper fined heatsinks from the Korean company, Zalman. The first, the CNPS3100 has about 50 fins, and weighs in at 296 grams, the second is this heatsink the CNPS3000.


Zalman ZM-MFC1 Fan Speed Controller Review
Apr 17, 2001 - Frosty No.1373
Category: Cases


The ZMMFC1 comes with four fan speed channels and a side of two extra channels that operate auxiliary devices at either 12V or 5V.


Zalman CNPS3100G Gold FHS Heatsink
Apr 15, 2001 - Frosty No.636
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Gold heatsinks? Yes that's right, gold-plated heatsinks are officially here. What could be better than a gold plated heatsink for that ultra-chic look.


Cooler Master DP5-6H11 Heatsink Review
Apr 15, 2001 - Frosty No.637
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


There are countless heatsinks to choose from when faced with a bare OEM Duron or T-Bird these days.


Thermoengine V60-4210 Heatsink Review
Apr 12, 2001 - Frosty No.634
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Of all the heatsinks we reviewed, the Thermoengine is one of the most uniquely designed, and most effective.


Zalman CNPS2005 FHS Heatsink
Apr 11, 2001 - Frosty No.632
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Zalman heatsinks are one of the rare breed which really challenge the notion of what a heatsink is supposed to be.


Zalman CNPS3100 Copper FHS Heatsink
Apr 07, 2001 - Frosty No.627
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Every day I look at the number of heatsinks surfacing in the consumer market and everyday I am always surprised by at least one or two.


GlobalWin WBK-38 Heatsink Review
Apr 03, 2001 - Frosty No.624
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


What better heatsink to top off the newly release 900Mhz Duron than the GlobalWin WBK-38?


Blizzard S370-L Copper Heatsink Review
Mar 27, 2001 - Frosty No.601
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


It may not immediately be obvious that the entire heatsink is slanted 5 degrees, but if you look carefully you'll see the tilt.


Twin Turbo Heatsink Review
Mar 17, 2001 - Frosty No.595
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Whenever I hear about the 'Overclockerz Store' I sometimes wonder if the OCZ fellows don't spend their entire day trying to make simple little heatsinks into daemons of cooling prowess.


Thermal Compound Review: Quicksilver
Mar 09, 2001 - Frosty No.587
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


If you've ever installed a fancy new heatsink on your processor then you know thermal compound can be very influential to cooling.


Neng Tyi P365 Lil' Turbine Heatsink Review
Feb 28, 2001 - Frosty No.571
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


One good way to do that is to slap on a massive copper heatsink with a massive Nidec Beta SL fan. At this point the only thing cooler would be to turn off your machine...


Thermaltake Volcano II Review
Feb 26, 2001 - Frosty No.565
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


This isn't quite what you expect to see when you hear the name Thermaltake, but this square heatsink is indeed one of theirs.


Neng Tyi K612 Cu/Al Heatsink Review
Feb 18, 2001 - Frosty No.555
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


In this review we take a look at a hybrid copper / aluminum cooler designed to handle AMD T-bird's and Coppermine processors.


Vantec FCE-62540D Heatsink Review
Feb 15, 2001 - Frosty No.554
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


When we first got this cooler we were a little taken back by the sheer size of it... When we plugged it in we knew by the sound of the fan, that the FCE-62540D meant business.


Ascent AC300-4P Heatsink Review
Feb 05, 2001 - Frosty No.549
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Ascent makes the kind of heatsinks you'll see sitting on a shelf at your local computer store. This little guy, the AC300-4P caught our eye a while ago on a recent parts hunting trip.


Neng Tyi Subete Doda Review
Jan 31, 2001 - Frosty No.546
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Neng Tyi may not be on the tip of most hard core cooling fanatics minds' but what it lacks in brand recognition it makes up for in power... solid copper power!


Thermaltake Super Orb Review
Jan 22, 2001 - Frosty No.542
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Ahh The SuperORB... giant among heatsinks everywhere, round and strange in design, and holder of the best "price vs. performance" title for a heatsink.


Cooler Master CH5-5K12 Heatpipe Heatsink
Jan 11, 2001 - Frosty No.532
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


With out a doubt this has to be the coolest and most deadly looking piece of cooling hardware to ever grace a computers' processor!


Socket 370/A Heatsink Review
Jan 04, 2001 - Frosty No.506
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


OEM heatsinks are known not so much for their amazing performance but for their affordability and offers of decent cooling performance.


Thermal Buster Heatsink Review
Jan 03, 2001 - Frosty No.505
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Amidst all the confusion a radical new cooling concept has arisen. The Thermal Buster from KingCooler Metal Technologies.....


Cooling Fundamentals: Beware the CPU fan of DEATH!
Nov 22, 2000 - Frosty No.473
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


A few of us have smelt the acrid odor of melting plastic emanating from the depths of a computer. Thankfully not all of us have had to buy a new processor the very next day...


Thermaltake Blue Orb Chipset Cooler
Nov 08, 2000 - Frosty No.434
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


New RAM, new CPU's and such are very interesting, however, the most "exciting" and interesting products usually revolve around overclocking.


Frostytech Cooling Fundamentals: Dusty Computers
Oct 05, 2000 - Frosty No.388
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Chances are if you've had your computer for more than six months there is some level of dust inside. While dust under the couch may be bad to look at dust in the computer can cause problems.


AOS Non-Silicon Thermal Compound Review
Sep 25, 2000 - Frosty No.378
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


A majot part of every overclockers' toolkit should be a nice assortment of thermal pastes. For most of us, those little packs that come with better heatsinks make up our collection of pastes.


Frostytech Fatty Case Mods
Sep 13, 2000 - Frosty No.365
Category: Cases


What better way to modify the Fatty Case then by drilling it full of big, and I mean big holes. With all those tiny vents it was practically asking for it anyway.


Overclocking with the Frostytech ACPSink
Sep 09, 2000 - Frosty No.360
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


It's one of a kind design was as of yet unproven, so the time to prove it had arrived. In moments we would bolt the ACPsink onto a 550 Mhz Athlon to see if all the hard work had not been in vain.


Frostytech ACPSink
Sep 09, 2000 - Frosty No.359
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Frosty ACPSink is a one of a kind Athlon heatsink. It's made from an aluminum plate and sixty-odd sections of imbedded copper pipe.


Athlon Overclocking Card
Aug 31, 2000 - Frosty No.352
Category: CPU / Processors


At this time in the AMD overclocking world, the GFD is beginning to look as old as PC100 RAM (I guess that's why Mac's have to look so stylish...).


SuperparaMagnetic Effect - Hard Drive Storage Technology
Jul 21, 2000 - Frosty No.302
Category: Editorial


Of all computer components, probably the greatest rate of evolution belongs to the stalwart hard drive, but something called superparamagnetic effect may soon bring an end to this golden age.


Liberator 2 GFD Review
Jul 08, 2000 - Frosty No.291
Category: Overclocking


GFD's have been around for a while, this powerless GFD proved to be a challenge, and in the end did something we never expected it to..


Overclocking with Frostytech CuPins Heatsink
Jun 28, 2000 - Frosty No.278
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


For those without the guts to make their own heatsinks, here are all the overclocking results with the Frosty CuPins Heatsink.. impressive..


Frostytech CopperPins Heatsink
Jun 28, 2000 - Frosty No.277
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


There is nothing like the sight of a solid copper heatsink atop ones' heavily overclocked CPU.... in fact is there anything comparable? We made one, then tested it.


Frostytech Computer Test Platform
Jun 27, 2000 - Frosty No.275
Category: Overclocking


Basically this is an old XT case which as been converted to become a super-usefull test case. Get to the guts in under 1 second!


RJ-45 Crimpers Review
Jun 23, 2000 - Frosty No.270
Category: Networking


Plastic Ethernet crimpers may be cheap but they don't always work. These metal ones crimp cables fast and perfectly everytime. Which is much better than cheap :)


Alpha FC-PAL35 Review
Jun 18, 2000 - Frosty No.259
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Alpha's with copper and aluminum are like... damn good companions. The FC-PAL35 is one worth having a good long look at.


Lasagna BGA cooler
Jun 16, 2000 - Frosty No.258
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Lasagna coolers have been popping up on the finer BGA chipsets out there, too bad OEM's aren't taking notice. Any way, read our review and see if it right for you.
