Cooling/CPU Cooling by piotke @ 2003-12-22

Exotic heatsinks. Some people buy them for the looks, others buy them for the performance. Which one suits your needs ? We reviewed the Scythe Kamakaze, Swiftech MCX478-V, Speeze EE429B0 CopperSnake and the Thermalright SLK947-U.

    Extra information

  • Hellow hansom ;-)
    The most remarkable is the fan and fan grill. The special design makes it perfect suitable to use the sink in a windowed case.
    On the base there’s some White grease pre-applied. I removed it because I wanted to test all the heatsinks with the same cooling paste. After the removal of it, you can see a perfect shiny base.

  • Installation
    Works the same as the Swiftech, but you don’t need so much pressure. It’s goes really softly.
