Swiftech has brought their Flower Power heatsink to Athlon 64 platform, and with it they have once again proven that temperatures aren’t everything, thanks to the big copper base of the MCX6400-V it allows for overclocking almost on par with the best out there.
Temperature wise it trails Thermalright’s offering with 1-6°C when using different fans, combining this heatsink with a high output fan will increase the performance considerably, equaling the performance of water-cooling at the cost of high noise.
But don’t worry, even with silent fans this heatsink will be able to keep your CPU from crashing when the temperature out there is rising.
This heatsink can be bought at swiftnets.com
for about 55 $ (~ € 50).PRO
No motherboard removal required
No 92 mm fan bracket included by default
We would like to thank Gabe and Michelle from Swiftech
for providing the review unit!
