Thermalright SI-97

@ 2004/11/25
Thermalright are renowned for their quality performance heatsinks throughout the enthusiast and overclocking community. Their latest offering for the aging but popular Socket A market, is the SI-97. In Thermalright terms, this is a different kind of heatsink. By abandoning the bolt-through retention mechanism in such a large heatsink, they have limited the use of this heatsink, creating a different market all together: the audiophobic enthusiast market. Today we'll see just how well it performs, in a range of different situations.

Can somebody tell me what HD defrag has to do with heatsink reviews?

"The system has not been defragged recently, although this was not deemed necessary by either windows or myself, so as to simulate a normal operating environment"
