Default Scythe Shogun CPU Heatsink

Surprisingly, we encountered absolutely no problems when mounting this heatink on this Socket 478 system. After attaching the fixing plates to the bottom of the heatsink, and applying the thermal paste, we simply set the heatsink atop the processor and used the Socket 478 clips to keep it in place with the stock retention frame. Although OTES was clear of any gridlocks, we found the Scythe Shogun practically touching the Northbridge heatsink. However, when we threw the 120mm fan back on, the CPU heatsink still fit and the active Chipset heatsink was free to spin. Like all of our recent CPU cooling reviews, we allowed the system to idle for 30 minutes followed by stressing the system with CPUBurn-In v1.00 for the same amount of time. LM_Sensors in conjunction with GKrellM 2.2.4 monitored the CPU temperature. During testing, our room temperature was a warm 31C. In our testing, the rheostat fan controller on the Shogun was maxed to its full potential. For comparison purposes, we also tested the Speeze CopperSnake III.

Idle Load C
Scythe Shogun: 52.5 68.0
Speeze CopperSnake III: 54.5 76.5

This is what I call "true" testing under not so ideal situation

Yeap. If money for water-cooling is short, I'm lining this one to be my next HSF.

Unless someone can suggest a better HSF ?

Unless the temp sensors were inaccurate which is usual with IC7 boards. those temps are too high even at 31C room temp.
