AMD Athlon 64 Stock Heatsink with 4 Heat Pipes Tested

When it comes free of charge, it may not be bad or an underperformer. The new and improved heatsink from AMD retail pack 165 Opteron comes with 4 heat pipes, topped with 80 x 20mm delta fan with built in temp sensor that will reach 5,200 rpm when it is called for the tough job(s), yet runs quietly during light duty even at 800Mhz overclocked speed.

As good as XP-90, BUT what happens if you mount a real fan? Or what if you mount a real 80mm fan on the stock one?

I think that the 80mm used on the stock heatsink is thinner than the normal 25mm fans, resulting in less air pressure. I would also like to see that 92mm in 80mm frame from silverstone on it.

1) that is a fan as real as any fan.
2) 20mm is smaller or thinner than 25mm.
3) Air pressure is not soley govened by fan thickness
4) There is no point in mounting a 92mm fan on a Stock Cooler that is designed for 80mm mounting.

Few people mount an 80mm fan on the XP-90, most use a 92mm fan with the benefits that come with those.

Rutar valid point about having a COMPLETE test of ALL aspect, XP-90 can fit 92mm and might possible offer better performance/noise ratio. However the title of this article is not Thermalright XP-90 review the focus is on the stock cooling which is on par/better than XP-90 when both are used with same fan.

btw check PM please

Trust me, there are enough people out there using XP-90 + 92mm fan on their X2 rigs

92mm at 2800 (if I read that right) or 80mm at 5200

Does anyone know where one of these can be bought (cheap)? I'm looking to see the kind of performance one of these will have with a Panaflo H1A :O I already checked Ebay :/

You will have a wait a bit longer; most people will ditch the stock unit; Free of Charge can't be good.

If you are using DFI nF4 board with two temp sensor adjustment via SmartGuardian (the 3rd is used by the chipset); you could set the fan never to exceed 2,500 RPM by raising the full speed temp to max.

High rpm = high noise; before you make any decision, try the FREE fan first, why short change yourself
