Default Arctic Cooling Super Silent 2L Athlon XP HSF Review

Arctic Cooling has a line of low cost coolers covering S478 and S462. Previously we looked into the 4Pro L, and today we will examine the 2L for Athlon XP

Do you know this heatsink when used with Chill Vent produces a 8-10C lower CPU temp?
The same rig is still in placed since the test (5 months).
The explanation may well be the low C/W of the heatsink when air density increased (pressure) it performs much better.

I question the usefulness of the low fan setting
I don't realy agree with that. AC mentions that the low setting is for max. a 2500+ (~68.3W), and your cpu is overclocked and creates about 90W !. That almost 20W above that max. this HS can handle.

The lowest setting is for those who wants a silent computer with less power.

But, great article

I am still using it; despite the fact that I have all kinds of heatsinks here.
For low noise and decent performance; I did not believe it for a few weeks. Wrote to Scythe and have never heard any reply.
