Default CPU Heatsink Roundup April 2007

We continue our testing of the latest CPU heatsinks on our reference system, this time new contestants from Coolermaster and Scythe enter the fray. Whether you’re looking for extreme silence or extreme performance, this roundup will help you decide.

I hear the Darth Vader theme everytime I see the Gemini altough the results are quite a dissapointment =O

So it's time you get the dual 140 heatsink from Thermalright.

why do you find the results for the GeminII a disappointment?

It is barely able to beat the Tuniq and the Ninia when using the second best fan on the market for noise performance. If you use 2 120s on the Ninia it will most likely annihilate it.

Hence, I assume that the fin or heatpipe design is flawed so Thermalright needs some better engineers as they simply are outclassed by Scythe and Tuniq.

Have they lost anyone in the past year so we have a Oskar Wu situation?


Can you get ahold of a pair of Silent Eagles? I'm sure Sharkoon would like their product to appear in more reviews, as it deserves it for being the best fan on the market.

GeminII is Coolermaster fyi it's build for high performance, so logically, that it will fall behind when used with slower CFM fans; the design is not meant for this.
Coolermaster has another new Tower heatsink coming with 120mm support which will maybe challenge the Ninja and others alike

Sharkoon fan-wise, I'm testing with the amount of fans standard provided, I started with the NCB, need to continue with that one, otherwise I can start from scratch

oops


The age of Tornados and Deltas is over since the XP-120 came out so it is pretty much pointless to optimize it for noisy fans, especially since the Tower heatsinks max out a CPU already if you use those noisy fans.

the idea behind the GeminII was to cool mosfets, chipsets, ram too, so I heard

Is there a possibility to test the Thermalright Ultra 120 (extreme or normal version) in the near future?
These seem to beat the Tuniq Tower and be very very silent (up to the point where one could use one without a fan on a non-oc'd E6600).

Just an idea of course

I tested it here: http://www.madshrimps.be/?action=getarticle&articID=496 while I'm sure it performs lovely with high speed fans, at low CFM the Ultra doesn't shine

If you like passive cooling, the Ninja is optimized for low speed fans or passive use with large fin spacing.

that's the benefit of the test setup used by madshrimps, it uses fans that would be considered quiet by the majority of users and that is what most people want today
