CPU Heatsink Roundup Q1 2006

In our first roundup of the year we compare 21 popular heatsinks from different manufactures. Heat pipes, Fan-less, Copper and Aluminum, close to 12kg of heatsink put through extensive tests and compared to the new AMD stock cooling.

Good work on the HSF round up. Really makes it nice to see all the HSF next to eachother for easy comparison.

Nice roundup!

So if I'm reading this right the best all around HSFs are:

Arctic Cooling 64
Scythe Shogun + Ninja

right?

nope; like said in the article

"the overall thought is the same as last time; Iím unable to come up with ONE winner as most top performance heatsinks are so closely matched that with an acceptable margin of error these rankings can be mixed up."

+ these heatsinks may rank different if you have another case with other case fans set up.

Actually, Custom PC had a recent HSF review and the Arctic Cooling 64 and Scythe Ninja were top performers too.

well, my INOFFICAL "king of the hill" ranking is:


TT BT if you need a heatsink with fan and are willing to spend a bit more

Scythe Ninia with 4 Papst GLL fans, if you really want the best and are willing to ruin yourself

Freezer 64 Pro if you're on budget but need OC headroom

I'm afraid they put big reviews on the web page after 4 months they've been in the magazine.
