Default Thermalright ALX-800 vs his big brother the SP-97

We take a look at Thermalright's budget heatsink, the ALX-800 is compared the their top of the line Socket A cooler, does their little one stand a chance?

HOW WILL IT FIT ON MOTHERBOARDS WITH TRANSISTORS CLOSE TO THE SOCKET?

With a good case design in ventilation the SLK-800 or this ALX-800 with less weight is an ideal solution.

Like the AVC 117140 & JMC Phoenix designed three years ago for P4, this heatsink design despite a few years old remains one of the best.

They could change clothings and put in new packagings; a good heatsink is one that allows for transportation; ease of installation; easy on the hearing; better than the Free Retail Pack.

I got yesterday two of these little babies home (got them for a special price, less then 50 shipping included for both ).

It's true that finishing isn't it's strongest point, but it's still one hell of a heatsink. Now I need to buy the fans which go with it

Btw, on of the fins has a problem, it's stuck against another fin, closing a gap, fortunately, it's on the end of the heatsink...

You guys are really paying a lot more than us. I paid $18 +$5 shipping.

Yup, I know, and I'm glad cos it's a bargain for me

Well, I paid 46 for 2, while you would have paid 46$... Difference has to be checked with currency... But it won't be too much (I hope :wtf: )

Oh, my mistake; I didn't read the price was for two units.

And, yes, it performs damn well. I'd say the best price to performance ratio. It's the same performance comparing to SLK-800 based on my experience.
