Default Thermalright SP-94 Copper Heatpipe Heatsink

Liquid3D and I take an extensive look at Thermalright latest and possibly greatest P4 heatsink!


Quote:
Thermalright has certainly kept their eye on the ball lately, and they´ve scored yet again with their latest offering, the SP-94. This marks Thermalright´s ingress into heat-pipe technology, and they've made a distinguished entrance. The SP94 is an all copper thin-fin cooler, the embodiment of which centres around their SLK series. From what your about to see, Thermalright has truly raised heat-sink manufacture, to an art form.
We compare it to the SLK-947U and SLK-900U in this article.

Wow, great stuff!

It's very impressive that it beats the SLK900 by approx 2 degrees, but the SLK900U has the advantage of being both AMD & Intel cooler.

Is the SP94 being sold in belgium yet?

I will put the SP-94 further to test the coming days by upping the vcore and see how much I can overclock my poor little 2.4

the P4 has an onboard temp diode which we used for the measurements, it portrays the exact cpu temperature more correctly.

ooops! ... why does the heatsink have such a rough surface?

Look at that surface! uke:
You can clearly see the machine marks in the scanner image, yet
the reviewer has praise for how "smooth" it is. ... huh?! :wtf:

Hasn't the reveiwer seen a really smooth contact surface? :wtf:

the scanner image surpasses that of most digicams, and even if I would scan a "smooth" / "lapped" heatsink, you will see the same marks
at 1600DPI things become pretty big , and the smallest groove can be seen as if it were huge

here are the L1 bridges of an AXP @ 1600DPI
:grin:

it would be impossible to compare it to the Swiftech MCX462-V... as it is a Socket A heatsink

the Intel version will be released very soon.
