  We used the provided thermal grease in our testing, it is your basic run of the mill white stuff.  The testing was done in comparison with the retail Slot 1 heatsink.  The max speeds are stable system speeds of at least an hour.  I threw in some Alpha P3125 numbers just to spice things up:
Heatsink 550e(100FSB) IDLE 550e(100FSB)Full Load Max Speed
GW VOS32 88 F/ 31 C 105 F/ 40 C 150FSB/825mhz(1.70v)
Alpha P3125 86 F/ 30 C 105 F / 40 C 150FSB/825mhz(1.65v)
Standard110 F/ 43 C 124 F / 51 C 140FSB/770mhz(1.70v)

   The VOS32 does a very good job of getting that PIII Cooled!  Very on par with the other great Alpha cooler.  The only item that may be of interest is that it needed .05 more volts to keep it stable at 825MHz.

   At $28, this large cooler is a good deal only if you have the real estate on your motherboard.  On our Asus P3B-F, it blocked off 1 DIMM slot.  With a little squeezing, you may get it in...but I'm sure you wouldn't want to risk that : )

   Again, we would like to thank SubzeroPC for providing us with this sample! Go get yourself something and tell 'em Ed sent ya!


  • Lots of heatsink area to dissipate heat
  • Great performer for the price
  • Nice package of extras (thermal grease, 3pin splitter, etc.)


  • May be too large for some motherboards
  • Don't plan on moving much with this unless you tie this down!
