The test are over and I think the clear winner is the Alpha, still the king in cooling down that chip.  Although it did cool 2 degrees lower than the golden orb, is it worth it?

   The price for the Alpha is around $45, while the Orb is about $16 before shipping. For that extra amount of money, some may opt for it but if you're a cheap bastard like a lot of us here, the Golden Orb is a great choice for its quality and pricing.  By the way, stay away from the retail heatsink like a plague, it plain out sucks.

   Thanks to SubzeroPC for supplying the heatsinks in this review and thanks to  F1int7 and Chooie for help in testing and editing.  If you have any questions, please shoot an email over!
