Our installation was made on our AMD T-Bird test rig.  It consists of:
  • IWill KK266
  • AMD Thunderbird 800
  • Crucial PC133 128MB CL2 Sdram
  • EVGA GF2 MX 32MB AGP Video Card
  • Windows 98SE

   One of the first things after inspecting the heatsink is the nice polished surface.  A good plus for maximum cpu/heatsink contact.

   To our TBird, we applied some arctic silver thermal paste to get the best contact between the cpu and the aluminum heatsink.

   Something that more heatsink manufacturers should follow is the addition of that black plastic covering on the heatsink clip.  It sure eases the pain on your finger when you are pressing the clip down.  In addition to that, the plastic cover gives you more of a leverage on the clip which makes it easier to press onto the cpu notch on your motherboard.  Something we did notice that should be looked after is that the cpu clip, while it secures down easily, is not very tight.  We were able to move the heatsink around while it was clipped to the motherboard.  Not a big deal for the computers that do not travel, but for people who bring their boxes to LAN parties or what not, this may be something you would want to take precaution about.

   The molex connector from the fan attached easily to the molex connector from our power supply.  No problems in that department.
