Note: We have since changed our temperature measuring from using the onboard sensor on the motherboard, to using the CompuNurse, an external temperature probe.  This probe is situated right next to the CPU slug, so it provides the most precise temperature reading as possible.

   This unit comes with a 38CFM fan, which we did not replace since it's the same fan we use in our test bed.

   Our trusty old test rig is as follows:

  • IWill KK266 Socket A Motherboard

  • AMD Thunderbird 800Mhz CPU

  • Crucial PC133 CL2 Ram, 128MB

   The test will consist of an idle temperature check and a full load temperature check.  The full load will be accomplished by using the RC5 program and running 3DMark 2001 for 30 minutes.

   Here are some results:

   The unit performs rather well against the SK6 and MCX370, the units to beat in this Socket cooling competition.  Again, the unit is extra loud due to the Delta fan.  Like many other high powered units, the fan plays a big part in the cooling factor.

   Overall, the Micro Fin Technology from Dynatron seems to be working for them.  They have a few of their aluminum units incorporate the technology also to provide some good results.  The price tag of about $40 USD is not too bad also.  There are some units that are cheaper, so please choose wisely as to what you need for your own configuration.

   Many thanks to Heatsink Factory for sending us this new unit.  Always fun to test out a new unit every now and then : )



Pros:

  • Good performer
  • Micro Fin Technology, 60 total fins!
  • All Copper
  • Fast fan
  • Stiff clip once you put it on


  • Cons:

  • Loud fan
  • Clip can use a little work, would have been better if we could use our fingers to put the clip on instead of a screwdriver
