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
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.
