Bij PCTweaker is een vergelijking te vinden van de Alpha P7125 en de Globalwin VOS32 koelers. De koelers zijn getest op een Asus K7V moederbord met een Athlon 650@800. De Globalwin bleek er net iets beter uit te komen:
Well it was a very close battle, a lot closer than I was expecting. I thought the Alpha might have just nicked it with the help of the copper inlay, but the size of the VOS32 seemed to make the difference. Obviously a lot of how a heatsink performs is down the aluminium alloy mix it uses and it looks like Global Win have just got it right.
Another telling point is the cost, in the U.K. the VOS32 sells for around £25($38) and is very easy to find, if you want to get hold of the Alpha in the U.K. it means ordering from the State's and then adding shipping costs for an approximate total of £50($76).
So with it's reasonable price, excellent performance, availability and not to forget the versatility of being able to use it with an Athlon, P2 or P3 the Global Win VOS32 takes the crown.
The Alpha was a good opponent, but just not good enough!
