Ghz meldt: dat ze bij FrostyTech creatief bezig zijn geweest en een koperen homemade heatsink hebben gebouwd. Aangezien koper ongeveer 2x zo goed warmte geleid als aluminium lijkt het me wel duidelijk dat dit een van de beste heatsinks is die je op deze aardkloot kan vinden :
In its' final form, the Frosty CopperSink® has an aerodynamic look to it that would make any aluminum heatsink quake in its socket. Be assured this is no weakling. The CopperSink® weighs in at around half a pound, and measures over 50mm tall. With its fourteen fins spaced 3mm apart, airflow is excellent for cooling just about anything. The CopperSinks', solid copper construction makes it almost twice as efficient as a comparable aluminum heatsink in thermal conductivity to boot!
It took about a weekend to make this little beauty, and when we strapped it onto the back of our 500E we were pleasantly surprised by its performance. Keep in mind we tested it with only one 60mm X 10mm 15CFM fan. What kind of results did we see temperature wise? The temperature of the 500E ranged from about 1 to 3 degrees above room temp while overclocked to 667Mhz! That's only the beginning, expect to see more on how the Frosty CopperSink® helps us overclock that poor little 500E as far as it will go - once we get a better MB to test it on :-)
