Bij 3DHardware is een review te vinden van de AlphaC-MHO-FAN cooler voor FC-PGA processors. De prijs is wat aan de hoge kant maar over de performance valt niks te klagen:
For the tests we have used the Coppermine 550E @ 800mhz system. At the first boot up, I was very pleased to see that the temperature was only 28C. After about 20 minutes of web surfing, Word etc. the temperature only went up to 30C! (Compared to 34C on the Golden Orb and 40C on the stock cooler). This is only around 2 degrees over the room temperature, which proves that the cooler worked as advertised. But of course, what really puts any cooler to it's limits is intensive 3d tests. So we fired up QIII and let it run for about ½ an hour doing time-demos. To our surprise the CPU didn't go over 36C (compared to 40C on the Golden Orb, and 45C on the Stock cooler). As you can see, these are quite some impressive scores, but again, they come at quite a hefty price. The next test we did was the overclocking test. We have put the CPU at 880mhz and see how long it took for it to crack down. The record, till now, was held by the Golden Orb at 2 hours. So, we left 3DMARK 2000 running a loop, and as expected after 2 hours and 30 minutes, it all froze up. By far this cooler wasn't enough to keep the CPU running at 880mhz, but at least it beat out the Golden Orb. Next up 825 Mhz. This speed was not really attainable for more than 8 hours with the Golden Orb, but on this Alpha based cooler, we had not had a crash in about 2 weeks now. Anything over this speed though would crash in about 5-6 hours worth of running. The AlphaC-MHO performed flawlessly as advertised, without the slightest problem.
