iXBT heeft een drietal PIII heatsinks gereviewed: de Elan Vital FSCL03-L, TennMax P3 TF en een onbekende noname cooler. Van de drie coolers werd de Elan Vital als beste bevonden:
Now let's compare the results of Elan Vital FSCL03-L to those of TennMax P3 TF Cooler. The conclusion, however, is more than evident already: a strong airflow is far not the end. Although Elan Vital FSCL03-L has only one single fan, it still manages to surpass even TennMax P3 TF Cooler. Besides, we would also like to draw your precious attention to the fact that Elan Vital FSCL03-L possesses no L2-cache cooling. But the results it showed in the tests were even higher than those of the coolers with the L2 cache airing. And this means only that a free air circulation provided by the SECC2-cartridge open design is quite enough.
