The Cable Store (TCS) proudly announces the latest addition to its product line, The Arctic Circle for AMD Athlon. Responding to customer requests and recognizing the need for a Premium level CPU Cooler for AMD's Athlon processor that will not interfere with the motherboard ATX power connector or DIMM slots, TCS accelerated its R&D efforts, bringing the latest version of The Arctic Circle to market in less than three weeks from the first request.
Joining its sister cooler, The Arctic Circle for PII/PIII SECC2 Processors, the Athlon version is the most efficient CPU cooler currently available for AMD's latest stable of power house processors. Once again, TCS's design began with the published technical specifications and drawings for the processor. Using specialized tooling and holding machining tolerances to less than 0.002", TCS delivers the best CPU to heat sink interface available anywhere.
All currently available Athlon CPU coolers attach with clip-type mechanisms to the integrated aluminum thermal plate (a la Pentium II SECC cartridges). Choosing The Arctic Circle allows the user to remove the thermal plate (eliminating one thermal interface and its accompanying thermal impedance) and mount the cooler directly to the CPU's core. In addition, The Arctic Circle for Athlon package includes cache memory cooling components that, combined with the cooler's unique dual-vortex airflow, will cool the cache chips more efficiently than the existing thermal plate and gap filling thermal compound while avoiding the introduction of the cache memory's dissipated heat into the CPU core's cooling system.
Finally, The Arctic Circle package includes the necessary hardware to mount the cooler to the processor either with or without the Athlon's black plastic back case. With minor modifications, the black plastic back case can be maintained in the assembly to utilize its cartridge retention capabilities.
Voor al dit geweld wordt een prijs van 32,95 dollar gevraagd, valt op zich mee.
