Hans dirigeert ons richting HardOCP, waar Kyle een review van de nieuwe GlobalWin FKP32 socket370 cooler online heeft staan. In de temperatuur tests bleek de FKP32 net iets minder goed te presteren als de befaamde Alpha socket370 heatsink. Dankzij de lage prijs is de FKP32 toch een goede keus voor PIII-E, Celeron en K6 overclockers:
Well, it seems if you want the BEST PERFORMING COOLER for your Socket 370 CPU, you are going to be looking at the Alpha.
But the numbers are damn close. So close in fact, I was surprised. With all the high-tech aluminum and copper embedded surface on the Alpha I was extremely surprised to see how close the Global Win scores were. We are only looking at 3 degree difference on the outside and a ZERO degree difference on the inside temps. So in a big picture looksee, you have to say the Global Win performed really just as well as the Alpha except for a single degree or two. Not exactly something to get your panties in a wad (again) over.
How bout the other numbers? Price. Yep, this is where the big kicker comes in. I THINK the price of the Global unit will be HALF than that of the Alpha and possibly less, dunno yet, I can't find one for sale. I am told you will be seeing these crop up soon.
