Review: Heavyweight P4 Heatsink Roundup

Cooling
The Zalman 6500Cu and 6500AlCu, the Thermalright AX478 and the stock Intel P4 HSF are reviewed with a quiet, low airflow Panaflo, using our "compare-heatsinks-not-fans" approach. Again, reduced airflow testing of heatsinks provides some surprises. Our first P4 HS roundup review.

Review: Temp-controlled Coolers by Arctic Cooling & Spire

Cooling

Temperature controlled fans on heatsinks are more commonplace than you think: did you know that the stock Intel P4 HSF is thermally controlled?

Review: 4 Socket-A Heavyweight Heatsinks

Cooling
Three celebrated heavyweights and a renown low-noise specialist in our first heatsink roundup review. The contenders: Thermalright SLK800 and AX7, the venerable Swiftech MC462A, and the CNPS6000Cu from low noise specialist Zalman. We know how they do with loud high airflow fans, but how about a Panaflo at 12, 7... and even 5 volts?
