Artic Silver 5 Review

Techware Labs has tested Artic Silver 5 with an Athlon XP 2500+ and it is looking like pretty good stuff.

Arctic Silver 5 contains over 88% thermally Conductive filler by weight. In addition to micronized silver, Arctic Silver 5 also contains sub-micron zinc oxide, aluminum oxide and boron nitride particles. These thermally-enhanced ceramic particles improve the compound's performance and long-term stability.

Coolermaster Jet 7 Cooler Review

Overclockers has reviewed the Coolermaster Jet 7 heatsink.

Testing finds this to be somewhat better than average, in regards to both performance and appearance. I can't say I'd recommend this particular heatsink for any serious overclocking, but it should be capable of cooling a mild push of bus and voltage. The better you case airflow is, the less you might have to wind out the blower. The more you wind up the blower, the less you might want to overclock, however. 3500 RPM certainly isn't silent.

You can pick it up for $38.

Thermalright SLK-948U Review

One of the best AMD64 heatsinks on the market gets a review at OCIA. It performs quite well against the stock AMD cooler.

When the opportunity came to try out the new Thermalright SLK-948U I jumped at it. If the stock heatsink did that well I couldn't wait to see what a top tier heatsink would do. The heatsink arrived in the normal Thermalright brown box.

Thermaltake Venus 12 Review

The Crucible has reviewed the Thermaltake Venus 12.

The Venus 12 is not a new design. In fact the same exact heat sink is also used in the Silent Boost and Silent Boost K8 as well as the Extreme Volcano 12. The fins are soldered to the base rather than skived, this helps to keep the cost of manufacturing down, but also lessens the performance some. Coming to the table with 73 fins, the Venus 12 packs a lot of surface area into its rather small footprint. We all know that the greater the surface area, the greater the cooling potential. The Venus 12 is made from 100% copper and measures 73mm x 73mm x 48mm tall. Weighing in at a pretty hefty 760 grams, the Venus 12 is sure to land in the heavy weight category.

You can grab this heatsink here for as low as $25.
