Spire SP420B8 Copperstream review

Posted on Monday, July 14 2003 @ 20:28:20 CEST by

Things that really can make a difference in performance is the design of a heatsink, pins and fins all try to make the contact surface with air as big as possible and how bigger the surface how more it can spread his heat and copper does this better. Another very important thing is the fan, a powerfull fan will draw the heat away much faster than a weak fan. Also a good contact between the CPU and heatsink is important! Lapping or thermal compounds are used to make the surface as flat as possible.
