SMC EZ6516TX 16 Port Fast Ethernet Dual Speed Switch Review

Review : Swiftech MCW478-UHT Thermoelectric Cooler

Thermaltake vs. GlobalWin
OCAddiction has the Thermaltake Volcano 7+ and the Global WIN CAK4 on the test bench today to see which one comes out on top. Both heatsinks are versatile, letting you cool both your P4 and AMD CPU's. But lets see which one comes out on top.

"The silver shroud enclosed the copper fins and base and had a nice touch of design for the fan grill. The copper area of the heat sink was exceptionally shiny. There are enough fins to give extra surface area and still provide ample room for air to circulate. The fins were skived and were not soldered onto the base of the heat sink. This gives better heat transfer from the base to the fins, which in turn, should work better. The bottom of the heat sink was very shiny--a mirror finish."
