Dynatron DC1207BMW Pentium 4 Heatsink Review
have shown us in the past
that they can innovate, and make rather cool heatsinks. With the DC1207BMW, or model
W, things are straight forward and plane. The heatsink is but a straight extrusion with
a fan on top.
A set of
two stainless steel spring clips are included with the Model-W, and they sit in
a little aluminum channel just above the fins to keep
the entire heatsink firmly seated on the socket. The stainless steel clips are spring tensioned so that the
heatsink is always under pressure, and the system works pretty well. Overall the
installation is very straight forward and removing the heatsink isn't a
hassle at all unlike other Pentium 4 heatsinks.
Here you can see how the clip sits on
the top of the heatsink and forces the entire unit down into the HSRM. The
benefit of this method is really that you can see where the clip is, and have
better control over it than with the stock Intel heatsink for example. The
downside is that the mechanism is a bit more complicated and there is the chance
of it coming loose should the PC be bumped hard, or dropped.
