Fortis Tech A93 Copper Heatsink Review
Fortis Tech A93 is an interesting little heatsink that comes with a fan RPM alarm and a small tube of "silver" based
thermal compound. The little alarm gives out a horrible beeping sound when
the fan is stopped, or comes close to stopping under power. The actual unit is made by
computerdiy.com.tw from what we can tell, and consists of a small circuit board behind the blue protective casing. When the fan first powers up, there is a short
squeal as the sensor kicks in.
The A93 is shown here with a 70mm fan attached, but
if you did want to drop down to a 60mm fan it's worth noting that the green
anodized aluminum fan shroud is tooled for either fan (70mm and 60mm screw holes

The design of the Fortis Tech A93 is pretty
simple with copper fins soldered to a punched out copper base. As long as the solder
joint between teh fins and the base is decent, the heatsink should show some pretty
typical cooling performance. However, since this is a relatively standard cooler, I wouldn't be expecting
any top of the line performance out of it, and so overclockers should be aware
that this is really intended for typical computer users.
The little fan alarm is a neat idea, but only works if you are there
beside your computer to turn it off. Ideally, the motherboard should be configured to shut
down if the fans stop working for whatever reason
