might be a little strange to be testing out a Socket 754 AMD Athlon64 heatsink,
but remember there are plenty of single-channel DDR Socket 754 processors out there, and
lots of Sempron's too. The Jetart JAK801 is an all-aluminum extruded
K8 heatsink with a pretty standard set of accouterments. Its 15x70x70mm
fan operates at a single speed, and is
not temperature responsive.
The most obvious point of contention with the
Jetart JAK801 heatsink is its incredibly
stiff clip mechanism, making it rather difficult to physically install the heatsink into the
K8 socket retention frame. From the outset it looks as though the user
clips down the JAK801 in the same manner as a Socket
A heatsink, but that's not the case. Getting the three-prong
clip down and on the frame was a little difficult in our test set up.
Nevertheless, once this gargantuan task is accomplished, the Jetart JAK801
fulfills the task of socket 754 Athlon64 heatsink satisfactorily.

The only items the JAK801
heatsink comes with are a small blister pack of silicon paste and a metal K8
retention frame and back plate set. This is the first all metal heatsink frame we've
seen, and should well outlast any motherboard it's mounted upon.
Since the Jetart JAK801 is a pretty straightforward heatsink, we're going to dive right
into the 360° examination of it.
