OCZ Twin Turbo Heatsink Review
Whenever I hear about the 'Overclockerz Store' I sometimes
wonder if the OCZ fellows don't spend their entire day trying to
make simple little heatsinks into daemons of cooling prowess. After all, after opening the box
which contained the OCZ Twin Turbo heatsink I was met with not one, but two
25x60x60mm fans. The heatsink itself is barely over 75mm in width! Looking down on the
two chromed fan grills one is met with 120mm worth of fan. Turning the
heatsink on its side, you can those fans are just almost twice the size
of the heatsink.
Clearly we can see what this heatsink has been designed for.
Cooling, and plenty of it - at least that's what it should be doing, but
does it really?
Socket A and FCPGA Socket
Twin Turbo Heatsink
- Model Name:
- Extruded Aluminum design
- Two Top Motor Fans
- Dim: 25x60x60mm,
- HS Dimensions: 76x37x55mm
After all, a fan is by no means a substitute for a
well designed heatsink design. Strapping the biggest of fans, or for that matter, multiple fans
onto a lackluster bit of metal is not going to really do much
more than create a lot of noise. If the fans are really poorly
positioned they may not even move much air around. Badly placed fans can sometimes
pressurize areas of the heatsink fin region, effectively halting sufficient airflow.
