Ouch. The Cho-Liang CB0309Z17 does not enter the list of reference heatsinks with any grace, coming in pretty low on the list. We will have to look at the rise above ambient temperatures to see just how this heatsink performs.

Compared to previous Cho-Liang heatsinks there appear to be better options than the CB0309Z17. I think the heatsink looks amazing, but the two-part design is undoubtedly playing a big part in its poor performance. The CB0309Z17 has potential, but manufacturing improvements will have to be made before its true performance can be realized. Perhaps these changes could be as simple as replacing the current anodized aluminum core with a copper cylinder, or simply assembling the entire heatsink before anodizing.

Whatever the changes, something needs to be done to improve the thermal interface between the two sections, or it needs to be removed completely. The low-to-average performance that the CB0309Z17 is currently able to produce doesn't quite seem representative of the radial design so hopefully Cho-Liang can fiddle around with things and devise a fix. For the moment however, users would be better off sticking to their current stock Intel socket 478 heatsinks.
