With more surface area and a larger fan the all cooper AVC Tundra 2 seems to be performing pretty well for its stature. The fan is a bit noisy, and moves a fair amount of air but there is no shroud to help direct where that air goes once it leaves the motor. This may in fact be hampering the level of performance, but we shall see for sure in just a second.

Under 50 degrees Celsius is pretty good by our standards. This places the AVC Tundra in a section though, that is still just shy of 'performance cooling'.

Copper skived heatsinks are a relatively new phenomenon and we have seen plenty of different designs and attempts to get the best cooling out of them.

In this case, the AVC Tundra 2 is certainly an improvement over the previous iteration. With its' stiff clip the seal is likely to be tight between copper and silicon so transporting the case with the heatsink installed shouldn't be an issue. Not for overclockers, but good for anyone running an AthlonXP, the AVC Tundra 2 is not a cooler that needs to be avoided by any means.
