It is probably worth mentioning that this heatsink is just a little on the old side, but hey, an old heatsink means it doesn't cost that much and could find its way into a value oriented system. In any case the initial results are not very good against the current crop of socket 478 heatsinks.

The final temperatures for the Vantec GSW-6015 make it evident that the reign of entirely extruded heatsinks is pretty much over. The GSW-6015 can no longer compete, and if you have this heatsink in your computer, and love its low noise qualities, I'm afraid you are going to have to leave it behind if you upgrade to a more powerful Pentium 4 processor.

The thermal performance of this Vantec heatsink is just too low for a desktop cooler considering the options which are available on the cooling marketplace these days.
