The initial test results are looking surprisingly good for the Thermal Integration TI-A8736N, but is the rise above ambient temperature results we are really interested in. Given unique construction method, and 4000RPM fan, I'd expect this heatsink to bridge the performance cooler threshold and even outperform the TI-RV108N!

Given the loudness of the fan used with the TI-A8736N, it's a hard to say whether the heatsink is an effective cooler because of how it is made, or just because of the fan that sits on top.... In either case though, the argument is moot - the Thermal Integration TI-A8736N is a very good Pentium 4 heatsink as we have seen by the thermal test results. 

With a rise above ambient temperature of just under 30 degrees Celsius, the TI-A8736N heatsink performs just shy of the performance coolers, though it is easily among the best in this list of reference heatsinks. It manages to outperform the stock Intel 3.06 GHz heatsink by a degree or so, and the more common extruded aluminum stock Intel Pentium 4 heatsink by about 8 degrees.

The construction quality of the TI-A8736N is clever, with the internal shape of the triangular base helping to redirect exhaust air away from the center where dead spots can form. Bottom line, the Thermal Integration TI-A7636N is noisy, but packs in a very powertul punch thermally. A good heatsink for any toasty Pentium 4 processor where noise is not a major concern.
