The initial test results on Frosty's Synthetic Temperature Test platform indicate good things about the Coolermaster Jet4 Intel Pentium 4 heatsink, especially when the fan is turned all the way up to full blast.

At the highest fan speed setting the Coolermaster Jet 4 comes in towards the top of this list of reference heatsinks. With the fan RPM set as low as possible, the sound output is dramatically lower, but the processor temperature will also rise in turn. There is a happy equilibrium in their somewhere - but it all comes down to user taste and just what applications are being run on the PC.

The difference in thermal performance between running the Coolermaster Jet 4 with its' fan at full blast (nearly 60 dBA) compared to the low noise 1900RPM option (44dBA) is about 5-7 degrees according to our measurements, on Frosty's temperature test platform. As a lower noise heatsink, the Coolermaster Jet 4 handles the task remarkably well, ranking within the upper half of this list of Pentium 4 reference heatsinks.

 When it comes to gaming, or overclocking, high temperatures can really hold a system back. In those situations, you may want to crank up the speed on the Coolermaster Jet 4.

Doing so means a nice sized thermal performance boost that places this heatsink from Coolermaster on very firm ground compared to a wide range of performance heatsinks from many different manufacturers.

Retailing for about $39USD, the Coolermaster Jet4 makes a good choice for Intel Pentium 4 cooling, so long as there is sufficient space in the PC case. With cool jet-like styling, solid copper construction, and thermal performance that can handle the task well, it's good to see that Coolermaster still have what it takes to build a good moderate performance heatsink.
