Thermaltake Volcano II Review
Thermaltake Volcano II Review
  80%   
Abstract: This isn't quite what you expect to see when you hear the name Thermaltake, but this square heatsink is indeed one of theirs.

Home > Reviews > Page: FrostyTech Synthetic Temperature Test Platform:

The FrostyTech Synthetic Temperature Test Platform consists of an aluminum block heated by a 120V 250 Ohm precision resistor producing 50W of heat. That heat is transmitted to the heatsink via the aluminum block and up through special copper die templates with thermistors embedded directly in them.

A temperature reading for a particular heatsink is taken once the temperature stabilizes in the copper die template. Since each of the die templates have the surface area of either a silicon topped or heatspreader-topped processor the flow of heat to the base of the heatsink accurately mimics a real life configuration.

Shown with the copper die template for a silicon-topped processor, the synthetic heatsink test apparatus awaits a coating of AOS29KY non-silicon thermal compound and the Thermaltake Volcano II heatsink. A slightly larger copper die template was used to test the effective cooling ability of the Volcano II atop a heatspreader-based processor like an overclocked PGA Celeron processor.
