Akasa's model AK-876 heatsink is identical to the AK-965, save for the AMD K8 mounting hardware where the latter was all Intel. Rather than ship one heatsink with both style of clips, Akasa are keeping things either/or this time around. Not that it matters much, the AK-965 was a very nice heatsink, so you can pretty much assume the AK-876 Frostytech is testing here will follow suit. As you might expect, the Akasa AK-876 is a lower noise AMD processor heatsink that is both easy to install and fairly lightweight. A thermally controlled fan was abandoned for a PWM compliant one instead, which makes sense as it's better to allow the computer direct control over impeller speed anyhow.
