Knockoff Foxconn Heatsinks? - FrostyTech.com Knockoff Foxconn Heatsinks?
Fri Jun 20, 2008 | 2:03P| PermaLink
The heatsink industry is so competitive, it's not uncommon for manufacturers to display 'fake' prototypes at shows like Computex just to throw off sneaky competitors. Zalman is another example of a heatsink maker that has had to go to patent court to protect its intellectual property. Today we received an email from JB Fowler about an alleged knockoff Foxconn heatsink called the CMI-775-14b. I'll let JB explain...

www.frostytech.com
"Do you have a "bad review" section or any means where you can let people know that the foxconn CMI-775-14b is not actually a foxconn product and DOES NOT fit a socket 775 MB. I have attached a couple pictures showing how it is crooked and does not line up with my CPU. Also a pic of the bottom where you can see how crooked the feet are.

I talked to Foxconn tech support and he was baffled. He said that someone is pirating their name and box.

These are so cheap that a lot of people will be buying them, so I feel obligated to let people know that they are getting a defective product."
