Globalwin TAK68 Heatsink Review

The Globalwin TAK68 was introduced earlier this year, so this should make it pretty widely available by now. Unlike standard heatsinks which use a large flat base and a set of fins above that, the TAK68 takes that concept, cuts it in two, and folds it in half. Instead of mounting the bottom of the heatsink to the processor, we are basically attaching the side. We call this kind of heatsink the "H" design because if you look at it from the top it looks like that letter.

Thermal performance can be a bit tricky to peg down with this kind of heatsink since they tend to be either pretty good or pretty bad. In general though, the "H" style of heatsink offers up performance at a variety of levels. Some heatsinks, like the Coolink H2T we recently looked at came out well, while others just seemed to move a lot of air about with little effect. Aside from this twin fan center-core extrusion design, Globalwin have added one other thing to worth mentioning.

    The clip on the TAK68 is one of a few we have ever seen which uses a small screw to put pressure on the core. Given the fragile nature of AMD processors, this can be a hazardous method if the user is a bit zealous, or the heatsink isn't flatly mounted. The three slots in the clip help ensure that the heatsink sits flush, and perhaps more importantly, that the socket isn't ever damaged.
