Tocools Novasonic From All
||The Fan: |
The Delta fan used here is 80mm in size and protected by a fan grill. The fan draws 0.51A
and rotates at around 4000RPM.The fan connects to the motherboard via a standard three-pin motherboard fan header. There is just 1.5mm of clearance below the fan, and above the
square tips of the fins.
Top: With 23 fins machined from a solid
block of aluminum, the heatsink has less surface area than a traditional heatsink would typically. Each fin measures 1mm thick,
and is spaced 2mm apart from one another. The interesting part of this heatsink lies below the metal
profile of the Novasonic shows off a series of three steps in the side of all the fins. A set of spring clips are used to hold the fan in place on top of the heatsink. At the bottom corners you should be able to see small indents. They have been made to help ensure that the heatsink will fit on motherboards with closely placed capacitors.
||Side B: |
The clip Tocools use is not that great, but it
gets the job done if
you have a screwdriver and are careful about it. The clip is recessed into the body of the heatsink
because it is wider than the Socket A platform. From this angle you can see
the steps in the outer fins we mentioned previously. At the center of the heatsink the
base is 20mm thick. At the outer edges it is just 1mm thick.
The indents as well
as the cut for the socket A cam are clearly visible when
you flip the Tocools Novasonic over. The base of the heatsink is
perfectly finished - flat and very smooth. As the heatsink is 80mm
in size it may not fit on every single socket A motherboard
