You'll note that I've dropped out the actual test figures, and so FrostyTech is only showing the final rise above ambient temperature results in heatsink reviews from now on. With the number of heatsinks we have reviewed, the list was simply getting too long; and given the choice of keeping one long list of comparative heatsink results, or two shorter ones, I chose the former.
Information not expressly stated anymore concerns the pre-applied thermal pad (we remove this for testing any way), the number of fans, general fan noise and clip force observations, and ambient temperature.
As always, Frosty's Synthetic Temperature Test results for the Socket 478 Intel Pentium 4 platform are grouped according to the results of the 100W test die.
FrostyTech Synthetic Temperature Heatsink Test Results: *Ranked according to 100W interface die test results.
The Vantec Aeroflow2 VP4-7245 Pentium 4 heatsink comes in just a little below the upper end of this list of reference heatsinks. On the FrostyTech Synthetic temperature test platform, it weighs in at a little under 32 degrees Celsius (rise above ambient temperature), which is good.
At this point, any heatsink which manages under 25 degrees rise above ambient temperature is considered a performance heatsink - so the Vantec Aeroflow2 isn't quite up in that league. Still, it is a very good cooler, and one that would be well served in many a PC. It cools better than the stock all-aluminum Intel heatsink we tested previously, but not as well as the copper-based 3.06 GHz model Intel briefly shipped with its processors.
Bottom line, while the Vantec Aeroflow2 does handle the thermal tests well, if we consider the noise output it creates there are far better heatsinks available which can match, or beat, its thermal performance while making less of a racket. Where it does excel, is in its price point - at just $23 USD, the Aeroflow2 is pretty competitively priced if you on a budget, and looking for a heatsink.
