Information not expressly stated in the Final Rise above Ambient Temperature Test Results List concerns the pre-applied thermal pad (we remove this for testing any way), the number of fans on each heatsink, general fan noise and clip force observations, and ambient temperature measurements. As always, FrostyTech'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.
I would have thought the copper internal prism base would have added a lot more kick to the AVC Z7H2403012 heatsink than it actually did.... so the results prove once again that expectations of a heatsink's performance are not always clear cut.
As you can see from the synthetic temperature test results, the AVC Z7H2403012 manages good, but very average results - placing just about dead center in this reference list.
Incidently, AVC also manufacture the stock Intel 3.06GHz heatsink, which runs about 3 degrees on average, cooler. The exact name of that heatsink is the AVC Z7H7059 "Blizzard," and if you're looking for a little more performance than the AVC Z7H2403012 offers, then I'd consider that model. Otherwise, the AVC Z7H2403012 is entirely suitable for mainstream cooling needs at a resonable noise level.
