Ajigo Corp. produce the stock heatsinks included with AMD's current line-up of Athlon64 boxed processors, so chances are if you're a K8 user your PC is running with an Ajigo MF043-044, MF064-074, or MF069-072 heatsink. In this review FrostyTech will be focusing on the Ajigo MF064-074, a straightforward extruded aluminum heatsink with a thermally responsive fan by Delta Electronics.

The heatsinks' construction is really plain, and it has been designed for a minimum acoustical impact which we can all appreciate. Each ajigo mf064-074 comes with a pre-applied patch of shin etsu 7783d thermal compound to make installation easier on end users. tooless installation is accomplished by means a clip and cam lever system which applies the correct pressure on the amd k8 processor below.

the heatsink is sold by the manufacturer directly, and bundled in with mid-level athlon64 retail processors. this all-aluminum heatsink weighs in at a feathery 373 grams.

Stock AMD K8 heatsinks have all been designed with a simple rotating cam lever to lock onto the heatsink retention frame and apply the correct clamping force in one fell swoop. The cam lever apparatus runs down the center length of a K8 heatsink, and in so doing it obscures the hottest portion of the heatsink base and prevents cooling fins from being situated there.

However, this AMD-approved clipping mechanism means this Ajigo heatsink should survive the impending K8 socket change relatively unscathed... since it uses two clips to lock the heatsink in place. Judging by recent information, the two clips common to socket 754/939/940 heatsink retention frames have survived the transition to AMD's new socket AM2 system.

FrostyTech's K8 Test Methodology is outlined in detail here if you care to know what equipment is used, and the parameters under which the tests are conducted. Now let's move forward and take a closer look at the Ajigo MF064-074 heatsink, its acoustic characteristics, and of course it performance in the thermal tests!
