--- Appearance, Specification and Compatibility
AppearanceIntel's cooler design has changed very little since the introduction of the 478 socket and is still going strong today. The simple push-pin mounting system is exceptionally easy to use and secures the cooler in place perfectly. Quite rightly, the design has become almost iconic.
The design features an even-load system that results in effective cooling through guaranteed contact between the CPU and heat-sink. The push-pins use a notch system to ensure the cooler makes a reassuring click when fitted correctly.
The simple, waved heat-sink features a solid copper core with a top-mounted 92mm frameless fan, speed-controlled through the motherboard. At 382g it's easily the lightest of the coolers here.
