My System Specs


Looks like AMD isn't getting some love anymore ...

Great Review, but that heatsink is a bit pricey though... Would be worth it for those people who like to push their D0 Stepping to the limit

Great review, awesome heatsink. Almost makes me want to go back to air cooling. It seems to benefit greatly from the increased airflow of dual fans, so I assume it'll be superb with some higher cfm and static pressure fans.

I feel I have to point out that "irregardless" is not a word, though. (page 6)

Just to let you know....there is a typo....a funny one...in page 5.

Even just by looking at this mounting setup, you know its going to give good results. By way of good engineering, Prolimatech gas

Thought I might point this out.

CPU Cooler

AMD support.

They also posted this on their home page.

"Prolimatech does not condone any type of lapping done to the CPU or to heatsink base. Every Prolimatech's heatsink base is designed on a pin-point scale of how the base is to be flat and/or curved where it's needed to be. We have programed our machines to machine the surface in a very calculated way. Any after-manufacture lapping or modding done to the base will alter the design, hence negating its performance factor as well as its warranty."
