    Testing:

     

    Test Setup:

    Intel Pentium 4 2.53GHz C1 stepping
    Abit IT7-MAX2 v2.0
    1 GB Corsair XMS PC-3200

    Motherboard Monitor v5.2.2.0

     


    These tests were performed with an ambient temperature of 22 C in an open air situation with the motherboard laying flat on a work bench. All heat sinks were tested with Arctic Silver III and not the various thermal greases provided by the manufacturers. Load tests were conducted with the Prime95 torture test.

    The Zalman nearly comes into contact with the capacitors on the test board, there is actually a warning on the packaging that this might be a problem with some motherboards.

    The Zalman also sticks above the top of the motherboard, this could be a problem in small cases.

    The Nexus fits nicely among the surrounding capacitors, taking up no more room than the stock heat sink.
