    This product was graciously provided by So-Trick Computers. Please visit them and help support our site.

    Installation

    Installation will vary for some of you. My heatsinks are all designed to use 60x60x25mm fans, or are easy to throw one on; some heatsinks are less friendly to it. So, for me installation of the fan was simply unscrewing the fan and screwing in the new one, pretty much brainless work.

    Installation: 3/3

    Cooling

    Now onto how this lil guy works. I figured the easiest way to test this would be to throw it against 2 other well known and popular fans out there. So I did.

    The Candidates:

    Thermaltake 60x60x25mm fan kit from So-TrickComputers.com
    YS-Tech 60x60x25mm fan
    Delta 60x60x25mm fan

    The stats on the fans are as follows:

    YS Tech 12V DC 2 Ball Bearing 2.16W 4500RPM 24.4CFM 34dBa
    Thermaltake 12V DC 2 Ball Bearing 1.8W 4500RPM 31CFM 28dBa
    Delta 12V DC 2 Ball Bearing 3.84W 6800RPM 37.6CFM 46.5dBa

    Going strictly by numbers, the Thermaltake unit is pretty much in the middle for airflow, while coming really close to the YS Tech for RPM, and beating both units in the power use and noise category. This puts it in a VERY comfortable spot for running.

    The Test Bed:

    • AMD Athlon 800@1GHz 1.85V
    • AsusA7V
    • Vantec FCE - 62540D Heat sink (reviewed here)

    The Test:

    Run some tests on the computer, getting both idle temps and Load temps. Removing and reapplying the heat sink after each test, and reapplying the Arctic Silver.

    The Numbers:

    Delta
    Idle Mobo Room
    45c 33c 27.5c
    Load Mobo Room
    49c 34c 27.6c
    YS Tech
    Idle Mobo Room
    49c 34c 27.7c
    Load Mobo Room
    53c 35c 27.7c
    Thermaltake
    Idle Mobo Room
    47c 34c 27.8c
    Load Mobo Room
    51c 35c 27.8c

    Cooling: 4/5
