Quoted from CPUfx Core Active Heatsink Reviews:Check out these quotes from CPUfx Core Active Heatsink reviews & previews
"After installation (This thing is huge) we started the benchmarking by running our flash Benchmark, which goes through a heavy graphic loop while calculating 20 digit integers. This gives us a pretty damn good level of Cpu use, and gets the video card blazing to depict real world use."
"The test results of the Core heatsink are less then favorable. For a heatsink which costs what this one does it should really offer a better performance level then it does. Even the might of the Delta fan cannot push the performance of this heatsink up any further then ninth place among our set of reference heatsinks."
"To test this we installed it on a 1.2 Ghz DDR rig, this meant we were using the latest technology; we decided to compare it with a Hedgehog, and the standard alpha. We installed this on an AMD reference board. we recorded the temperature after running seta on it (full load) for 2 hours."
"I was surprised by the CORE's performance. It does not perform nearly as well as I had imagined. Probably because it's all aluminum. Even with a 38CFM fan, it BARELY edges out the Copper Orb, which gets beaten by a PEP66."
"The test is fairly simple. I compared the Core to the Alpha PAL6035. Both coolers started at a case temperature of 78F. The system, featuring an Intel Pentium III 700e @ 933, ran for an hour at full load to raise the temperature. The cooler with the lower temperature was the winner."
