quite some time now the hardcore gamer/hardware enthusiasts
of the world have been looking to Overclocking to increase the
lifespan of their lowly processors, and get more bang for their
buck. Unfortunately, Overclocking is not that easy, and usually
cannot be accomplished by using the stock heatsink/fan combo
that comes with most processors.
now you are all hyped up on overclocking you new Athlon 500,
you have taken off the old stock heatsink/fan combo and are
ready to go. Now comes the problem. What fan/heatsink combo
do you buy? Today we are going to look at 2 solutions provided
to us by coldcpu.com, the
GlobalWin FKK32 and the ALPHA P7125, both of which are high-end
SECC style coolers.
those of you who are familiar with Alpha's earlier P125, this
new cooler is in essence the same only with a few minor adjustments.
First of all the heatsink's fins are cut a little shorter so
that it has an easier time fitting into some smaller mainboards.
Second, the cooler now uses a copper base plate which translates
into better cooler performance overall.
