Review - Socket Cooler Roundup



Welcome to Overclocking, Manila's Socket Cooler Roundup. This is the first installment in a series that will be updated whenever new units are received. We will compare all of the popular and currently available heatsinks in the Philippines.

Meet our first candidates:
Top row, left to right -
Global Win FDP32, Alpha PAL6035, Global Win FEP32
Bottom row, left to right -
Vantec FC-PGA Socket Cooler, Global Win CPM25603-32
1st inset row, left
Global Win FKP32
1st inset row, right
Thermaltake Golden Orb

To test, I brought out my trusty Intel Celeron 366 and overclocked it to 550 using an Asus S370-133 Slocket. I chose this slocket for my tests because it is the most stable one I could find that is available locally for a reasonable price (Php 500.00 at Villman). It is also the only decent slocket I have that can accommodate those huge Global Win coolers (FDP32 & FEP32).

Here's the rest of the system:

Motherboard: Soyo 6VBA-133 Motherboard
Memory: 128Mb. TTI PC133 SDRAM
Video Card: 3DFX Voodoo3 3000 AGP
Sound Card: Sound Blaster Live! Value
Hard Drive: Maxtor 13Gb. UDMA66 7200RPM
Others: Panasonic 1.44Mb. Floppy Drive

For processor stress, I used the following and ran them all at the same time for 30 minutes:

Winamp playing endless Techno/Tranz tunes
     - Winamp AVS Plug-in

Another 30 minutes went into getting a stable idle temperature.
