Review - Socket Cooler Roundup

 

 

ALPHA PAL6035

If a picture is worth a thousand words, this is a damn friggin' novel. My current favorite cooler is the Alpha PAL6035. It sports a copper inlay underneath to help spread the heat. The combination of Aluminum and Copper here is the key to it's performance. Copper takes in heat faster but takes longer to let go of it. Aluminum takes in heat slower but lets it go faster. Combine them both and you have near perfect heat exchange. Click here for the full rundown.

The clip design isn't that good though. It's a little too soft for my liking. But then, if you look at the way the pins on the heatsink are arranged, I don't think you could have done anything else. The Alpha PAL6035 will also sit flush with the current FC-PGA processors with no modifications needed. Some people say I need to get copper shims when using it with an FC-PGA, but I haven't run into any problems with it so far.

Cost (ESP): Php 1,800.00

Here's how it performed in our tests:

Idle, Ambient at 30.6C

Full Load, Ambient 30.6C

Those are the best numbers in this roundup. That means the Alpha wins this time. The Alpha PAL6035 comes with a 26CFM, 4200RPM, Y. S. Tech Fan but you'll have to assemble it yourself along with the rest of the unit. That's part of the fun I think. :-)
