The packaging was artful and clean cut, the heat sink performed admirably in testing, only beginning to slouch at overclocked testing. Some of the heat sinks were larger or had two fans where this one was more petite and only one fan and yet it still provided performance on par with most of the competition that was compared to. There were some typos or grammatical problems on the paperwork, but nothing terrible such as typos on the product itself. The base was far from smooth, but it was flat and the fins are not soldered on. Everything needed to install the heat sink is included, but users might need to have tools if they already have their motherboard installed.
Everything works on the heat sink, but there is always room for improvement. The base could be smoother and the heat fins could be soldered in, but everything seems good to go.
Performance was great and the dimpling may have worked to silence the fan some as operational noise was quieter than the Nvidia GTX260 blower fan running on automatic speed. It wasn’t quite top dog, but it was close and only lost some ground at the overclocked load testing.
