I just checked out your review on the new OCZ Tempest hsf. I'm a bit dissapointed, there are no thermal benchmarks, or audio ones. I'd like to know how it stacks up against the stock cooler in cooling capabilities and noise. The stock cooler for the X2's are surprising efficient, and reasonably quiet, so why spend $60 on something, if you don't know how it preforms compared to the stock cooler, its main competition?
PS. I'm not trying to be an asshat, I'd just like to see a complete review with benchmarks, the only way to tell its true (not advertized) preformence.
yes I can but I dont know how to send it to you. the forum says i cant post attachments.
however the heatsink is about 2 or 3mm on top of the biege plastic socket that says socket 939. if the heatsink base was square like the socket instead of rectagular i dont think i'd have this problem however on several sites they say installation was a breeze which is pi$$ing me off. i tried placing the socket without the cpu and when i screw the screws in, the heatsink dips down to touch the end of the socket towards the black cylinders and it looks very wrong. if i move the heatsink off the back of the plastic socket where its labeled 939 so that the heatsink is snug on the socket square while theres no cpu in place then the motherboard holes dont line up. its a micro atx board and i think maybe thats the problem but i havent heard this from anyone else.
