GlobalWin CAK-II hsf Review - GlobalWin CAK-II hsf Review
Thu, February 14 2002 | 9:42AM | PermaLink Feedback?
Mikhail sends the word that they just finished reviewing the GlobalWin CAK-II 38 hsf. Great hsf, terrible name! It performs quite well though, take a look at what he thought here.

As is the case with most clips, this one is controversial. It's a good improvement because there's now a secure spot for the screwdriver to go so it doesn't slip and damage anything. Unlike the SAK38, the CAK's is attached with a lot more ease and didn't snap when I got it on the socket. Being a steel clip, getting it on with your bear hands is extremely difficult and not a very wise thing to try. It's actually a lot safer using a screwdriver, believe it or not. What's bad about the clip is that 1) you still have to use a screwdriver (where's the finger-pushing plate?) and 2) it only covers one socket tab. This could pose a problem if one of your slugs is broken. On a more common note, be careful not to slide the heatsink and/or a CPU shim, which can be quite easy to do when dealing with such a retention mechanism.
