FrostyTech Tests the brand spanking new Antazone ASC1000 heatsink, a newcomer to the stage
of desktop cooling. Is it good?? Is it quiet? These are just two of the questions Frosty answers.
ASC1000 heatsink makes use of direct airflow paths from its front mounted
95mm fan to its donut shaped 76mm diameter copper cooling fin section. Yet
how the ASC1000 actually handles is directly tied into how
efficiently its three 6mm diameter copper heatpipes, and the balk of copper at its
base perform together.
A thick copper
base plate connects the upper portions of the ASC1000 heatsink to the heat generating processor
below, and as a final good measure the whole contraption has been sugar dipped in
a nice shinny copper plating bath. Antazone's ASC1000 desktop
heatsink is compatible with
AMD sockets A/462/754/939/940 (though not AM2), and Intel sockets 478/775."
