?Pic-1: Nice packaging, showing off the copper through the clear plastic.
Pic-2:? Cardboard insert with product specifications.
Pic-3: Contents, inside you get 2 heat spreaders, 2 heatsinks, 2 clips, 4 pieces of thermal tape, and 1 metallic case sticker.
Pic-4:? Here you can see the heat spreaders and the heatsinks. The heatsinks are 63.48 mm long, 21 mm wide, and 13.5 cm high.? The bottom of the heatsinks are not very smooth, with machining marks running the width of them.? One thing that is disappointing about this cooling kit is that the heatsinks are not made out of copper but instead aluminum, only the heat spreaders are copper. The heat spreaders are133.8 mm long, and 26.8 mm tall. The heat spreaders have a few scratches and dings when I first took them out of the package.
Pic-5: 256mb of PC-133 ram, I will be using this for testing.
Pic-6: Here are the clips that hold the heat spreaders onto the ram, they added a few scratches to the surface of the heat spreaders during installation.
Pic-7: Ram with heat spreaders clipped on, installation was a bit of a hassle as the clips just did not want to go on.
Pic-8: Another view, the heat spreaders do more than cool your ram, they look good to!
Configuration used for testing:
Testing conducted with an ambient room temperature of
20.9c.? These are probably meant more for DDR ram not PC-133 like I was
using.? As you can see the heat spreaders help drop the temperature about
