A name that is very common among the computer building community is Thermalright. Since Thermalright's successful SK6 a few years ago, they have continued to lead the pack in performance. Not only do Thermalright heatsinks perform exceptionally well, they lead the pack.


This makes my head hurt. Need an editor? ;)

Yep, it turned out pretty good. Very nice heatsink, I love the fact that it fits 92mm fans. :)

Thanks Bill! :D

Yeah, I coulda sworn that wasn't what it said. So, I just pretended not to see it. I left that morning for camping in Montana, just got back tonight, Have to work tomorrow. :)

Enjoy the heatsink, MoFo, it is very nice! I'm going to try lapping it to see if it improves at all. :)

Thanks for the compliments! :)

Not fit a7n deluxe?

To what ever the name of the motherboard is( same that I have)...

Just wondering, why not just use a dremel to grind off the part of the heat sink that touches the capacitor? I've done this before on an old Aluminium P2 heatsink to put on a k6, and it worked perfectly.

Any reason why we can't grind a small part of a copper heatsink the same way? I have never had copper heatsinks, so I don't know. I'm waiting to receive this exact heatsink (3 weeks or so from now.).

By all means you can most certainly do that. Just be sure all clippings and dust are fully blown off before using, of course. :p

You may lose a little of the cooling capacity but not to much depending how much you remove. Still, that heatsink is good enough to compensate.

Well, I did get my heatsink like 3 weeks ago, I took my dremel to it, notched up a space for the capacitors.

Fits and works perfectly. I recommend that instead of bending the capacitors.

Tip: After grinding, wash your heatsink under flowing water to make sure no more grinding dust is on the heatsink. Let dry properly and install.

I wrote that so long ago. I can't believe someone brought this back from the dead! lol

I guess I'm kind of doing the same now...

I'm still using the beast! The thing has ROCKED! I couldn't have asked for a better heatsink. When it comes time to finally move forward from my 2100+, I'm going to hate to see it go. :(
