Hey Folks, Many of you may remember that I was on a quest to find a great HSF for my NON OverClocked Pentium 4 machine. Some may even remember JonR flaming me for being so anal about getting a Great HSF for a NON Clocked machine. Hey this is all about fun and if you got it, Spend it! So I went to www.directron.com about a month ago and asked if they could special order me CoolerMaster's Everest HSF which is an all Copper HSF with Heat Pipe Technology. Much to my suprise I recieved an email from Jason at Directron and he was more than gratious enough to special order me that cooler. Well, that took over a month! Not Jason's fault mind you. I believe CoolerMastere shipped it over from China on the Paddle Boat (even slower than the Slow Boat From China) Today the nice Mr.OOps man showed up to deliver my package of doom! The CoolerMaster HSF had arrived. I opened the package only to find that CoolerMaster shipped Jason the wrong cooler. After looking at it and reading the box I determined that they sent me a HSF that uses the same HSF as the Everest but this particular unit is called the Fujiyama and it uses an ultra quiet fan (Looks like a Sunon). No harm no foul, I am not about to wait for another month while CoolerMaster paddles the right one across the pond. So I take it out of the packaging and what shocks me most is the substantial weight and the finish. This thing has a polished finish that would embarass most engine compartments of show cars. When I flip the cooler upside down there is a sticker over the entire CPU Die surface area of the HSF.. I remove this sticker expecting to find some cheesy heat pad. Nope, just a perfectly shiny lapped base. They included a package of white thermal grease. I took my time and masked off the base of the HSF just large enough to extend slightly beyond the dimensions of the P4's IHS (Integrated Heat Spreader). Then I cleaned the area with Isopropyl Alcohol and I applied enough Arctic SilverII Compound to cover the area. I used a piece of plastic wrap over my finger to spread the compound. I throughly cleaned and re applied Arctic Silver II to the CPU's IHS in the same fashion. Installing these CoolerMaster HSF's is a snap, literaly. The Heat Sink makes use of the stock Intel HSF base that comes on every P4 Mother Board. The CoolerMaster has fingers that enguage this base and use cam locks to FIRMLY seat the unit. So does this thing work? Well, as other Arctic Silver users know, it takes a day or so for the AS to completly bond with the CPU and HSF surfaces. I fired up [email protected] run as a foreground application (all the time) and that uses 100% of my 1.8 Ghz P4 needless to say it generates heat. Before with another CoolerMaster aluminum HSF, which in and of it's self was not a bad cooler, I was running at 115-120 Degrees Farenheight. (No celcius here please, this is America!) And after installing the CoolerMaster Fujiyama Heat Pipe? 109 Degrees Farenheight! Is that a drop? I would say so! I expect as the AS II settles in it may even drop and stay below 100 Degrees. And all this cooling goodness will cost you a mere $37.00 which makes it a clear cut winner over anything that ThermalRight,PAL or Swiftech have to offer. Plus in the tests I have seen the CoolerMaster bested, the best by at least 9 degrees. So if you are a cool freak (Overclocked or not) this is a worthwhile HSF to check out! And yes they even make one for those AMD chips!
