Zero Puma + 60mm Fan Roundup
by david, 30 March 2002
still get a lot of emails from people asking whether or not they should change
to a higher speed fan from a lower speed one they have, or whether or not getting
a high speed fan will work wonders for their cooling setups for their CPUs. I
also get emails asking me on whether copper heatsinks are really necessary, and
whether or not it is still alright to stick to aluminium jobs to cool their new
Zero was kind enough to send over a package containing a bunch of 60mm fans, as
well as an aluminium heatsink, the Below Zero Puma on which to test the fans.
Incidentally, the Puma has been replaced by the Puma2 on their website.
60x60x25 5000rpm fan (AFB0612EH - came with the Puma)
60x60x25 6800rpm fan (Black Label)
60x60x38 8000rpm fan (FFB0612EHE)
60x60x15 47000rpm fan (NFD1260157B-1A)
this will be a combination review, of the Below Zero Puma, as well as using the
heatsink as a testpad for the various fans,
we'll see how well different fans affect heatsink performance, as well as seeing
how well all-aluminium heatsinks perform on today's current crop of processors.
take a look at the Puma itself.
