    Evercool K803-925CA Heatsink - Conclusion


    (Page 5 of 5 )

    The Evercool K803-925CA performs great considering the heatsink is made of aluminum. The lack of copper and heatpipes does not hold back the 925CA from achieving decent temperatures, proving that to have a great heatsink you donít need to have heatpipes. The 925CA would only perform better if it had a smoother finish as well. Although the finish on the heatsink still produces great results. If a user needed to drop a few more degrees, Iím sure with a lap job on the base they could achieve lower temperatures.

    Pros

    • Decent performance in overclocked situations
    • Black anodized heatsink looks great with red fan-blades
    • Socket Clips are easy to use and hold heatsink firmly in place
    • Quiet fan when compared to most 90mm fans

    Cons

    • Base is very rough, so cooling performance is reduced
    • Fan is not completely silent at 2900RPM, which can prove to be aggravating for silent systems.

    I would like to thank Evercool for providing us the K803-925CA. This heatsink is great for those users who are looking for a simple cooling upgrade over their stock cooling solution, and any users who want to decrease temperatures or to increase over-clock speeds over the basic stock cooler. This heatsink performs very well, even without all the fancy new technology.
