Wolfdale stock cooler spotted

Trimmed right down

| Cases, Cooling & PSU News | Posted: Jan 21, 2008 11:55 pm

Pictures of Intel's revised stock cooler have surfaced on the web which will be bundled with upcoming Wolfdale (45nm) Core 2 processors.

 

At first the cooler doesn't look much different to what we're used to seeing, but if you look a bit closer you'll see that the aluminium heatsink has been cut down significantly making the overall size of the cooler quite a bit smaller.

 

 

This is certainly a testament to how comfortable Intel are with the efficiency/heat output of the new chips, and would no doubt allow Intel to further trim down the manufacturing costs as well.

 

You can view the pictures over at TechConnect, courtesy of matbe.com.
