GlobalWin TAK68 HSF Review - GlobalWin TAK68 - Page 4

Today's heatsinks are finding themselves in a whole new world. It seems that everyone is wanting to have some good cooling, but without all the noise. This is a mighty tall order, but one of the old-timers has stepped up to the plate again. Come join Mike "Darthtanion" Wright as he takes us on a tour of the new GlobalWin TAK68 HSF. It features a dual fan setup and some other features that may just set it apart from the crowd.

Conclusion

 

OK...let's wrap this up and see what we have on our hands here. We have a heatsink that has a different look, a dual fan operation, and a clipping mechanism that is just plain strange. But strange or not, it proved itself to be a solid player when it comes down to producing decent temperatures at a tolerable noise level.

 

While the temperatures weren't stellar with this cooler in its stock configuration, it still maintained a very acceptable level of cooling. Besides, how long do you think it will be before you throw a couple of monster Delta fans on there to see what it is really capable of?

 

Bottom line...If you're tired of having to hide your case behind the desk to even come close to a quiet operation, then take a look at the GlobalWin TAK68. It provides a quiet atmosphere along with good cooling that should also give you plenty of breathing room when it comes to overclocking.
