Installation and Testing I consider the installation and assemble of the Hedgehog-238m simple and quick making it one of it's strong points. Assembly of the heatsink was simple and took less than 10 minutes, not including the time to attach it to the processor. A basis instruction sheet is included with all the information needed for successful assembly. Installing the heatsink on my Intel Pentium III processor wasn't easy, it fitted on all motherboards we had sitting around at the time of testing, such as the Gigabyte 60XE and Epox 3SPA3L. It takes a fair amount of time and patience (which this cooler managed to stretch mine, even to the point of annoyance) to attach it to the processor as the clips are extremely tight, not an easy process but doable. The size (width) of the heatsink is similar to that of a Alpha PAL 6035, so very generally speaking the Hedgehog will fit on most motherboards that work with the Alpha PAL 6035. The clip included provides a strong hold to the processor that we tested the heatsink with (Intel Pentium III FC-PGA), there is no chance of the heatsink loosing contact with the processor core, unless it comes loose, which it didn't during our testing period. To show the true power of the Hedgehog-238m, we put it up against an stock Intel heatsink. While it is obviously which cooler will win before we even present you with the results, this will simply show you just how good the Hedgehog really is compared to an aluminum heatsink. Testing was done under load, with loops of Quake 3 Arena. When we first installed the heatsink the temperature in the BIOS was reported to be 65c, obviously there was a problem. I eventually found out that ACPI power management was disabled, enabling ACPI fixed the problem. - Kanie Hedgehog 238-m: 28c - Intel Stock Cooler: 40c - Difference: 12c The Kanie Hedgehog 238-m is a top performer, beating the Intel Stock Cooler by a massive 12 degrees Celsius which may not seem like a lot but it certainly is when the we consider the maximum temperate was 40c. With the Hedgehog-238m installed on an Intel Pentium III 800MHz FC-PGA processor with cc0 stepping with a Epox 3SPA3L motherboard we were able to obtain a maximum STABLE FSB setting of 126MHz. We thought this was impressive, as with the Intel stock cooler we could hardly reach 112MHz FSB with the same processor. Now we will show you the assemble process which we commented on earlier in this review. 1) Add the clip and fan mounting device to the heatsink...
