Evercool vs. GlobalWin Pentium 4 HSF Shootout (Page 1)

Due to new chipsets hitting the streets, the Pentium 4 processor is starting to gain in popularity. And with a larger share of folks going back to Intel, the overclocking game is beginning to come around full swing with these processors. So cooling is now becoming a vital necessity once again, and what better way to test some coolers than by having them sweat their way through some testing in 30C ambient temperatures? Come join Jon "Albinus" Albiez as he does his best to torture the Evercool NW6-610 and the GlobalWin WBW-76 in a head-to-head shootout to the death.

Introduction

Since Intel released the Pentium 4 processor, there has not been a huge demand for aftermarket heatsinks. The major reason was that the solution provided by Intel (in boxed CPU sets) was an excellent performer, and unlike the AMD Athlon there was not a huge overclocking market to cater for. It was only since the introduction of the Socket 478 Pentium 4 (and the corresponding price drops) that the platform was considered viable by many. Now there is an increasing trickle of aftermarket coolers for the Socket 478 Pentium 4 - let's have a look at contenders from Evercool and GlobalWin to see how they stack up against the reference Intel unit.
