VR-Zone has done up a shootout among on the new GlobalWin CAK4 cooper series coolers like the CAK4-88T, CAK4-76T, CAK4-86 compared with the CAK-II38 and CAK-II58 coolers.

These days, trying to look for a suitable cooler fan for your brand new, high & mighty AMD Athlon™ XP processors can be such a "helluva" difficult decision making. There are simply too many brands, too many choices and too much reviews/ recommendations. There's 3 main factors many of us are very much concern when we wanna spent that couple of bucks on a brand new cooler fan, namely - Effectiveness, Performance & Noise Level.

-------------------------------------------- is up next with their review of the Zalman CNPS6000-Cu Socket A & Socket 370 cooler.

The first thing that you will note when you put your hands on the CNPS6000-cu, is its weight. The heatsink alone weights 462g (exceeding in 162g the specification from AMD, and 282g the specification from Intel). This situation has a good side and a bad (or at least, dangerous) side. With more metal to dissipate the heat from the CPU, you will lower its temperature, but by being so heavy, you will have to be extra-extra careful when you move your computer.

Performance was not as expected. I hoped for great things from this unit, but got rather less than I'd hoped. Under load, the temperature would not stabilise, fluctuating in a 2ºC range almost periodically. It's most likely that the cooler was moving around on its pathetic clip so cooling in fits and starts. Change the clip if you get one.
