Spire SP741B3-U DiamondCool II

According to the numbers, it doesn’t look like this heatsink performed at the level I was hoping for. The copper design and sleek looks didn’t amount to much after the installation troubles. The asking price of around $36.00 doesn’t make this a viable alternative to the stock heatsink you get when you purchase your retail processor. If looks will sway your decision and performing slightly better than stock is enough for you; then save your self some money by purchasing the OEM (vs. retail) CPU of your choice and slapping this UV reactive copper fat boy on your chip. Don’t forget to invite your friends over to stare at the spider glowing inside your chassis.

Bottom line, would I buy one? It certainly is quiet, but doesn’t perform as well as the Freezer Pro which is just as quiet… Um… I am going to have to pass on this one. Sorry.
