Thermalright SLK-800

Impressed? I certainly was. I was very happy with my Swifty and it’s performance. Little did I know how cool I could get. I think it’s safe to say that Thermalright has maintained the initial quality of this model and with it their role as one of the premier heatsink manufacturers today. There are some more expensive coolers you could purchase, but, for ~$30 this one will be hard to beat. The functionality, performance, construction and versatility make this one a keeper. There are a couple of issues though, a review wouldn’t be complete without them. The lack of detailed instructions was a minor detail. You can visit the Thermalright website and print from there but even those are rather abrupt. You also still need to use either a screwdriver or a nutdriver to attach the clip to the socket. It was very stiff also, a definite possibility for slippage. The final one is the narrowness of the base. It does require that you take your time, ensure you have installed the pads and be careful of wiggle. Overall, this is a can’t miss item. If you don’t want to spend upwards of $50, would rather not attach a heatsink through your motherboard or don’t have the proper mounting holes to do so, then you could do worse than the SLK-800. Of course that’s just my opinion, your mileage may vary.
