Aerocool GT-1000 Gold-Plated Heatsink

1 July 2007
  • Excerpt: Aerocool is a new name to Mikhailtech. Recently we took a peak at their Turbine fan series and were pleased with the innovation involved. However the company has been around for some time; they were one of the first to introduce heatpipe coolers, though their models weren't very popular. Today we'll be taking a look at arguably the most "bling" heatsink currently on the market: the gold-plated all-copper GT-1000.
  • Pros: Great presentation, Accommodates both 80mm and 92mm fans, Includes parts for mounting on K7, K8, P4 (478), and LGA775 platforms, Very high quality build, Flat, well polished base, Gold-plated!, Good performance using a higher speed fan
  • Cons: Rigid clips (require a screwdriver), Socket 478 installation needs to be done extra carefully, Mediocre load performance with low speed fan

  • Conclusion: AeroCool does a great job at combining the stunning gold plated looks with excellent heatpipe cooling.  During the testing several other techs came over to offer positive comments on the size and looks the GT-1000 provides even through the case window.  Is there such a thing as heatsink envy?  In the performance department, the GT-1000 dominates the OEM cooler, providing a 10 degree difference consistently even overclocked.

AeroCool GT-1000 mit 92mm Lüfter

5 March 2008
  • Summary: AeroCool knüpft mit dem GT-1000 an die erfolgreiche HT-101 Serie an, ohne dabei sonderlich herausragende, neue Highlights zu präsentieren. Den Altmeister Thermalright XP-120 zu entthronen vermag auch der GT-1000 nicht. Die Verarbeitung ist bis auf beschriebene Mängel bei den Lüfteraufnahmen einwandfrei. Weniger gut gefiel die etwas aufwändig zu vollziehende Montage, auch wenn lobenswerterweise die umfänglich möglichen Montageoptionen zu erwähnen sind.
