  • Excerpt: Introduction: [IMG]xoxide_2015_25417071.gif[/IMG] I was originally running the stock Intel cooler on the quad core processor in my HTPC.  When I saw that there was basically no hope of running it at anything other than stock clock, I started looking for a better HSF.  Then baligavinod posted this thread , and my search ended.  I decided that I was going to buy the SI-128 SE and see how it handled a quad.

  • Excerpt: I was originally running my quad core-based HTPC with its stock intel cooler. When I realized that there was basically no hope of running it at anything other than stock clock, I started looking for a high performance replacement that would fit into my case. Then baligavinod posted this thread , and my search ended. I decided that I was going to buy the SI-128 SE and see how it fared against a Intel Quadcore X3220.

  • Conclusion: Thermalright has shown us that they can still make some remarkable products. With customizable fan options, fat 8mm heat pipes, huge cooling surface area and painless installation, the SI-128 is extremely well designed. This CPU Cooler should be on any ones short list when looking for an extreme air cooling product. It weighs less than the competition, and won’t force you to remove your motherboard when installing.
  • Pros: Extreme cooling, Easy installation, Light weight for a 120mm cooler, Won’t interfere with even the tallest of RAM sticks, Customizable fan options, Price
  • Cons: Motherboard compatibility issues

  • Summary: The SI-128SE cooler itself is big, a 120x120mm fin array hovering like SkyCity over a compact base connected via four 8mm diameter heatpipes.

Thermalright SI-128 CPU Cooler

Benchmark Reviews
5 December 2007
  • Conclusion: From mild packaging to big results, I can firmly attest that the Thermalright SI-128 is the best CPU cooling solution I have ever used or reviewed to date. In some cases, the measurements I recorded looked similar, and occasionally better, then some of the results I have previously seen with liquid cooling. Presently available for $49.99 at NewEgg.com , I found the SI-128 to be well worth the price of purchase.
  • Pros: Best air-cooling solution to date!, Very rugged construction and durability, Compatible with LGA775, AM2, and K8 platforms, Low profile allows broad installation range, Impressive with and without optional 120mm fan
  • Cons: Difficult installation / restricted space under headsink, Should include compatible 120mm fan

Thermalright SI-128 SE Heatsink

  • Summary: I'll be comparing the performance of the Thermalright SI-128SE to the stock AMD heatsink at stock speeds and various levels of overclock. Stock coolers are usually adequate at keeping temps under control at stock speed and voltage, however it's when increasing speed and especially voltage that much higher demands are placed on CPU cooling. To monitor CPU temperature I used a utility called CoreTemp.

  • Conclusion: Well as I said there were no surprises here, at least for me, I knew that the Thermalright SI-128 was going to be an excellent performer. Thermalright products are made with such a high quality manufacturing process that we can expect nothing less than perfection from them, and we get it every time it seems.
