Thermalright SLK-800

Monster-Hardware
29 July 2012
  • Summary: As always I have a few minor gripes. For starters there should be some sort of a manual especially here with this heatsink since there is a possibility you might crack the core if you don't use the felt pads on the bottom of the heatsink. I would like to see the little ridge on the clip were you put the tip of your screwdriver much bigger so the screwdriver wasn't so prone to slippage, none of these quibbles are show stoppers though.
  • Pros: Performance is best I have tested, Three prong clip holds HSF firmly in place, Design allows use of 60, 70, and 80mm fans, Very polished base
  • Cons: No printed instructions, Clip somewhat difficult to operate, Expensive

  • Conclusion: The Volcano 12's bigger and uglier than the Thermalright options, though. And, more practically, its elephantine bulk is retained by a plain old three-hole hook clip. If you're moving your computer around regularly, you'll be safer with an 800U or 900U than with a Volcano 12.

  • Excerpt: Along about the middle of last year Thermalright introduced the SLK-800 heatsink for socket 370/462 motherboards. The result was a resounding success. The SLK-800 found itself perched atop the food chain for aftermarket cooling on those steaming Athlons. Praises were heaped upon it like roses on Miss America. So, it’s been well over six months since it was introduced, why subject us to another review? Well, for two reasons actually.

  • Summary: Okay, an all silver heatsink would be better, but since such a thing doesn't exist in the mainstream cooling world, we'll just have to settle for the Thermalright SLK-800 and plug our ears.

  • Excerpt: Thermalright entered the Athlon cooling scene with a bang. Their SK-6 was one of the best, if not THE best 60mm cooler for the Athlon available, thoroughly trouncing the aluminum contenders of the day such as Globalwin�s FOP-38. Flash forward to......

  • Summary: Without a doubt this is the Ferrari of the heat sink world. It has it all, copper, shiny finish, choose your own fan, superb clip, easy release fan system. The only thing that might put people off is the price at $45-$50 USD it is not cheap. You get what you pay for right? I can't recommend this highly enough if you have a hot Athlon based system. A choice product for all you enthusiasts out there.
  • Pros: Awesome cooling, looks great, Fits all size fans, Pure copper baby
  • Cons: Pricy, Heavy

  • Excerpt: Es ist uns ein Vergnügen euch den nächsten Kühlertest für AMD Prozessoren zu präsentieren, und zwar den Thermalright SLK 800 Heatsink . Es handelt sich hier nicht um einen neuen Mercedes, nein, der Name ist uns schon ein Begriff, und in guter Erinnerung geblieben. Schon der AX 7 hat sich im Low Noise Bereich einen guten Namen machen können. Dies war der garantierte Einstieg für den Hersteller.

  • Conclusion: Sehr zu unserer Freude hatten wir mit diesem Produkt keine Probleme, da wir schon vom letzten Model so begeistert waren, und diesmal keine Überraschungen erleben wollten. Oft gelingen den kleineren Herstellern nur Eintagsfliegen, doch dies trifft hier absolut nicht zu. Für unseren Test haben wir nicht einmal den vom Hersteller empfohlenen Delta FFB0812EHE mit 38 mm verwendet. Trotzdem haben wir so gute Werte in mehreren Messungen erreicht, kompliment!
