AMD64 - What HSF?

Discussion in 'AMD Thunderbird' started by Peter van der Goes, Sep 28, 2003.

  1. Now that several motherboard manufacturers are making motherboards for the
    AMD64 and the CPU's seem to be available, what HSF's are available? I see
    the CPU's come with a heat spreader a la the K6.
    The pictures I see show the socket seemingly without clip lugs and some sort
    of plastic frame surrounding the socket.
    Any intel on HSF's for this beast?

    from the looks of it, it's a ZIF heatsink :)..
    Screw in the side clips to the motherboard
    drop the heatsink on, push the retaining clip around and away you go..

  3. Thanks!
    I found one at the Coolermaster site. More soon from alternative sources, I
    Someone (maybe Vantec) should make one with a TMD fan.

    Thermaltake makes the "Silent Boost" model for both Socket A and 754/940.
    It's all copper and uses what appears to be a hybrid Panaflow fan.

  5. Thanks! Another alternative. The Thermaltake models seem to show a somewhat
    traditional clip in the pictures, but as the models offered are available in
    both 32 bit Athlon and AMD64 flavors, it's impossible to tell which is
    Think I'll wait at least I can see a lash-up locally, then decide :)
