    Hello Everyone
    I have read about the Sunon Waturbo on Toms Hardware page and do you think I
    can find out where to buy it ?
    I liked to look of the Cooler and even emailed the company and they really
    were not helpfull at all they said I had to contact their agents in
    Australia who told me it would at least 8 weeks if they had a minimum of 10
    orders. Is this Sunon REALLY interested in selling their products or
    what??????? I have not even seen any on eBay

    Why does Toms Hardware bother talking about a product that no one seams to
    have, this is not the first time they have done this. A while ago they
    reviewed a AM2 3800 35W CPU that was september and I have not seen any of
    these for sale.


    Have you seen anyone selling a Sunon Waturbo please hollar I would really
    like to know.


    Thank you

    What is theta_R for the cooler ? A compact design, with not many fins on it,
    cannot cool very well. No matter how many pints of bourbon are stored in
    its tank.

    A good cooler, requires two things. It needs a good base design - the base
    has to spread the heat and couple it into the cooling fins. Then, a large
    enough fin area has to be used, to promote good heat transfer into the air,
    with a minimum of effort from the fan. In other words, a fin assembly larger
    than the CPU socket area, can allow a large cooling fan to run slowly,
    and still give adequate cooling.

    That Sunon looks very ordinary, and probably has a theta_R of around 0.35C/W
    or higher. The retail cooler that comes with your processor, will also be
    in the 0.35C/W operating range. A good aftermarket cooler has a theta_R
    of less than 0.20C/W.

    (Not very big)
