Elan Vital FSCUG9C: Ribbed Structure Made Of Sheet Steel

Elan Vital FSCUG9C.

This edge on the Elan Vital FSCUG9C prevents use with Pentium III processors.

Compared to the FSCUG3C we examined during the first test, the dimensions of this cooler have grown a little. However, it doesn't fit on an Intel Pentium III, since one of the two embedded copper runners gets in the way during assembly. Cooling performance measured during the test is good, averaging at 43 degrees. The heat sink consists of a ribbed structure made of sheet steel that is attached to a large copper plate acting as the contact surface.
