A Cool Bunch: How To Put A Lid On The Die Temperature Of Your Athlon

Quieter But Heavier: AVC 112C80

AVC appears to have developed the 112C80 to prove that cooling is the sum of not only the total air flow, the size and shape of the underside, but is also affected by the thickness of the cooler walls. The surface area of the 112C80 is five percent smaller than that of the 112BJ0-1.

The underplate is 8 mm thick, while the cooling ribs have been thickened accordingly, to 1.1 mm. They have also been extended by another centimeter.

The end product is a relatively quiet aluminum cooler that offers outstanding cooling capabilities.
