Winamp, it really whips a Llama's ass !!


Globalwin FKP32 - Page 1/2
Rating : N/A Review Date :April 29, 2000


After the FCPGA cpu's hit the market, there were many companies who followed suit and tried to come up with products that will allow overclockers like us to push the cpu higher and cooler.Now why was this a problem for cooler manufacturers ? Due to the low height of the flipchip most socket 370 coolers the side or bottom of the cooler will come in contact with the zif socket lever. So overclockers come up with the idea to use a metal plate to raise the heatsink or even alter the heatsink so that it doesn't come in contact with the Ziff socket lever. Now this is where Globalwin came up with their FKP32.

As soon as I got the cooler out of the box the first thing that caught my eye was the YS Tech Fan 60mm, 3 wire 12v fan. This 60 mm fan looks huge compared to the size of the black heatsink. For those of you who are familiar with the FDP32 and FEP32, that made Globalwin well known for their well-done, highly efficient oversize fans the FKP 32 is much smaller in size if compared to the other two. In fact if you put the FDP32 and FKP32 you might just say to yourself how is this small little cooler be able to cool as well as the FDP32.

Compared to the stock fan that came with the celeron this fan makes more noise, but then again if CFM's is what you're after then it's just a small price you have to pay for the increased airflow. Installation consists of slapping on a dab of grease that is supplied as well on the core, placing the heatsink onto the celeron and attaching the metal retainer spring to the tabs on the sides of the ZIF socket. The cooling fan is mounted with spring clips for quick and easy removal for cleaning or replacement. The heatsink spring clip is very strong which hold the unit firmly in place on the celeron processor.
