Akasa AK-920-2 ... AM2 INTEL Pentium 4, Pentium-D, Core 2 Duo & Core 2 Quad Re-modified Evo-120 v2 super-silent hi-performance heatpipe cooler. New design copper block and improved retention greatly increases thermal transfer and dissipation. Evo-120 v2 utilises hi-level heatpipe technology with 3 extra hi-capacity 8mm heatpipes ensure maximum heat transfer. The new design copper base facilitates efficient heat absorption and the 120mm aluminum fine-fin heatsink provides rapid thermal dissipation. The EVO-120 v2 is a multi-platform device for both Intel and AMD sockets (including socket AMD AM2). The 120mm amber fan ensures good airflow with ultra quiet acoustics at 15 dB(A). A fan speed control unit is supplied giving RPM choice to the user. Note : This Heatpipe cooler does not need to be assembled in a vertical mode, the heatpipes work independently of horizontal or vertical installation. How do heatpipes work? The heatpipe is filled with vapourisable liquid. 1. Heat is absorbed in the evaporating section 2. Fluid boils to vapour phase 3. Heat is released from the top section via the fins; vapour condenses to liquid 4. Liquid is returned to the evaporating section Ultra quiet, 15 dB(A) performance cooler Super-silent 12cm amber fan Hi-grade aluminium fine-fins Multi platform application for both Intel and AMD Socket, including AM2 3 ultra-high capacity 8mm heatpipes for rapid heat dissipation New design copper base, suitable for AM2 and improved retention greatly increase thermal transfer and dissipation Manual speed control on PC backplate

My cousin built my computer for me and it did everything I needed it to throughout school and for years after but sadly last year I noticed it making some loud noises and then suddenly it would stop loading up and tell me that there was an error with the fan. Being me I decided to turn it off and back on again and hope for the best. This method worked for a while but I knew it wouldn't last. I had a feeling it was time I fixed the problem instead of ignoring it and I didn't want to find one day it wouldn't turn on again and then all my files would be lost. Yes, I have now done a proper back-up (finally!). One of those things I always meant to do but could ... Read the complete review

This is one of the best available coolers for socket 939 (although it does support other platforms) in terms of low noise and awesome cooling performance. It has a solid copper base and three large heatpipes up to the finely thinned radiator which is cooled by a quiet 120mm fan. It comes with a PCI back plate adapter with a fan speed controller knob on it. On minimum it is completely silent, on max it is fairly noticeable. I have been very impressed with its low noise. The CPU temperature pretty much sits at 37°C all the time. I have the speed up from minimum just a bit. I bought this for my newer large PC in the Antec P180 case. It is fitted on an Asus ...
