Not only does this heatsink work with 2U cases, the CoolJag JAC16EC is also compatible with Desktop and SFF/HTPC setups. For our real world testing results, we used the following ATX desktop system, due to the lack of available 2U chassis’ in our testing lab.
|Processor:||Intel Pentium 4 530 (3.0GHz) @ 3.15GHz|
|Motherboard:||Tyan Tomcat i915 S5120|
|Memory:||512MB Mushkin PC4000|
|Graphics Card:||ATI X300SE 128MB|
|Hard Drives:||Western Digital 80GB|
|Optical Drives:||Lite-On DVD-ROM|
|Cooling:||3 x 120mm fans|
|Power Supply:||ePower XScale 600W|
As with all of our recent heatsink reviews, idle testing occurs by allowing the testbed to idle for 30 minutes. Load testing occurred by running CPUBurn-In v1.00 for 30 minutes. LM_Sensors 2.8.8 with GKrellM 2.2.4 recorded all temperatures. The ambient temperature in our testing location was maintained at 20°C.
|Intel Stock HSF:||43.0||54.0|
With the all copper fins and base, we were initially shocked when the monitoring utility had read 45° and 55°, two and one degree higher than the Intel LGA775 Stock HSF respectively. However, the CoolJag JAC16EC maintains a much lower profile for 2U compatibility, than that of the Intel heatsink. The heatsink fan is also side mounted and is merely 60mm in diameter. Even with this small setback in performance, we still would consider the CoolJag JAC16EC (OAK-D) a possible heatsink for use in LGA775 based servers.
