FrostyTech has posted an Arkua 838T-7G 2U Pentium 4 Heatsink review
The 838T-7G heatsink from Arkua has already made its way into more than a few Small Form Factor PC's and desktops thanks to its small 2U stature, and easy clipping system. The heatsink makes use of the existing Pentium 4 heatsink retention mechanism and simply clips into place, with a small lever to then put the core under tension and finish off the installation. In those small book-sized systems and SFF PC's space is at a premium, and so manufacturers have taken to using heat pipes, or hybrid heatsinks like this unit from Arkua which are shorter than a typical P4 heatsink. Even though the space may be small, the goals remain the same - good cooling with little noise. Although the Arkua 838T-7G is not specifically designed as a low-noise cooler, its 70mm fan is pretty easy on the ears.
