AVGS CA-0068 Review with online sound

In this review we have tested the AVGS CA-0068 Cooler and measured the temperature results with our test setup. Additionally you can listen to an embedded MP3 fan sound sample of the fan on the respective heatsink.

Size over all L/B/H +++ 60/55/65 mm The cooler is just as big as the socket !
Cooling output + 16,2 CFM (~6400 rpm)
Noise level + 36 dB (A) Anyway high rotation speed the fan is still quiet. Listen to the sound:
Mounting ++ The contact pressure of the bracket is quite high, but the mounting with a screwdriver is very simple.
Cooling results — 49° C at 1,75 Volt CPU Core voltage and 53° Celsius at 1,90 Volt Vcore.

General impression

o I had promised myself better cooling results of this complex construction, but once again it shows that small fan with lower cooling output can’t help overclocked CPU to keep a cool head. Although the lamellas are partially copper in order to derive the warmth air somewhat better but not a higher temperatures. Unfortunately this cooler is not fit for using with Peltier Element ! Many thanks to AVGS Technology for the AVGS CA0068 Testsample.
