After sending my AVIA TBird 1.2 back due to it not working at all, not even stable @ 1200. I decided to purchase a new HS to replace my Global Win FOP38. Went for the new Taisol HS, has a copper insert which contacts with the processor and the rest is Aluminiun. Aside from having a really bad clip design it is really good.

Dropped the temp of my TBird 850 @ 1000 by 5 degrees!! I can also run the processor @ 1050 now without the temp touching 45 deg. The highest it's got has been 41. I run alot of 3D graphic apps. So push processor alot.

And it was only £15.00, not sure what that's in dollars, but it's pretty damn cheap. Cheaper than almost all other HS. But I did put a Delta fan on it.

Just thought I'd let everybody know. Would have gone for a glaciator, but didn't know where to get one in England. This HS is good, cheap and not too heavy.

Wildfire, what don't you like about the clip design on the Taisol HS??
I have the all alum one and I really think the clip with 3 point contact on each side is more stable. It is tighter than some, but it goes on easy for me.

i haven't used the taisol hsf, but I am shocked to find anyone can find it worse than that thing on the Fop38.

No way! The Taisol Clip design is really stable, 3 clips and all, but I had to take out my motherboard (luckily it's on a removable thing) and use a screwdriver to get the damn thing on!! I found a really easy way to get the GlobalWin FOP clips on. Take the fan off and push down on the clip with a phillips screw driver or a thin flat head and voila! off comes the clip!

But the Taisol one was really stiff. And it hurt my fingers way more than the Global Win.
