CoolJag Falcon 92-Al and Falcon 92-Cu Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
If you have ever researched heatsinks, chances are you have heard of CoolJag. They are a surprisingly large heatsink company whos products have traditionally not been targeted at the enthusiast market. However, they have recently released some aggressively designed heatsinks. How do they perform? Lets find out. X-bit Labs has just reviewed the CoolJag Falcon 92-Al and Falcon 92-Cu heatsinks.
Lets see what they had to say:
The CPU coolers from CoolJag have made a highly positive impression on me. These efficient, quiet and rather compact coolers are sure to find their place on the market and in PC enthusiasts system cases. The pricing is important too as there is a lot of worthy competitors in this market sector. Its hard to point out any defects or drawbacks in these coolers. They dont support Socket 478 and Socket A, but this is normal nowadays. There are problems with the PWM regulator and thermal sensor, yet they are not critical because a super-cooler must be quiet and the Falcon 92 coolers wouldnt be such at the maximum speed of 2500rpm. The auxiliary heatsink above the pipes isnt designed well, which is a single drawback I can find, but I think an overclocker can easily transform this heatsink from decorative into a functional element.
It is pretty disappointing that neither of these products could outperform a heatsink that was originally released in 2005 (Thermaltake Big Typhoon). If they were priced cheaper, they could be worthy of recommendation, but as it stands, I would look at the numerous other heatsinks on the market, particularly those based on the heatpipe tower design.
