I have read about the Sunon Waturbo on Toms Hardware page and do you think I
can find out where to buy it ?
I liked to look of the Cooler and even emailed the company and they really
were not helpfull at all they said I had to contact their agents in
Australia who told me it would at least 8 weeks if they had a minimum of 10
orders. Is this Sunon REALLY interested in selling their products or
what??????? I have not even seen any on eBay
Why does Toms Hardware bother talking about a product that no one seams to
have, this is not the first time they have done this. A while ago they
reviewed a AM2 3800 35W CPU that was september and I have not seen any of
these for sale.
Have you seen anyone selling a Sunon Waturbo please hollar I would really
like to know.

Re: Sunon Waturbo
What is theta_R for the cooler ? A compact design, with not many fins on it,
cannot cool very well. No matter how many pints of bourbon are stored in
A good cooler, requires two things. It needs a good base design - the base
has to spread the heat and couple it into the cooling fins. Then, a large
enough fin area has to be used, to promote good heat transfer into the air,
with a minimum of effort from the fan. In other words, a fin assembly larger
than the CPU socket area, can allow a large cooling fan to run slowly,
and still give adequate cooling.
That Sunon looks very ordinary, and probably has a theta_R of around 0.35C/W
or higher. The retail cooler that comes with your processor, will also be
in the 0.35C/W operating range. A good aftermarket cooler has a theta_R
of less than 0.20C/W.
(Not very big)
(CNPS9500 with theta_R of 0.16C/W or less.)
