13 Intel Core i7 LGA 1366 CPU Coolers ComparedFri, May 29, 2009 - 12:00 AM
The second cooler in the new ISGC line up is the ISGC-400. This is a low profile down draft cooler. Like the ISGC-300, the ISGC-400 uses the new ISGC 12 fan and all the same mounting hardware.
- Model Number: CLP0540
- Intel Socket LGA1366: Core i7, Socket LGA 775 : Core 2 Extreme / Core 2 Quad / Core 2 Duo / Pentium D / Pentium 4 / Pentium / Celeron D / Celeron
- AMD Socket AM2/AM2+ : Phenom / Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 X2 / Athlon 64 / Sempron
- Aluminum Fins
- Aluminum Extrusion Cover + Copper Base
Looking from the top we can see the nice spacing of the fins and all 6 individual heatpipes.
Looking from the side, I wasn’t too sure if the cooler should sit like this, but this is how it came out of the box. After I tested it I tried to bend it level with no luck.
On top of the base there is an aluminum heatsink.
The base of the ISGC-400 is just like its sibling 300; it is not that good but easily fixed with some polishing.
