5 out of 5 eggs Good value-for-dollar heatsink/fan for Intel 55-65 W CPUs 01/30/2016

This review is from: Dynatron K987 92mm Ball CPU Cooler for Intel LGA Socket 1151 / 1150 / 1155 / 1156

Pros: Dynatron's P985, K985, and K987 are all very similar. The blue tops (P985 and K985) have a two-ball fan and the red top (K987) has a one-ball fan. There might be slight differences between the heatsinks, but I cannot see any. Dynatron's website indicates that the blue-label fan has slightly higher airflow versus the red-label fan. Dynatron customer support told me that the fan assemblies could be swapped between the three units, but one would need to be careful not to bend the fins of the aluminum heatsink. At idle, neither the blue nor the red fans make any noise.

Any of the three units could be installed on LGA 775, 115x, or 1366 by using the proper mounts, which consist of a metal piece which screws onto the bottom of the heatsink and one or two pieces which anchor the heatsink onto the motherboard. However, if you bought a model intended for a different socket than the one you have, you'd have to buy the proper mounts from Dynatron, except for K987 which includes mounts for LGA 775, 115x, and 1366.

The bottom of the heatsink exhibits a large copper base. Some of the units come with pre-applied thermal paste and others come with a small tube of it. The latter ones have a clear plastic protector which must be removed. It brought the idle temperature of a 65 W i5 Sandy Bridge CPU down to 25 C and a 95 W i5 Sandy Bridge CPU down to the high 20s. However, while running Intel's IPDT, the 65 W i5 Sandy Bridge CPU rose to 50 C, while the 95 W i5 Sandy Bridge CPU rose to the low 60s. I would not use these heatsinks for gaming, overclocking, or applications where a high-wattage CPU would be stressed on a regular basis.

You will need to remove the motherboard from the case unless your case has a cut-out which allows access to the rear of the board. The metal pieces which anchor the heatsink have a sticky side, but I removed it with thumbnails and Goo-Gone for ultimate flexibility.

Cons: None, for the money.

Other Thoughts: I wish Dynatron would sell mounts for AMD CPUs.
