After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
In this review we will be looking at the Thermalright AXP-140 low profile heatsink and new 1366 mounting system. As you may have guessed the AXP-140 was originally designed for the 775 socket system but with a quick hardware change you can apply this heatsink to the Core i7.
Of course the question now, how well does this heatsink work on the Core i7 platform?
A similar analogy can be applied to the AXP-140. This high capacity cooler was designed for the 775 and A64 platforms and could easily be migrated over to the Core i7 with a simple change of mounting hardware.
