LG Cable SHS X-500 CPU Cooler by Elladen & Co. Shamino Sep 10th, 05, 11:44 PM #1

When one thinks of LG, CPU coolers certainly do not come to mind. However, it seems that the Korean company is moving into the computer hardware arena, more specifically, the cooling arena.
We managed to obtain a sample of the LG SHS-X500, a heatsink designed for Socket 478, 754 and 939. Our member Elladen, yantronic and Blondi tests it out. Read on to find out more!

Someone made the mistake of saving the files in .gif format.. It only supports 256 colours by default...

i think elladan, yantronic and me did this whole review


this review looks easy but to measure temps and OC was hell with this cooler

the mounting: 101% Certified B1tch mounting. at least 3x tougher than the XP-90
