GTSticky Posted January 22, 2004 Posted January 22, 2004 Yo's. I picked up the dp-102 for my p4 last weekend, but had some issues. The sink is pre-assembled for Athlon CPUs, which means that if you want to use it with a p4 you have to disassemble it and bolt-on the p4 bottom plate. Unfortunately, the plate/supertube assembly for p4 in the version I got doesn't fit properly. With the bottom not even close to flat, the sink works poorly (as expected) and yields temps in the high 60s under load. ack! I called the company and immediately connected to their support rep. He assured me that a few of these went out with bad p4 plates and he would send me a new one. I should have my 2.4c chip today from Will Smith and I'm hoping to get that sink by tomorrow so I can spend part of the weekend building and testing the system. The sink had to be modified to fit the standard p4 socket as well. The retention mechanisms hit not the caps or the northbridge cooler as expected, but instead actually hit the mechanism to which they are supposed to attach. This took about 20 minutes to fix with a dremel. With the fan guards cut away and the new plate, I hope to have good news to report after I've had a chance to test it. I was impressed with AeroCool's support, and the sink looks to be ready to blow away my current cooling setup. Wish me luck getting a good fit between the new plate and the supertube. I had started to lap the thing to "make it fit" but luckily thought better of it and called AeroCool. So, where's the official dp-102 review?
