Dynatron Genius G950 Heatsink goes the chunky route

A performance heatsink has to meet certain criteria in order to get people’s attention. They have to look imposing, a quality build is a must, and cramming in as many features as possible will get a cooling fiend’s attention.

The Dynatron Genius G950 Heatsink does a good job on all of those points and manages to perform well for a single fan cooler. FrostyTech has the review:

The Genius G950 is compatible with both Intel 775/1156/1366 and AMD AM2/AM3 processor families, but none of the thermal techniques applied in its construction are revolutionary or innovative. The Genius G950 does have a base of exposed heatpipes, but plenty of heatsink designs have adopted exposed heatpipes for all the real and perceived benefit implied. In fact, examining the base of the Genius G950 we’re left with the sense that Dynatron engineers may have dropped a copper base plate to make the Genius G950 retroactively conform to the exposed heatpipes trend.

A good solution although some mounting hardware for added fans would surely make it a force to be reckoned with.
