Dynatron Genius-G950 Heatsink
Taiwan-based Dynatron Corporation has been an active member of the aftermarket cooling industry since 1991; and although they've designed dozens of heatsinks and cooling products, very few people in North America are familiar with the name. The Dynatron Genius-G950 heatsink utilizes a twin-tower radiator design with a centrally-located cooling fan, very similar to the Cooler Master V8.
Four individual 8mm heat-pipe rods span across to both MicroFin heatsink radiators, but unfortunately the proprietary fan does not allow overclockers to replace the unit with one of their own choosing.
Features and Specification
The Dynatron Genius-G950 heatsink comes with a small tube of GE-Toshiba TIG830SP thermal compound, and a bolt-through mounting kit with backplate. The polished contact base works best with thin low-Viscosity thermal pastes, and covers large processors very well. Using both the overclocked AMD Phenom-II X4-965 BE (140W version) and six-core Gulftown Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition CPU's, Benchmark Reviews evaluates cooling performance with the Dynatron Genius-G950 CPU-cooler.
