     It was not long ago when I held the original Kingwin Revolution (RVT-9225) in my hands and said "This would be great as a 120mm heatsink".  It appears the gods of overclocking have heard my plea, as my wish has been granted with the RVT-12025.  So, is this new heatsink truly a blessing, or are they a curse?  Read on to find out!


 

Kingwin RVT-12025:

     The RVT-12025 is essentially a super-sized version of the original Revolution.  While the original used a 92mm fan, the 12025 uses a 120mm fan, which should help to improve performance. 

Features:

  • Intel: Socket 775 CPU, Core 2 Extreme/Quad/Duo, Pentium Extreme Edition/D, Celeron D.

  • AMD: Socket AM2/754/939/940 CPU, Athlon 64/FX/X2, Opteron, Sempron.

  • Heat-pipe Direct Touch Technology (H.D.T.)

  • Air-Flow Spoiler.

  • Anti-Vibration Rubber.

  • 3 pcs High Performance U Type Heat-Pipe Direct Touch w/ CPU.

  • Light Weight.

  • High Performance & Easy Installation.

  • 120 mm High Efficient PWM Fan.

  • 3 in 1 Application: LGA775 push-pin/K8 & AM2 Tool-Less Clip.

First Look:

     So here is our first look at what the bigger brother Revolution looks like.  As you can see, it is typical of many tower heatsinks out there.

The profile shows off the three heatpipes, as well as the high fin count. 

The back of the heatsink also shows off the fins.  Again, it is very similar to many tower heatsinks out there. 

     Now we get to see what makes the Revolution different from every heatsink out there.  This is the Direct Touch Heatpipe system we talked about before, where the heatpipes make direct contact with the CPU.  The copper appears to be very smooth and flat, unfortunately the aluminum block looks almost dirty in comparison.  Let us hope it doesn't hurt performance.

     Included with the heatsink, clockwise from left:  Intel style push-pin brackets,  AMD style lever bracket, spoiler, screws, thermal paste, and 3-pin to Molex power converter.
