GlobalWin TAK68 and CAK-II 16
Review by Paul Machado on May 10, 2002

Products Supplied By: GlobalWIN
Retail Price: $35 USD TAK68, $26 USD CAK-II 16


As a reviewer and like most of you out there I have seen my share of HSF combinations that I have been able to test and review. With so many companies manufacturing heatsinks the competition has become fierce and each company wants to make their product different than any other out there.  GlobalWIN is one of these companies and they sure like to be different. With the release of the TAK68 they were sure looking for some attention and they have certainly received mine. The TAK68 and the CAK-II 16 are two of the latest products released by GlobalWIN and are surely making a statement. Although the CAK-II 16 may just look like another copper based HSF combination or GlobalWIN's older CAK-II 38 but how well or not it performs will make or break this HSF.
