The next cooler from Aerocool is the HT-102. It has been around for a while, and is one of the first heatsinks to utilize heatpipes. It has six heatpipes and is made entirely of copper, which absorbs heat better than aluminum. There is a plastic cover on it to direct air over the fins and provide mounting holes for two fans. One 80mm fan is included, but there are enough mounting screws for both if needed.
Our nickel reflects very well against the almost mirror finished base. This will help transfer heat from the CPU to the heatsink more efficiently. This cooler has the most mounting hardware included to span the most sockets. There is a backplate, two Intel 775 mounting brackets, an AMD 754/939 clip and screws, socket 478 clips, and an AMD Socket A clip (shows how long this cooler has been around). Thermal paste and installation instructions are standard as well.
The installation of the older HT-102 is much simpler than the newer X-Fire. You will need the two 775 clips, 4 long black screws for the fan, and the backplate. First mount the fan onto the outside plastic shell. Next, unscrew two black screws on the bottom of the base. Remove the little heatsink on the top of the base (it does nothing except hold the mounting clips between itself and the base). Place the two mounting clips at the side of the base and make sure their holes line up with the holes on the base. Screw the little heatsink back on the base with the clips on the middle. Now place the HT-102 on the CPU socket and screw the whole assembly onto the base beneath the motherboard. Make sure you tighten evenly for the best contact. Remember to plug in the fan.
