Has anyone done any comparisons with this heatsink and the ICE one?

Hey @Tony254187,

I had a quick look around and couldn’t find any obvious comparisons on the internet. hopefully, someone gets onto this, the result would be really interesting.

Looking at both fans though I doubt either one will let you down in terms of cooling. They both seem to be overkill for anything I could consider using a Pi 5 for but who knows. Someone may be pushing the limits of what that board can do and actually need all this cooling!

I would love to see what that project looks like. :astonished:

I couldn’t find any comparisons either.

I wish I could find a way to justify the high price of this heatsink though. :rofl:

It looks very sleek, but I have paid less for heatsinks used on x86 CPUs. They tend to run ALOT hotter that the SOCs on a pi too. I guess it comes down to economies of scale.

Thanks for your reply! Enjoy the rest of the week.

Regards,
Tony

The official active cooler was more than enough to cool the Pi 5 fully overclocked, I doubt you would see much of a difference between the two given how overkill they are, maybe a few degrees at best I would guess.

But in terms of cool factor, the Argon THRML is REALLY clean in that matte black.

I know right!! I can’t justify the price though LOL. I already have the official active cooler as well. It is just a shame it isn’t as quiet as everyone on Youtube touted it to be. I could hear it several rooms away. While brushing my teeth. With an ELECTRIC toothbrush.
