The RDJD K702
The RDJD K702 is the K703's smaller brother. It uses exactly the same heatsink, but is equipped with two 52x10mm fans - identical to the fan used on the K701.
Despite the small fans, the K702 will not fit the ASUS K7M.
The K703 comes with two JMC DaTech 52mm fans. The K702 is not very noisy; it is among the most silent dual fan heatsinks in this comparison. Still, the heatsink design is not optimized for low noise - the slot between the two fans acts as a "whistle". If you put a piece of duct tape between the two fans, you can reduce the noise level a bit.
Both fans are connected
to a single three-pin MOLEX connector, which means that only one fan can be
The K702 uses the same great clips we already know from the K701, so all comments about installation made in the K701 review also apply.
Already, the K703 with its 60mm fans wasn't exactly convincing performance-wise; the K702, with smaller fans, is even less efficient. Priced at $30, the K702 cost as much as a VOS32 (which provides way better cooling), so the K702 isn't the cooler to choose if you're looking for a good price/performance ratio.
