44 x 44 x 5 mm of Copper Plate
Contrary to heat sinks which use a copper core (copper poured inside aluminium), we use more material over the DIE where high energy flows (copper plate) and in the external areas where low energy flows, less material (only 5mm aluminium plate). Thus we achieve a better efficiency, hence better cooling performance without increasing the weight.
Tin Connection between Copper and Aluminium
The heat transfer of conventional copper cores onto aluminium is ensured by thermal compound, which transfers the warmth extremely poorly compared to metals. In contrast to this we use a super-thin tin film. This has the advantage of approx. 25-times higher heat conductivity of tin compared with the thermal compound. Disadvantages are higher manufacturing costs and appearance.
Extra Large Heatsink
The wider and longer heat sink offers despite smaller overall height (33 mm of incl. copper plate) compared to silent better results. The width of 76 mm is in range as AMD intended conform, except in the area directly beside the socket by AMD defined as "height restriction Area". This has the consequence that the heatsink will not fit on approx. 10% of all current mainboards. For these cases there is an appropriate Compatibility list.
Airflow optimized Fan Blades
The Slim Silent Pro is the first fan, which utilizes fan blades which have been optimized for airflow, thereby achieving the same air volume at a lower number of revolutions, which softens the sound development and increases service life.
The Fan has been mounted onto 4 Rubber supports to stop vibrations being transmitted to the heatsink.
Great attention has been paid to the installation procedure. Again a Philips screwdriver is needed, but owing to the screwdriver guidance and the joint both the installation was simplified significantly as well as the de-installation and is now even possible under extremely close space conditions in the PC Case.
Naturally the Slim Silent Pro utilizes all 6 hooks of the socket, which leads as with our predecessor models to a low socket strain. This measure grasps since it has never once come to a hook breakage.
Favorable Price Performance Ratio
The Slim Silent offers an excellent and affordable - noise - performance relationship.
