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.
The Slim Silent PRO TC uses a thermally regulated fan system. For regulation the temperature of the heatsink is measured, which corresponds over a correction curve directly with the CPU core temperature. In contrast to the control over the air temperature the method used by arctic cooling is more complex, but substantially more precise, which lowers average noise levels.......
