1. Direct-Touch Heatpipe II

With an extra large 8mm heatpipe and made from a new manufacturing process that narrows the gap between the heatpipe and heatsink, the new Direct-Touch Heatpipe greatly help transfers heat on the MOSFET.

2. 2X M.2 Thermal Guard

Enlarged double-sided M.2 heatsink prevents high-speed, large capacity PCIe 3.0 SSDs with double side flash from throttling due to overheating.

3. Fins-Array II

Fins-Array II use a new louvered stacked-fins design which not only increases surface area by 300% compared to traditional heatsinks but also improves thermal efficiency with better airflow and heat exchange.

4. LAIRD 5 W/mK Thermal Pad

By using 1.5mm thicker 5 W/mK thermal conductivity pads, it can transfer 4x more heat compared to traditional thermal pads in the same time.

Fins-Array II

Fins-Array II uses brand new louvered stacked fins technology which is usually only used on industrial equipment that need compact heat exchangers. It has a special secondary fins structure that enhances heat transfer performance.

Louver Directed Flow

Heat flow that goes through fins will enter from the leading edge of the louver and is then directed by other louvers or fins. This louver directed flow can greatly improve heat transfer performance.

Fins-Array II

Fins-Array II uses brand new louvered stacked fins technology which is usually only used on industrial equipment that need compact heat exchangers. It has a special secondary fins structure that enhances heat transfer performance.

Circulation Zone

Because of pressure difference and flow separation, a circulation zone will be formed between louvered fins. This circulation will cause flow entrain and eject in the vortice form which improves thermal efficiency.
