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 and utilizes the temperature bandwidth of the CPU more effectively.
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 Copper 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 Copper Silent TC offers an excellent and affordable - noise - performance relationship.
