Massive Cooling Potential
1. STACKED FIN ARRAY DESIGNStacked fin array design enlarges up to 50% heat dissipation, provides the maximum surface of heat dissipation.
2. DIRECT TOUCH CROSS HEAT-PIPEThe U-shape dual heat-pipe connect three MOS heatsinks to enlarge the surface of heat dissipation.
3. DOUBLE-SIDED M.2 SHIELD FROZRDouble-sided M.2 thermal solution keep M.2 SSDs safe while preventing throttling, making them run cooler and faster.
4. ALUMINIUM BACKPLATEThe aluminium baseplate cool down the MOSFET temperature with dedicated thermal pads.
5. 7W/MK THERMAL PADHigh quality 7W/mK MOSFET thermal pads and extra choke thermal pads ensure all cores running in high performance.
6. ENLARGED PCH HEATSINKMSI replaced the PCH fan with enlarged heatsink design to reduce dust and noise as well as maintain high heat dissipation efficiency.
