Great heatsinks!

  • Summary: These are great but too expensive from coolerguys... you can buy the exact same ones from deal extreme for less than $3 for a pack of 8.

what fantastic little heatsinks

Benny, Amazon
14 May 2013
  • Summary: I applied these to an mk802iii PC I'm currently building. I removed the plastic case on the android stick and cleaned the processor, 4 GPU chips and ram with alcohol and stuck these guys on there. Even passively, (without airflow from a fan,) these things kept the stick cool over clocked. I'm going to be picking up some more of these to keep on hand! The adhesive bonds VERY well to the chip as I put on on and wanted to make a small correction. Nope!

Self adhesive and usable on small devices like NAS and Raspberry Pi devices

NotOnline, Amazon
1 May 2013
  • Summary: Small, good heat transfers, good adhesive bond, small, efficient design and size. I bought these to use in my ZyXel NAS device which always had an over heating issue. The issue was corrected with removing the heat shield from the CPU in the NAS and adhering one of these on to the CPU. I also used one in the Raspberry Pi device I have and it to worked really well.

They aren't blue

Josh, Amazon

  • Summary: Doesn't really impede their ability to cool anything, but I was expecting them to be blue in color. They are standard aluminum heatsinks.

Wish they were stickier

Brian, Amazon
9 February 2013
  • Summary: I tried to use these on my video card ram, as I removed the ram sinks/fan assembly when I water cooled my system. I had to get additional thermal tape to make these stay on, as the video ram sinks point down (as most do). If they were stickier they would be great.

Nice

Charles Jost, Amazon
19 December 2012
  • Summary: I bought these to stick on over heating switches. They were easy to use and self adhesive. The ones I received were aluminum finished not that it maters since no one can see them anyway. They seem to be working well and are designed well to have a lot of surface area for the size.

Works well

Jon, Amazon
12 December 2012
  • Summary: I got these hoping they would fit a Raspberry Pi. They fit perfectly. One thing to note that I didn't read was that the color can vary and silver is most common. I was disappointed at first since I see blue in all the pics but it's my fault for not reading. Performance wise it seems to do rather well. I didn't measure an official temp for the Pi but i used my hand on the underside of the board. It's slightly (but noticeable) cooler with the heatsink on.

  • Summary: These are handy to cool various things on a motherboard. Currently using them to cool different IC's on an Intel D2500CCE mITX board. They are colored blue in the picture but mine are bare aluminum colored. Picture also shows a couple of tall heatsinks but they now only come in low profile.
  • Pros: -cheap, -includes 2 extra thermal pads
  • Cons: -all low profile, no large ones
