Copper heatsinks have a special place in
all of our hearts, and this bonded fin cooler made by a
company called Neng Tyi is an eye-catcher to be sure. But as
always, does it perform like we expect a copper heatsink to?
We first heard about Neng Tyi during Comdex
2000. After wandering past many resellers promoting the same cheap
ORB knockoffs we noticed a bunch of copper heatsinks based around a special
bonded fin assembly. The fins on all of Neng Tyi's heatsinks have little interlocking tabs
which hold them together independently of the framework.
The mechanism was displayed at Comdex and was especially interesting because you
could pick up an entire row of the fins without
them falling to pieces. The advantage to this system over other bonded fin
assembles, like the Ascent Cooler here, is that the top of each fin section can
remain open, rather then closed by a structural fold.
The open top allows more air to flow
across the fins. The assembly produces a much flatter base than what is possible with a
folded fin assembly. Our thanks goes out to Mr. Richard Lin from Neng
Tyi for giving us the opportunity to take a detailed look at this cool little copper
heatsink. So lets begin our look at the copper P366...
