Abstract: On the plus side, this finish leaves the heatsink looking like a shiny aerodynamic block of copper.

Initial performance figures show us that the Cho-Liang may actually be better than we had first thought. The temperature results on the small interface die at 100W are especially good. On the larger die the heatsink evidentially doesn't have the features needed to provide very good cooling and shows elevated results.

These are the numbers we have all been waiting to see, and the all-copper Cho Liang CB0315U17 heatsink manages to produce some pretty good results. In fact, the Cho Liang heatsink is able to keep up with some rather more expensive heatsinks and come in under the 50 degree mark - something we always like to see.

The performance heatsink barrier starts at about the 40 degree mark so this heatsink isn't quite there with this particular fan, but it really isn't that far off either. Most of the heatsinks which manage performance level cooling use much louder, and much faster RPM fans. Even though the CB0315U17 comes in a few degrees behind (pretty much the same if you factor in % error) the all aluminum CB0307U17 there is room to grow. The performance we saw here is with a relatively slow 3500RPM fan. If a 38mm Delta fan were attached to the heatsink in its place you can be sure the results would change for the better.

With its very thin copper fins, and all copper construction the Cho-Liang teeters on the edge of near-performance cooling, and offers in its standard package some good cooling for the cost, and moderate noise levels.
