The initial results are not looking too promising for this rather large aluminum heatsink as it comes in very low in the list of reference heatsinks here. Let's look at the final rise above ambient temperatures to really see how the Tocools AIM stands out.

The final performance of the Tocools AIM is a little better, but still rather low on the totem pole. It is important to remember that the unit we tested is still very much a pre-production cooler. Most of Tocools heatsinks right now are based on a triangular base at the bottom of the fins, and I would suspect that this heatsink will be seeing similar treatment before a production version is actually released.

In this orientation the Tocools AIM doesn't really offer much to the cooling world. It is a good OEM cooler I suppose, but there are much smaller heatsinks with similar performance so the benefit really isn't here yet. A little extra work may be able to whip the AIM into better shape. If the latest crop of heatsinks to arrive in the lab are any indication, Tocools are steadily on their way to making a better cooler, so we'll be looking forward to those, and passing on the AIM model.
