HOW IT WORKS: The #1 Rank
is considered the current Top low-profile heatsink meeting the specific height limitation, #5 is the 5th BEST. Full size heatsinks are not included here but do offer significantly better thermal results. Only heatsinks that Frostytech has tested are included in these lists; thus we guarantee this list is incomplete, that it's not an indication of "the best low-profile heatsink ever" and that rankings will frequently change with each chart update.
