Neng Tyi P365 Lil' Turbine Heatsink Review
Neng Tyi P365 Lil' Turbine Heatsink Review
Abstract: One good way to do that is to slap on a massive copper heatsink with a massive Nidec Beta SL fan. At this point the only thing cooler would be to turn off your machine...

As always our thanks goes out to Mr. Richard Lin for letting us take a close look at this unique bonded-fin copper heatsink. When we took this heatsink out of the box there were a few things we noticed right off the bat that made it standout.

Firstly this one of only a few heatsinks we've ever seen to use Nidec fans. Nidec make very, very high quality fans, and since most of the other Neng Tyi heatsinks we've seen seem to be content with Motor One fans that says something.

What does a 60mm low profile Nidec fan strapped to a low-profile copper-based heatsink tell you? In one word - servers. Overclocked Pocket PC would have been an acceptable answer too.

This is where the P365 gets its' nick name from. Looking down onto the glass-fiber reinforced fan blades of the Nidec Beta SL, it just looks like a turbine. The only bad thing about this fan is the size of the motor. At over 30mm in diameter it puts a large dead spot right over the processors core.

This is a short heatsink. It is no more than 40mm high! I must say that such a low profile heatsink is a bit of rarity these days.

The unique fin assembly is bonded to the very thick and heavy copper base of the Lil' Turbine. One side of the copper is stepped to enable it to properly fit over the cam lever of the socket. The stainless steel clip is very easy to use and comes with a ver accessible thumb lever.

Without the fan attached its a bit easier to see the clip on the lil' Turbine. also notice that the fins are not cut all the way through. The top portion of every fin remains above the clip. This is very rare to see as the clip channel in most extruded heatsinks is cut directly into the metal.

Again notice the nice thumb lever on the clip - it works very well, and requires no screw driver.

You'll first see the two depressions in the base of the heatsink and wonder what the heck is up. Those two marks are used during the manufacturing process to properly align the fin assembly on the otherside of the heatsink.

The stepped area doesn't look very straight in this image, but it is in fact true. We removed the green Bergquist pad on the base of the heatsink and found that it gave us a slight performance increase over using it.

A minimal amount of lapping would make this base perfectly smooth, though it is already quite flat.

Time to check on how this heatsink stood up to the venerable reference heatsinks. Which in case you're wondering, are the Volcano II, and Vantec FCE model. On to the Frosty Synthetic Temperature Test platform...
