  • They work

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    They work. Simple as that.
    It's several tiny, tiny aluminum radiators with self adhesive thermal pads.
    No visual defects on my order

    Cons:

    Depending on the size and temperature of what you are trying to cool down, the miniature size of these ribs might be too small.
    You can't attach a fan to them(which isn't really a con, since that's obvious) so you rely on whichever air movement you have already.

    OtherThoughts:

    I used several packs of these in an experiment for my graphics card in a hope to reduce the temperature during crypto mining.
    Previously the second core was at 100-103 degrees Celsius at 60-70% fan speed - which is LOUD.
    Now the second core is STILL at 100-103, but the fan speed at only 50-60%, which is a huge improvement.
    The cooldown time after use is also slightly shorter.

    Bottomline:

    Great heatsinks at good value.
    They are SMALL! Buy several bags if you plan on using them for something larger.
    Supereasy to attach due to the self adhesive thermal pads - BE ADVISED, this is a one time only thing. If you mess up you probably won't be able to re attach it with the same pad.
