The Microcool northbridge cooler

 

 

The “North Pole” is the new active heat dissipator able to achieve extremely effective thermal control, whatever the conditions of use or the Front Side Bus frequency used. Although constructed from components already used for coolers for the latest generation CPUs, North Pole has proven to be easy to use. Thanks to its compact and functional design, it can be placed on any motherboard that is provided with the two standard mounting holes beside the chipset.

Technical specifications of NorthPole:

  • Dissipator: entirely in copper with high density fins
  • Fan: with high air and pressure capacity
  • Shell: in anodised aluminium for maximum protection and lightness
  • Hook: stirrup system with screws and matching easily adjusted spring
  • Accessories: aluminium heatsinks for MOSFET and PLL chips.

The “Hook Adapter” assembly for the “North Pole ” Cooler

The “Hook Adapter” is an exclusive installation system that makes possible the use of the Northpole heat dissipators on all motherboards that have the northbridge cooler attached through mounting holes. This particular adaptor was developed to guarantee a convenient and effective installation on the motherboard equipped with the latest generation IntelTM chipset (i865 and i875). This exclusive design and the high quality construction allow the regulation of attachment pressure using the screws, avoiding the possibility of accidental damage like detaching the mounting holes from the board. To facilitate the mounting procedure, four stabilizing rubber washers and an Allen wrench are provided in the package.

Included in the package:

  • Two standoffs for the mounting holes
  • Two brackets adapted for tabs
  • Four stabilizing rubber washers
  • One Allen wrench

The Microcool “Chipsinks”

 

The microcool ChipSinks are a complete family of passive heat dissipators, designed specifically for the correct cooling process for integrated motherboard chips, such as: frequency generators (PLL), power supply regulators (MOSFET), chipsets that control the peripherals (SouthBridge) and integrated controllers (RAID, SATA).

Microcool has developed these dissipators so that they are easily installable over the seated motherboard components that are generally lacking adequate cooling systems at the time of purchase, and that are always subject to intense heat during system overclocking and overvoltaging. The high quality thermally conductive adhesives allow rapid application and maximum thermal transfer. The surface treatment of anodized aluminum guarantees electrical insulation and maximum heat dissipation.

PART DIMENSIONS MATERIAL COATING WEIGHT
South Sink 30(L)x30(W)x30(H) mm Extruded Alluminum 6063 Anodized Alluminum 30g
PLL Sink 15(L)x12(W)x18(H) mm Extruded Alluminum 6063 Anodized Alluminum 5g
MOSFET Sink 12(L)x12(W)x18(H) mm Extruded Alluminum 6063 Anodized Alluminum 4g
Micro Sink 8,5(L)x8,5(W)x8(H) mm Extruded Alluminum 6063 Anodized Alluminum 1g

*All Microcool chipsinks use the Chomerics T405 Thermal Interface Pad to secure themselves to other surfaces

The package I recieved included both silver and black versions of the chipsinks. When purchased from a retailer you will get either one, but not both.
