    If you look closely you can see that the fins are bent up from the skiving, making the heat sink one continuous block of aluminum, without the need for welding.

    Here is a blurb from Nexus on what skiving actually is:
    SkiveTek® is one of the worlds most advanced technologies. It is a new concept and permits the production of heat sinks with a precise and super fine detail previously considered impossible. SkiveTek® represents a process of shaping materials to produce lightweight, high fin density thermal solutions. Base plate and fins are constructed out of one piece of 99.5% pure aluminum by cutting the material in thin layers, bending the fins in place. No bonding, welding, soldering or adhesive is involved; the joint between fin and base is continuous aluminum.
