    In the Box

    • NCU-1000 fin unit with Heatlane technology
    • Presser plate
    • Copper heat spreader
    • Insulation rubber plate
    • Support plate
    • Thermal grease
    • 4x Knurled nuts
    • 4x Plastic nuts
    • 4x Plastic standoff collars
    • 4x Flathead mounting screws
    • 4x Presser plate mounting screws


    The first thing you will notice when you take the heat sink out of the box is its incredible weight, due largely to the huge copper heat spreader. The construction of the NCU-1000 is very impressive, the fins are strong and rigid, the plates and screws are all finely machined.

    Upon closer inspection of the fin unit you will notice that the body is comprised of many parallel tubes running down the side, along the bottom and up the other side of the unit. The fins are attached in wave formation along the inside and the outside of the U-shape. The tubes are filled with thermally conductive liquid and essentially act as heat pipes, transferring the heated liquid to the top of the unit an the cooled liquid back down to the bottom in a cyclic fashion.

    Actually there is a nice little explanation on the box:

    " The Heatlane is TS Heatronics's original technology, which circulates the working fluid within the meandering capillary tube. The technology based on the operative principle which is completely different from the conventional heat pipe. It realizes effective heat transfer not only horizontally but also from the top to the bottom (top heat) as well as better heat transfer capability than the conventional heat pipe."
