Fins-Array Heatsink with 6mm Heatpipe and High Thermal Conductivity Pad

X299 AORUS MASTER uses Fins-Array Heatsink which increases the heat dissipation area by 300% compared to traditional heatsinks of the same size. By using LAIRD 1.5mm thick, 5W/mK high thermal conductivity pad, it can transfer 2.7x more heat than traditional thermal pads in the same time period. 6mm Heatpipe helps to transfer heat between two heatsinks which improves the overall thermal balance of the MOSFETs.
