Enzotech Heatsink Lineup

Today we have a few items I wanted to share a few close up shots of.  Often we all have an unusual hot spot on a card or board that needs some extra cooling.  Typically, extra cooling the factory forgot or more often than not, didn't expect to need.  Anyone doing even some low level tweaking will see fairly quickly that system stability and performance is directly tied to proper thermal management.  So whether you are looking to cool down a card that runs a little warm or squeeze out that last drop out of an overclock, Enzotech has something for you.  Let's check a few of these out.

Enzotech CNB-R1 Northbridge Cooler
Street Price: $17
Available here

Enzotech's CNB-R1 Northbridge Cooler package consists of a number of items giving it mounting capability over a variety of applications.  Provided the number of mounting and retention clips, it would be safe to assume the CNB-R1 could be used to cool other applications to include GPUs.  Included with the mounting hardware and the cooler itself is a small tube of Arctic Silver Ceramique Thermal Paste.

The CNB-R1 is a circular cooler made of 100% solid copper.  It measures 45 mm wide and 30mm high.  Although, small the 100% copper end of it does tip the scale at 120gms.  Notice the convection rods.  Each rod is circular is shape maximizing surface area for cooling. 

Here are a few more quick shots.  The base of this Enzotech cooler remains true to the high quality lapping we have seen from them in the past.  A true shaver.


Our last pic of the CNB-R1 is with one of the retention clips in place.  A simple setup that allows for easy installation whatever you choose to install it on.

Enzotech MST-81 MOSFET Cooler
Street Price: $14
Available here

The Enzotech MST-81 MOSFET Cooler is specifically designed for motherboard applications.  Officially supported ASUS and Gigabyte motherboards are as follows.

ASUS: P5E3 Deluxe, P5E3, P5E3-DWiFi-AP, P5K Premium/WiFi-AP, P5K3 Premium/WiFi-AP, P5K3 Deluxe/WiFi-AP, P5K Deluxe/WiFi-AP, P5K-E/WiFi-AP, P5K WS, Commando, P5B Premium Vista Edition, P5B Deluxe, P5B Deluxe/WiFi-AP, Striker, P5N32-E SLI, Striker Extreme and the M2N32-SLI Deluxe.

Gigabyte: GA-965P-DQ6, GA-965P-DS3P, GA-965P-DS4, GA-M59SLI-S5, GA-M57SLI-DS4, GA-M57SLI-S4, GA-MA790FX-D5 and the GA-MA790FX-D6.

Now with the "supported boards" listed don't forget that the plastic retention clips on the sides can be easily removed allowing you to mount the MST-81 on other applications.  My first thought is the rear memory cooling plate on a Radeon HD4870x2 that I run in my personal LAN box.  We all know the HD4870x2 runs HOT with the factory cooler this may be a solution.


Back to its specified application you can see the thermal pad on the base of the MST-81.  This pad allows a nice mounted pad over your mainboard components when the unit is mounted with its included push pins.
