High performance 4U passive heatsink is designed for use with Intel Xeon Potomac MP and Nocona DP processors. The high-efficiency, low-pressure-drop fin design provides the necessary cooling capacity to support the processors' thermal requirements up to 200 W without the addition of system blowers or additional fans. The heatsink base consists of an aluminum frame and copper slug with embedded heat pipes to ensure good heat transfer to the fins. Hardware is captive to the mounting base to ease assembly to the standard CEK mounting hardware.
