After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
A new method being pioneered by Coolink is a core contact mounting method that removes these gaps and provides a completely smooth surface between the CPU and the heatsink. Coolink calls this technology Gapless Direct Touch (GBT) and does a great job at combining the two previous methods together.
