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
DFI has a pretty interesting setup here. The main cooler is comprised of 3 aluminum heatsinks placed over the PWM, Northbridge, and Southbridge. Each is connected by a single heatpipe which is then physically bolted down to the PCB.
Pictures seem to do a better job describing the system so check them out.
Installation of the Transpiper is very similar to how it installs on the P35 series motherboard. Please refer to that review for photos of this installation. The only major difference is the lack of a copper plate to connect the processor to the transpiper.
