   SKU:  
20176
   Shipping Weight:   0.1 lbs
   Part #: MC14

Features    [ Edit | History ]
 Introduction

The MC14 now receives an upgraded sticky pad with considerably enhanced adhesion.

The MC14 is a BGA memory Ramsink made of forged copper and optimized for convection cooling. It was designed for cooling of memory components such as those found in graphic cards, but it works equally well with motherboard VRM modules , compositing chips, or any SMC in need of superior cooling.

It is a perfect companion to our VGA liquid cooling solutions thus allowing high-end graphic cards to operate in virtual silence.

Features highlights

 
  • The MC14 is made of forged copper. The density of the pins has been calculated to offer maximum surface area to increase heat dissipation, while allowing the heated air to circulate freely between the pins.
  • High quality thermal pads: the high quality Thermattach T411 thermal tape offers excellent thermal conductivity and adhesion to the memory modules.
  • Quick, safe and easy installation: simply peel-off the protective paper, and press the Ramsink onto the component to be cooled
  • Ideal companion to the MCW55 GPU water-block
  • Sold in convenenient pack of 8 pieces.

 Performance and specifications

 
Material
 
Forged C110 copper
Dimensions
 
14mm (L) x 14mm (W) x 14.5mm (H)
Weight 0.3 oz (8.5 g)
C/W 9.0 (including TIM joint)
Maximum recommended heat load 5 Watts per heatsink

We conducted laboratory tests, comparing the MC14 to generic skived copper units such as shown below, and found a 6 °C improvement in component temperature at a 5 Watts heat load.

 
Test conditions: 5 W heat load 25 °C ambient OCZ
 
MC14x1
 
Junction Temperature 76.8 °C 70.3 °C

For reference, maximum junction (core) temperature in current GDDR3 memory modules is 125 °C (link)
Installation

   1. Remove the existing heatsink
   2. Carefully clean the surface of the memory modules with a degreaser (Xylene for example)
   3. follow the easy installation steps below
   4. Handle the heatsinks with care when they have just been installed onto the memory. Heat developped by the memory in operations will strengthen the bond of the thermal adhesive.

Pros
-Decent price
-Good little coolers
Cons
_If left for long periods of time really hard to get off, you end up bending the cooling pins or damaging the ram. So if you put them on consider them permanent.
Summary
Bought these for my gtx 680 4 gb card. Lowered temp by about 15 degrees on the ram.

Pros
all copper.
Good thermal pad.
Cons
nothing
Summary
These are some of the best heatsink you can get for memory. The stock pads stick really well if you clean your chip with 99% alcohol.

Pros
Cools the ram
Cons
tape sucks
Summary
I hate this tape it didnt work at all. I stuck the heat sinks on and left them overnight before touching the cards. In the morning installed the waterblock and installed my cards so i can cut tubing. Within 30 seconds about 90% of the heatsinks on two cards fell off - gahh. To fix this, i removed the rest of the heatsinks and put a dab of arctic silver 5 on the bottom. Problem solved and no heat sinks have fallen off yet.

Pros
Pure Copper. Good airflow design. Adhesive/thermal transfer material works perfectly if you follow the instructions.
Cons
3 of the heatsinks need to be cut to size if you want to use them with the Swiftech GPU waterblock. Apparently the adhesive material isn't very sticky if you do not follow the instructions.
Summary
I had to cut 3 of these down to size to fit with a GPU water block on an ATI1900XT. In the process I was happy to see they are pure copper. The instructions say to clean the RAM, apply the heatsink, and hold for 5-10 seconds. I did that, held them very tight for 15 seconds, and when I was done I could pickup the video card by the RAM sinks! The adhesive works well and the thermal transfer is wonderful. These RAM sinks work MUCH more efficiently than the Zalman blue ones, and I'm guessing it's the thermal adhesive and pure copper that make them work so well.
Oh if anyone is wondering, with an ATI1900XT you can run without RAM sinks when you switch to water cooled GPU but as soon as you play some games the RAM gets VERY hot and I was crashing. I put the heatsinks on and they get really hot but the system is not crashing in games now.

Pros
They function as they should
Cons
Thermal pad is weak
Summary
You may want to opt for Thermal Adhesive like Artic Silver as the provided thermal pads are fairly weak.

Pros
good looking
Cons
none
Summary
Although there is some complain about the thermal tape couldn't stick well, I bought it for my 8800gt upgrade soon. It looks really cool and I believe I can solve the problem with Arctic Silver themal paste.

Pros
Outstanding cooling, good looks
Cons
Yea yea the tape sucks....do what I did and get AS thermal adhesive (epoxy). Just be sure and check HSF for clearance before sticking them.
Summary
I wasn't sure if I was going to be happy with this purchase or not. I also bought and installed (2)Z**man 120mm fans, Z*lman vf-900 VGA cooler, and a va*tech 4 fan controller. I spent some time and money on this project. But I am not disappointed. My results are awesome. My VGA and mobo temps are so low now it's sick, and they barely climb any under load.
