Coolink's ChipChilla Chipset Cooler Heatsink


Most of us spend so much time swooning over our precious CPU coolers and elegant video cards, we always tend to neglect the poor old Chipset. They get hot too! This is why Coolink has invented the new ChipChilla chipset cooler. Standing only 94mm tall, can this chipset cooler stand up to the harsh conditions of the standard chipset? Let's find out!

Your chipset can be responsible for many tasks ranging from communications with your SATA and ethernet to your sound card, south bridge, and busses. Cooling the chipset can be very important and help reduce the stress on this important chip.


Coolink's take:

"Is your chipset overheating? Featuring a large 6mm Dual-Heatpipe and a quiet 60mm fan, the ChipChilla easily chills today's hot & overclocked chipsets while keeping noise at a minimum. Thanks to the asymmetrical design and the flexible mounting system for mainboards with push-pins and mounting-hooks, the ChipChilla offers broad compatibility with Intel & AMD motherboards."
