” … Heat sinks are devices that enhance heat dissipation from a hot surface, usually the case of a heat generating component, to a cooler ambient, usually air. For the following discussions, air is assumed to be the cooling fluid. In most situations, heat transfer across the interface between the solid surface and the coolant air is the least efficient within the system, and the solid-air interface represents the greatest barrier for heat dissipation. A heat sink lowers this barrier mainly by increasing the surface area that is in direct contact with the coolant. This allows more heat to be dissipated and/or lowers the device operating temperature. The primary purpose of a heat sink is to maintain the device temperature below the maximum allowable temperature specified by the device manufacturer.” http://www.aavid.com/thermal-tools/how-to-select-heatsink

Uji coba sederhana keping pendingin (heat sink) dengan kipas biasa (bukan blower). Untuk set up seperti ini hasilnya heat sink mendapat aliran udara sekitar 228 ft/min.
