Dimensions also some graphs of pressure drop etc. anything that could compare it to the APS unit. I know the APS unit is much thicker than my stocker right now, and as pointed above a different fin design. My question is that with the "thinner" but more efficient design, compared to the APS model, will I see better cooling with the idea of better power as well? I also love the splitter that comes with the IC to keep sufficient air flow, great idea. Also when will this part be available to us here in the US as I can't find it anywhere.
There is a fair amount of test data here which will answer most of your questions.
