Hey Miners 👷🏻♂️⛏ We have a special sneak peek of a new Active Air-cooled Heatsink being developed by
TUL. It's currently still in development as part of an
all-in-one Air-cooled Solution, the final specs and results are still being measured.
But if you are looking for an alternative to Water Cooling, this new air cooling by
TUL could be the answer.

What's amazing about this heatsink?
TUL heatsink is different from the
SQRL stock heatsink.
TUL's heatsink uses four heat pipes used to carry heat away from core components. It provides a good circulation as it transports the heat from the chip and spreads it onto the heatsink fins better.
And the material matters too! Thermal conductivity dictates the efficiency of heat dissipation. Copper has the best thermal conductivity compared to typical stock Aluminum heat sinks,
401W/mK at 25C versus Aluminum's thermal conductivity of
205W/mK at 25C.
With just a simple fan and no supporting chassis, this heatsink has already let a
Whitefire🔥's 0xToken at 700Mhz hitting a hashrate of 15.5GH/s!
You can take a look at the alpha test for yourself here:
As you can see there, using delta fan the temperature is around 85-88oC. It's not a safe operating temperature, but there are still a lot of improvements that are in the works. In a quick test, TUL focused the airflow into two
BTU9P's with these heatsinks and the temperature dropped to around 70oC!
With just a rudimentary shell, the temperature went over 15oC lower. There are still more optimizations in the pipeline, we will report as soon as we have news.
|Testing with Focused Airflow|
TUL's new heatsink is a must-have component for your air-cooling solution. It is compatible with
BCU1525, and any
VCU1525s. This new heatsink is still in the testing phase, so not yet sold by
TUL, but anyone interested in pre-orders for the first batch can reach out.

TUL! Thank you for consistently developing for the FPGA mining community!🥂
