Announcement of Alpha U90C-27NT / L90C-64NT Passive Heat Sink
for Intel Nehalem-EP Processor (Socket LGA1366)
Issue Date: 2009/04/13

Alpha has expanded its wide range of off-the-shelf products to meet with our customer's requirements.

We have released two new passive heat sinks for Intel's Nehalem-EP processors (Socket LGA1366). The U90C-27NT is for 1U systems and the L90C-64NT is for 2U. These heatsinks feature Alphaç—´ efficient elliptical fins that maximize available surface area while maintaining a lower pressure-drop. They also feature our patented copper embedded base to reduce spreading resistance and maximize heat transfer.
These heat sinks mount through the four holes surrounding the socket. Four spring-loaded shoulder screws will secure the heat sink to the backing plate*, which is attached to the backside of the PC Board.

Details (drawings, thermal data, etc...) are available from our online catalog.
Shipments will begin in Apr. 13, 2009.

* The backing plate is not included with these heatsinks. This should come already installed on most motherboards.
