It's easy to forget how long you've been working at something when it's fun, but apparently it's the 20th year of Frostytech!
I think we've tested something north or 800 or 900 heat sinks in that time? I've lost count... We've seen every kind of CPU thermal solution from the dead basic extruded aluminum jobbies back in the days of the Intel Celeron 300A, to significantly more exotic phase-change cryogenic coolers, liquid metal alloys driven by magnetohydrodyamics and pretty much every conceivable variation of a heat pipe and thin fin you can think of. I've seen at least one fan catch fire and explode and more spinning fan blades than I care to admit have drawn blood from my fingertips.
I think the neatest thing Frostytech has done is simply facilitate conversations between a diverse group of engineers, scientists, entrepreneurs and readers from around the globe. I remember one particular chat with a Korean thermal engineer on the floor of Computex Taipei; he was describing a nuance of heatpipe design in Korean, which the marketing rep was finding a challenge to translate the technical lingo to English. After a few minutes and with the aid of the usual back of napkin sketches, I'd leap frogged the translator despite not knowing a word of Korean! Like math, I guess engineering concepts are universal.
I'd like to thank you, the reader for stopping by to read our reviews. I'd also like to thank the manufactures, marketing reps and advertisers who have supported this little endeavour in so many ways.
