  A lot of people have heard of Arkua and/or Thermosonic, but what most people don't know is that this heatsink manufacturer also makes 1U heatsinks. What is somewhat mind boggling is that an entire 1U server case is only 1.75" thick - leaving just barely 30mm for a cooling solution. The average cost per hour of downtime (according to Strategic Research Corp) can range anywhere from $89,500 to $6,500,000! Therefore the efficiency and reliability of a HS/F design is even more critical in a 99.999999% uptime server environment where system failure due to an overcooked processor simply will not do.

1U heatsinks have other potential uses as well. A good example would be in Project Numenor as a low profile replacement of the Spire 5P53B3 if need be. People looking for a high-end solution to cool their graphics chip also comes to mind.

Without further ado, let's take a closer look at the Arkua 6149 1U HS/F.
